I keep making wedding cards!

Good morning! It is a beautiful sunny and warm morning here and I can't wait to get out in the garden. The weeds are calling ;)

For the first one I used Card Patterns Sketch #60 again and this beautiful Pink Paislee patterned paper "Queen Bee" 6 X 6 paper pad. Love these colours and patterns and this was a really easy card to make using Spellbinder dies and an EK Success border punch. I added a sentiment that I stamped from the SU Fancy Flexible Phrases set and added a length of very vanilla taffeta ribbon over the scalloped borders. I also added 3 yellow paper "straw flowers".

For this second one, I used the same sketch and a variety of papers. K and CO (for the black bottom panel), MM for the circular and square and the green is Pink Paislee "Bayberry Cottage" The stamped mousie couple is another stamp from Stampavie entitled "Mice Kissing". I stamped the image twice, one on a vintage white cs from PTI and cut out just the tulip and mice part and again on a MM patterned black and white from the older Sabrina pack and I cut out the tulips to paper piece them. The mice were coloured with Copic markers and I popped them up on the "framed" center. The sentiment is from the same Fancy Flexible Phrases set and I used Spellbinder dies to cut these. I added a Sabrina ribbon around the front of the bottom panel and also used a couple of MS punches to create the greenery.

The last card uses the DCWV line of Cafe Mediterranean 8 X 8 paper (the glossy teal) and the whole mice couple is stamped, coloured and popped up on another piece of DCWV paper. I colored the image with Copics and also paper pieced these tulips with a scrap piece from the Sabrina line (I think)
The sentiment is the same and I added 3 tiny pearls to it and sponged the edges of the smallest mega scalloped Nestability die. I made the scalloped borders with an EK succes punch and the SU border punch was used for the black. All of these were layered and then a wide piece of white lace on top and finally the framed image.
Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for taking a peek today!
