One of my favorites
My husband is a DJ, but he also provides a photo booth and up lighting. He wanted me to make a thank you card for one of his clients that hired him for their wedding. Of course I wanted to match their wedding colors and theme. The bride's color was a deep purple and silver. She had paper lanterns as her decor for her reception - thus this card fits perfectly. This stamp of the lantern is from American Crafts set called "courtyard". I stamped it in purple and lightly colored over it with a colored pencil. I added black thread tied in a bow to the top and added a small rhinestone to dress it up even more. For the string on the white base I just drew that free hand with a journaling pen. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!, Thank You Kindly, and the border around the sentiment was from the same set as the lantern. It's hard to see, but I also stamped a background stamp with versamark ink onto the purple card base to add more dimension and elegance to the card. A fun card to make and somewhat unique for a wedding. I hope you like it too.
I was able to scrapbook while on our vacation during Spring Break. I want to share a bit on how I did that and what I did, but I have to figure out how to get the photos off my iphone and onto this blog. Let me figure that out....and then I'll share what I did while on the trip, yes actually scrappin' in the hotel room, and what I did when I got home.
