Stamping for fun?




Hello Friends,

Happy Labor Day!

I spent some time in the studio recently creating a card for a very special wedding we attended yesterday. Usually I sis down with a design in my head with an end product in mind.  This card  wasn't one where I was trying to make a project that is easy to reproduce.  Sometimes it's fun to really add all of the bells and whistles.  I just stamped to my heart's content and I LOVE how it turned out.

Since Covid is still a big, gray cloud over all events, it's challenging to plan anything....especially a wedding.  We are so honored to be included in the small group of friends who will be attending.  I really wanted to make something special for the bride and groom and I hope they like it.



I love, love, LOVE the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494).  There are so many gorgeous textures and it has a fun, rustic feel.  The design I chose has a touch of Rococo Rose in and it felt perfect for this card.  The Forever Fern stamp set worked perfectly along with the coordinating dies.  I added a fun pocket to hold the money and then made a spot on top with space to write our message and signature.

The card is a slim line design which I love.  I thought it paired perfectly with the Champagne Foil.  I made a matching envelope with a cool closure too.  Envelope measurements: Designer Series Paper 9-1/4" x 11-3/4"  Score on the short side at 2-3/8" and 6-1/2".  Score on the long edge at 1-1/2" and 11".

Wishing you plenty of time to get your fingers inky and a wonderful week ahead.

Stampin' Hugs,
