Happily Ever After

Hey everyone, how are you all doing?

I’m back today with a card that was relatively quick and simple for me – just a couple of hours! Even my simplest cards take this amount of time as I do my designing on the fly and usually only sit down with a vague idea of maybe one element of my design (a colour, or stamp set, for example) when I get started!

So here is today’s card:

I just love how romantic this one is!

I started with a Rustic Cream card base and stamped the stamp I made from the Parisian Lace Doily Die (see this post) using a mix of Jenny Bowlin Malted Milk ink and VintageTouch Chamomile ink.

I then die-cut another die from Eclipse Masking Tape, positioned over the stamped image and stamped Lace Bouquet with VersaMark ink before embossing with WOW! Vanilla White Embossing Powder.

To add the sentiment I adhered some tissue paper to 1 1/2″ Scor-Tape to make some giant washi taope then stamped the sentiment from WMS Big Day Additions using Kraft ink. I adhered the whole strip across the width of the card then trimmed the edges. And done!

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. I’m off to do some crafting for the latest Paper Crafts call! Thanks so much for stopping by and see you again soon!

  1. Glad you are enjoying the JB ink – I love my JB inks and use them pretty much exclusively with Fresh Inks (similar to Amuse pigment). This card has such a precious vintage feel.

  2. Wow, this card is so so elegant! I love that you actually made a stamp from a die (I need to check this post out!). Any couple getting married would be thrilled to receive this card!

  3. Truly beautiful, Taheerah! This may look simple and elegant to the average person (and it is) but another papercrafter knows how much work went into this. Beautiful work, Taheerah!

  4. Taheerah, this is so elegant! Maybe it's "siimple", but it carries a lot of punch! 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!
