Mr & Mrs

Hi there

Back again with another recent make, this time it's the card I made for my brother and Sarah for their wedding earlier this month.

I used a Clearly Besotted set I hadn't used before, loving the design of these leaves.

I started by stamping the leaves and sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock in VersaMark ink before heat embossing with platinum embossing powder.  I separately stamped the magnolia, also heat embossed, coloured with ProMarkers and fussy cut it out.  I die cut the stamped panel with a diagonal stitched rectangle and also die cut a piece of pale blue cardstock with a stitched die and matted them together before adhering flat to my card base.  The magnolia was popped up on 3D foam and then I coloured the empty spaces in the leaves with a pale blue ProMarker.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Magnolia Blooms
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Platinum
  • Dies: MFT - Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Rectangles
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
