Wedding Card

I know it's been awhile since I posted a card, but I finally felt well enough to spend a little time in the craft room.  This card is for my Card Exchange Club and I think its gorgeous!

I used the "It's Valentines" stamp set from K. Andrew Designs.    Remember that Kristal's stamps are made here in the USA and that a portion of the proceeds from each set is donated to charity.  You can purchase this great set of stamps by clicking on the image below.

Now on to the video.  One thing that I forgot to mention on the video is that I used "Dusty Concord" distress ink from Tim Holtz to ink around the edges of the inside mat before adhering it to the base.  Also in the video, I discuss a lesson I learned about my homemade glitter sprays.  You DON'T want to miss this if you plan on making your own glitter spray sometime!



Finally, I am linking this project to the ODBD Challenge at the Operation Write Home blog. You can find this by clicking here.  I stumbled across this organization a month or two before Christmas.  Volunteers make cards to send to service men and women that they can send back to their families and loved ones.  It is a simple way to show appreciation to someone who is working to help me remain free.  I plan to begin making cards as I am able and sending them in.  To find out more about Operation Write Home click here.  Now I won't be sending these cards to Operation Write Home, but I will send others later.

Here's a final look at today's card.


Thanks for stopping by today.
