Best wishes



Here's another wedding card I made using more of my new Penny Black stamps. The specific names of the stamps are in my supply list at the bottom of this post.

I originally had a big lace bow and hat pin on this card, but I didn't like how it covered a lot of the cake. After gluing down the bow and pin, I removed it....but of course, I ended up tearing a little bit of the white CS in the process so I had to think of something to "cover" the tear. That's where the tiny twinkles came in! ....and that, my friends, is my (goofy and clumsy) creative process, lol!

That's it for me today! Have a good one!

Sometimes those mistakes turn out to be a good thing, and that certainly happened with this simple yet elegant wedding card! Those little gems add just the right touch of sparkle! I LOVE how you colored the cake, but that corner treatment is just fabulous!!

LeAnne said...

NO! I can't believe you had a booboo like SO many of my cards do! Creative minds can always come up with a creative fix, right??? What a beautiful image and your final creation is just perfect! Love the colors!

Denise I had to laugh at your story about the little cardstock rip. I have had many of those. Isn't funny how a little oops can turn into the perfect fix. Beautiful card.

This is gorgeous!!

Well ... I would hardly call this goofy and clumsy!!! I am glad you took the big bow off ... though ... I love the cake ... and it would be a shame to hide it! You just seem to know exactly how much to do ... not to overdo your card ... and still add enough detail for that "ooohhh" moment when we see it here! Hugs xxaxx PS ... Can you tell I am your no.1 fan? President of your fan club ... even! (wink)

Another gorgeous creation.. This cake looks like it could walk off your card.. Great job.

Amy Johnson said...

And to think I thought you did that intentionally! Wow! What a gorgeous 'mistake'. I love it!

Jocelyn aka JoBear2 said...
