I do apologise for missing last week’s post but I have had some family issues to deal with, and while they have settled down there is still going to be some problems to work through.
For this post I have been playing around with the last of my Skylark papers and have made some wedding cards. I am really enjoying using a different combination of colours and papers to what I normally use. Here I have used Lagoon and the beautiful Teal shimmer trim to create a pop of colour with the Skylark papers.
For this card I have used the pattern out of the Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 page 46 and used a cut from the Artbooking cartridge (page 48) in Lagoon cardstock for the centre panel which fitted in well. I love using the Perfect Fit – Frames 2 for an accent and the little wedding couple from The Happy Couple stamp set fits perfectly in the middle. The congrats stamp is from the Cricut Artiste Collection Kudos. And I have finished the card with a flower from the Skylark Assortments.
For this card I have again used the Quatrefoil embossing folder to add some interest to the plain cardstock. I love how the papes from Skylark are great for cards as well as for scrapbook layouts and here I have trimmed the corner of the 12 x 12 paper to fit the card base. I have added an extra pennant topped with a blue epoxy bubble and the sentiment is from The Happy Couple stamp set. A very simple yet elegant card.
Again for this card I have manage to trim the patterned paper to fit the card and keep the lovely bird which ties in well with the striped lagoon paper for the bottom of the card. I have cut the lovely ribbon out with the Artbooking Cricut cartridge. I the stamp is from The Happy Couple stamp set. I have finished off with a couple of epoxy bubbles and the Teal shimmer trim.
This card was very quick and easy with the Cricut Artbooking cartridge. I have cut the same image but for a portrait card instead and teamed it with the Lagoon striped paper from Skylark pack and the Teal shimmer trim and just placed a simple sentiment on it matted with Lagoon cardstock. Another simple, yet elegant card.
