Mr & Mrs Johnson


Thank you for the warm welcome back to blogland. :)  I appreciate the love and encouragement.  Today I'd like to share 2 special wedding cards I made for one of my co-workers and his new wife.  It was a last minute card that came together in my mind while driving home from work of all things.  lol.  Hey where ever the inspiration strikes right?  hehe..  Here's the card featuring Mr & Mrs from SCRS.

Mr. & Mrs ~ Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp

This is one of my favorite go-to wedding stamps.  Aki did an amazing job illustrating it.  I went with an Asian theme pulling the papers from my Hanko Designs stash.  The gold paper is actually from a Martha Stewart paper pad.  The pink flowers on the bridge are from Island Scrapbooking.  The circle and scallop circle dies used are from Lifestyle Crafts except for that bridge which is from La-La Land Crafts.

I love the contrast of colors with the black and the washi papers are so pretty.  I tried to color the images up like RJ and Jenny, I hope I did them justice and that they like this card.

Here is the 2nd card which more co-workers signed featuring one of the cut & emboss dies from Cuttlebug (Flower Bramble by Anna Griffin) by Provocraft.

Isn't it beautiful?  I love the details on the flowers and the leaves.  It's a pretty big card right?  It measures 5 1/2 x 7 1/2.  Yes the die itself is 5x7.  I used washi paper with red & black Tsumugi cardstock from Hanko Designs and some gold cardstock.

Here's a better view of the embossed features.  This was a quick card to make.  The only part that took awhile was choosing the papers (hahaha).

CHEERS to the newly wedded couple, blessings to them both.  I have some other projects I've been working on to share and hopefully I'll have some time to do that.  I'm actually looking forward to that. For now I'm signing off, thanks for stopping by today.  Happy Monday friends, have a terrific day!!

Both cards are gorgeous. I'm sure the couple will be amazed and thrilled to receive them. The card with the couple on the bridge is so romantic and magnificently executed. Your sense of color and balance is remarkable. Thank you for letting me see your work.

Your cards are total knock-outs. I really love the way you laid out the first one with the circle and bridge in the background. I have that bridge die too and never thought of using it like you did. So clever. Your 2nd card is gorgeous too with all the pretty details.
