Wedding Wishes~Circa 1934
Hello everyone! Hope you weekend has been enjoyable so far. I have been making some challenge cards today and here is one of them. This one is for Card Patterns Sketch #92. I think this is such an interesting sketch, right up my alley.
I am so in love with this Circa 1934 Cosmo Cricket paper pad...I used it again today and it probably won't be the last time that you see it here :) I cut a couple of panels of this medallion pattern and placed on top of the pretty aqua polka dot paper and cut 4 strips of narrow silk ribbon that I have in my stash, sewed on and then added the multi colour teeny print to the top of the card and added a narrow strip of the tiny graph pattern and a length of lace. For my sentiment, I stamped this Verve Wedding Wishes from the Love Story on vintage lace card stock from PTI. I used the petite Spellbinders ovals to cut out and layered over a scalloped polka dotted one that I inked the edges with Memento Tuxedo black. I then layered with a rectangle of the same graph pattern. My flower is stamped directly onto the paper with Verve's flower from Great Friend and cut out. If you look closely, I layered a Spellbinders Flower shape cut out again using the graph pattern. The large button is from PTI and in the center I added a circle of the graph pattern paper and some black seed beads. I like how the Cosmo colours and the silk ribbon make this look like a vintage-y wedding card. This was such a fun sketch to work with! I will be adapting for some other cards for sure!
Thanks for taking a peek today,
