|Wedding & Baby Weekend - Card fun!|
I started with the wedding card because I knew that it would take me the longest. I used some baby blue card stock from a recent Simon Says Stamp card kit and folded it in half and cut down the sides a bit. I didn't want the standard A2 card size because I knew I needed a larger area. I made sure I had a envelope in my stash that would fit (but if I didn't, I would just make one with my We R' Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board).
I then used the Stampin' Up Blooming Hearts die to cut a white heart frame and glued that down. I cut out individual flowers with my mini flower punch in velum paper as well as the new glitter paper available from Stampin' Up in the Sale-A-Bration catalog for free! I love that paper! I adhered these on one-by-one and then added rhinestones to the inside of all of the velum flowers to make them stand out a bit more.

Next, I used the Concord & 9th Sophisticated Scripts in both the large and small sizes to create the names on the wedding card. I used Navy Memento ink and stamped them onto the same white card stock with the mini Misti to make it easier to get a good impression. I fuzzy cut those so there would be a small white outline and then adhered it to velum and fuzzy cut that as well for the small border. It made it stand out a bit better from the blue once attached to the card with the velum. As the final touch, I added a small heart embellishment and this card was finished!

For the baby card I started with the same blue card stock cut to an A2 sized card. I then stamped the new Whimsy Stamps Noah's Ark. I wanted to watercolor this with my Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils so I used the Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper. I watercolored this in two layers so that I could add some detail and let it dry. I then used by black and white gel pens to re-outline and to add some finishing touches. I cut down the watercolor panel and backed it with foam tape to include it on the card base. I also laid down a beautiful piece of patterned paper to set it apart a bit. Finally, I used nuvo drops in a few colors to add some finishing touches to the card. I just love the way this turned out!

So, those were the two cards - now I need to prepare for the fun weekend. I don't do good away from the house because of my pain so I am anxious about that - but I am still excited to go to the events. Hope you enjoyed the card! Have a great day! Jude :-)
