With Love

We have a wedding to go to next weekend and the invitations featured a beautiful wreath so I thought I’d recreate one on my card for the happy couple.

I started with a pile of branches and leaves that I cut from the Flower Market cartridge.


Have you added this cartridge to your Cricut Cartridge Collection?  I love all the 3D items that you can make…I’m particularly fond of the bicycle and the wagon 🙂

Alas, things were not going together quite as I had pictured so I grabbed a recent purchase and stamped the wreath base on a colonial white circle…I then started layering and it felt like things were coming together a bit better.

This was the look I wanted.  One of my sister consultants had shared a recent wreath card she’d made using the Rustic Fundamentals which seemed like a good choice so out they came with a little Seaglass glitter paper.  my card is done days before the event…I’m impressed with myself, LOL!

I hope you’ll take a minute to tell me what you think of my card.

Color My Heart #143 – Wedding Bling

Oh how I love Black and White with a touch of bling…in the case of the Color My Heart Dare #143 that bling is Gold.

I needed a wedding card, but also had a little girl watching over my shoulder impatiently telling me what I should do differently, I sent her gardening with her granddad but that didn’t last long so I knew my time was limited.  I turned to the Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and found this cute wedding cake.  I don’t care much for the 5 X 7 cards so I sized it down to 5.5″, then I decided I didn’t want an all black card so I cut it apart and it became the front panel of a white card.  I then cut the ribbons from a piece of Gold Glitter Paper and glued them on with my glue pen.  Super simple.

The inside was stamped with Congratulations and then the wedding ring icon from the same cartridge was cut at 4.25 and mounted underneath.

I cherish my wedding cards and just recently went back and read all the kind wishes.  I hope you have been inspired to take a look at black, white and gold and see what you can make today.

Nice Neutral Newlyweds

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter N.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their M element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.  If you’re coming from >>> you’re on the right path.

My “N” is two fold…a neutral card using the Newlyweds stamp.

I love Close to My Heart’s Embossing Folders  the Damask Embossing Folder leaves such a nice clean, deep impression.  I especially love using it on our white daisy cardstock for it’s elegant look.  I wanted a simple and elegant look for this wedding card so I kept with a neutral palette of black & white.  The card front is tied with a piece of black Baker’s Twine and the Newlywed car is mounted on 2 inch square cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge, the square is then cut again at 2 1/4 from Black Glitter Paper.  I know I’ve mentioned that I love our Glitter Paper because it doesn’t “shed” and works slick as a whistle in the Cricut.

As you know I think it’s just as important to decorate the inside of the card so after stamping “Oh Happy Day” from the Artiste Collection Bundle I topped it off with silver and black Shimmer Trim.

I hope you’ll hop on over to Catherine’s Catscrapbooking where you’ll discover her use of the letter N.

Thanks for stopping by!
