I’m so excited to be participating in the Seashore Stampers Blog Hop once again, and I’m sharing a card that’s very special to me. This month the theme is Wedding, and it just so happens that a dear friend of mine got married last weekend, so I get to share the card I made for her!
Christina and I first met in late 2016, at a cardmaking class. We hit it off right away and found out we’re even from the same hometown – what a fun coincidence! She soon started asking questions about joining Stampin’ Up!, and we met a few times to make sure all her questions were answered and that she felt confident taking that next step. In November 2017 she jumped in, and since that time she has been unstoppable! She reached both her Quick Start goals easily, and then reached another stampin’ milestone when she promoted to Silver …. all at the same time as she and her partner planned a wedding, bought a house, and adopted a new dog into their family! She gets more done in a day than most people do in a week and I have so much admiration and respect for her!
I knew right away that I wanted to make her a really special wedding card, and I thought the Magnolia Lane suite would be just perfect. I don’t have the dies for this set (yet!) but it was easy to do a bit of fussy cutting on the large flower. I CASE’d this design from two different cards that I saw online, and I loved the technique of stamping two flowers and cutting out the centre of one, to add a three-dimensional feel to the multiple petals. I think it turned out really well!
I didn’t have a lot of room to add a sentiment on the front of the card, so I stamped one from Beautiful Bouquet on the inside. That stamp set has so many lovely sentiments, perfect for a wide variety of occasions!
