Guest Stamper and Cute Wedding Card

My daughter, Kristen, was staying with us this past week along with her hubby, David, and my little grandson, Kesten!  Such fun!  Kris wanted to make a wedding card for her friend, in whose wedding Kristen was a bridesmaid. She needed a very unconventional wedding card because her friend is very unconventional as well.  Kristen's bridesmaid dress was actually a red polka dot skirt with a white t shirt. 

The wedding invites sported an old fashioned penny farthing bicycle and there were some chalkboard decor items at the wedding as well.  Here's what Kristen created:

  • I think it's just adorable, and because it's not a traditional wedding card, it could be used for many different occasions!
  • When I was showing Kris my stash of DSP, her eye caught the Polka Dot Parade package right away and this piece was perfect, because it mirrored her bridesmaid skirt.
  • Looking over my stamp sets, she picked out Timeless Talk right away as well, because of the same type of bicycle that was on the wedding invitation.

  • I showed her how to do the Faux Chalkboard technique and how to use framelits to cut out images, and she used the Labels Collection Framelits to cut out the bicycle and the Apothecary Accents framelits to die cut the sentiment which is from the set Layered Labels, which just happens to coordinate with the Apothecary Accents framelits.
  • She stamped the images in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with White Stampin' Emboss powder.  Then she sponged some Whisper White Craft Ink around the edges and very sparingly in the middle.
  • She chose bright Daffodil Delight as the card base and used some 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Daffodil Delight to accent the card with a fork bow.

I love the cheeriness of this card.  It just seems to say "Celebrate!"  I'm sure the newlyweds will love it!
