Hello crafty friends!
I finally had some down time over the weekend to do my favorite thing and that's making cards! I made quite a few and will be sharing them over the next several days so make sure you come back often to take a look.
Before I go into today's card, I wanted to mention that I will be making a change around here on the blog. I am currently looking for a new premade blogger template to make my blog a bit more interesting. I've found a few templates that caught my eyes, but have not set on one yet. Just wanted to let you know in case you mistakenly think you went to the wrong blog.
I love cardmaking challenges, but sometimes challenge rules goes against what I want to create. So, for today's card, I decided to make it for the fun of it! This card definitely makes me happy. My little sister is getting marry next month and I wanted to make her something extra special. She loves Pandas just as much as I do so Mama Elephant Pandamonium stamp set is the perfect set to create a wedding card for her.
I just received my orders from the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration on Friday, and oh boy, how excited I was to use those labels dies. I thought the labels dies paired well with those cute pandas. I also wanted to incorporate some white tulle somewhere on my card so I decided to use the tulle for the window. Originally my plan was to use clear acetate sheet for the window, but after having a difficult time deciding where to put the tulle, I decided to not use it. And I'm so glad I switched it because I absolutely love how the "tulle" window came out. I'm sorry that you can't see the tulle that well in the photograph above.
I wanted this scene to be like a photoshoot session, like when the wedded couple gets photograph after their wedding vows. I even die-cut a banner out of "camera" patterned paper. The wedding gown was made out of vellum, the bows out of glitter papers, and flowers out of scrap papers.
And that is pretty much my card for today. I do hope you enjoyed it and sorry for the lengthy post. I promise next time it'll be shorter. And thanks for sticking all the way to the end of this post. Also, many thanks again for stopping by and leaving me sweet and encouraging comments. I appreciate each and every one of them. Have a wonderful day!
