Wedding Card

Caardvarks current challenge is to create a wedding card. The prize is an opportunity to be published in the CARDS magazine.
I like to switch up my style sometimes and do something more clean. (Very hard for me to keep it simple) But I was really pleased with the way this turned out of course with the embellishment I chose I had my big design element.


I have the fantastic Verses Stamp which is the poem "How do I love Thee?" by Elizabeth Barret Browning. I knew I wanted to use it on this card and when I was rummaging through my odds and ends drawer of embellishments I found these earrings which I had snuck out of the dress up box. These were hand me downs from Great grandmas junk jewelry box and are clip ons. So when the kids would try to wear them they really hurt the ears! (Didn't stop them from trying to wear them tho!)

Very simple card but I liked how the earring provided such a beautiful accent.

Products:
  • Verses - How Do I Love Thee
  • Versafine - Dove Grey
  • Inkadinkado - Weddings Clear Set
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
  • Hat Pin
