I think I have turned into a lazy butt or something since I haven't been making regular posts. I have been making things, just haven't taken pictures *okie smacks her hand and says "bad okie...bad bad bad okie*. I am scheduling a few posts so you guys won't be over run different things in one post.
This is a card I made for someone who recently got married. I made it earlier in the week but didn't want to post it until I thought it has arrived to the receiver. I tried to mail it out one day but then the mailman didn't pick it up. I got a little perturbed about that until I read where he had put "44¢", then I felt a little silly. Not having a 2¢ stamp I had to use another 42¢, but I figure the receiver is worth it *okie cracks up laughin*.
*okie looks behind her and sees her shiny red E sitting there and then whispers....* I didn't use my Cricut at all, only used the Cuttlebug. I used Victoria on the card and border Swiss Dots on the tag. The sentiment is an Stampin Up set I got at the stamp sale back in the fall, I also used the SU corner ticket punch on the sentiment block. The card and tag are made from opal Mica cardstock. That stuff emobsses beautifully! The little flowers are Prima's and for the centers I embossed some plain brads with some black glittery embossing powder. I don't know what kind of ribbon I used, it was some I got at the LSS that closed down.
For the inside I used a piece of pearlescent vellum to stamp the sentiment on and also used the corner ticket punch on it. I used some vellum tape to attach it. I did use Stazon ink for stamping the Sentiment. Since I am not familiar with stamping on vellum I wanted to make sure the ink wasn't going to smear *okie doesn't mention that she also used the Stazon so she could sniff it.....okie really likes the smell of Stazon*. The card isn't messed up at the bottom, I had to get rid of what I had written in the card. Silly me, I didn't take a picture until after I signed it!
I really like how this card came out. And it was so simple. Sometimes I am just amazed at how versatile that the Cuttlebug is! And folks if you don't have one.........YOU NEED ONE!!
Beautiful card! I love it!! Very elegant looking - absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for sharing Okie!ReplyDelete
Absolutely Beautiful and inspiring :) I am working on black & white wedding favors for my girlfriend's wedding. I dont have a cricut though so its mostly by hand :) and big shot.ReplyDelete

What a beautiful card! Thanks so much for sharing it.ReplyDelete
Simple card and yet so beautiful. Love it! And you arek; right, if you don't have to cuttlebug you need it. I didn't have it, I had to wizard by spellbinders. Did not have success with it at all. Has used it 3 times since purchasing it in August. That's because handle keeps needing replacing. Sorry I invested in it! Cuttlebug is much better as I have been using it without incident, and I haven't had it a month yet. I Love it! Will b posting cards soon where I have used it.ReplyDelete
That is so elegant and pretty! TFS :)ReplyDelete
