I am so glad I finished this card and it turned out like how it was in my head! :) I love it when a plan comes together! ;)
I recently bought some stamps and this couple was one of the stamps. They are all previously used but totally brand new to me and I am so excited to start using them.
So all of a sudden I starting visualizing this card with the sketch from House of Cards and the stamp. I used my Cricut and the Craft Room (love the craft room!) to get a scalloped circle cut out. It's tricky when you are going for the negative. But third time was a charm :)
I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink on my embossing folder and then embossed the tan cardstock that the oval had been cut out of. I did practice this first before I did it.
I love how it turned out. Then I adhered the ribbon and the pearls. The purple flower was apart of a bigger flower so I detached it. That is not usually in my nature. If something comes together I use it like you are supposed to. But the flower that this was attached to was so awesome and 3-D-ish I thought it would take away from my couple. So I took this flower off and I am so glad I did! I put an adhesive pearl in the middle of it. Then I pop dotted this whole panel. It creates a sort of window or frame for the couple.
I wanted to use this as a Valentine's Day card but my hubby said maybe an Anniversary card. He's so smart-that's the perfect idea for this card!
Here are the challenges that I am submitting this to:
