Hearts Signal the Love One Shares

I am accomplishing two things at once with this wedding post.  I have 6 wedding cards to get done in the next week.  No, I do not have 6 weddings to go to, but I have an order for them.  Plus,  I have a Challenge with a background stamp.  So I used Timeless Texture for the background stamp and hearts on top.

Base:  The standard Whisper White cardstock which is always my base.  Whether it gets other cardstock on top depends on the design.

Focus:  The eyes should gravitate to the hearts, but should notice a peek of gold swirl behind them. It  is simple, but makes a statement that welcomes the new Mr. and Mrs.


Stamp Set:   Timeless Texture, Petite Pairs

Color Combination:  Pink, Gold

Ink: Gold Metallic Encore

Paper:  Gold Foil,Bride Blushing

Accessories:  Big Shot, Heart Collection,  Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder

Come Through the Gate of Happiness and Explore Happiness!

I don’t know about you, but one of my happiest places is my studio where all my Stampin’ Up! supplies are.  So today we are going in make a Gatefold Card. It is one that folds the same on both sides and meets in the middle. You will want some way to keep it closed. I used heart on one and a square on another card.  You could use a belly band, a clip, or a ribbon to help it stay closed.  As part of Card Fold Friday we need these variety of cards to spice up our designs.  Come watch the video and then explore my examples.

Measurements: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″  base

score at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ then fold

The here are the two examples in the video.

What Is the Best Form of Transportation? Hint: Healthy

Last night on the trail there was a bike club and there were a lot of them. Boy do they have it down as they were whizzing by me. So I thought about a bike card. So here is to the ones getting fit and healthy with the faithful bike.  I know that surely you know a biker out there having a birthday, this card is for them.

Base: The card starts simply with Crushed Curry cardstock and Whisper White on top.

Focus:  The eye will catch the colorful bikes done in yellow, blue, red, and beige. Then give one bike your total attention in one of the colors.  I choose to use blue. The white strip is 2″ x 5 1/4″ and the blue is 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″.
