Horseshoe Congrats

Hi there

Tonight I'm sharing a commission card I made recently.  The brief was to make a wedding card, nothing too fussy, and showing the couple's names and the date of the big day.

So here's what I created...

I used a horseshoes wood mounted stamp I've owned for years and cut out the impression using a decorative mat die.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and accented with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.  I printed the names and the date from MS Word onto the same white cardstock and cut these out using a heart die.  I then die cut the 'congrats' from pale blue/grey cardstock.  All that was then needed was a bit of arranging and some 3D foam to pop up the die cuts.

Materials used:
  • Stamp: Inca Stamp - Horseshoes
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Decorative Mat Die, Congrats Word Die and Love Hearts
  • Cardstock from stash
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Accented with Wink of Stella (clear) and Glossy Accents

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
