CARDS

I am entering this card in the DT challenge at CARDZTV.  It is an "Anything Goes" challenge and I needed this for a party so I made it just in time for the challenge!  The card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 iridescent pearl.  The black is 4 1/2 by 4 3/4 then run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss dots folder. Then a frame was cut using a Spellbinders die and placed with foam tape to raise it up.  The 40 was cut at 1 1/2 inches using the Storybook cartridge.  Behind the numeral, I stamped black with a "Wedding Words" block stamp from Hero Arts.  It reads "For better or worse, for richer, for poorer" etc.  The red tag is 1 inch wide with a white tag printed on the computer and then trimmed to leave a small border.  The roses are from Rock Princess and the leaves are from Storybook.  On the inside, the frame was used from the cut on the front and topped with a smaller white one.  Another rose finishes it off nicely.  The inside sentiment was printed on the computer before running it through the Cuttlebug with the Spellbinders die.

    1. I don't see too many examples with inside of the card done. I think this is just as important as the outside. Thank for your comments!

    1. I have to admit, it isn't my original sentiment...I pulled it off the internet from a quotes page for anniversaries but I liked it and it fit. Thanks for stopping by!
