Here is one of my most recent creations:
I made this card to send to my brother-in-law, Greg, and his fiance, Tara, on the announcement of their engagement.
THE INSPIRATION: We received their "save the date" card (shown below the card) and I immediately thought--Hey, those look like Stampin' Up! colors! Quickly running to my craft space, I pulled out the cardstock and ink pads to match (Chocolate Chip, Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue and Whisper White). Baroque Motifs just screams wedding to me, so I pulled that out. I had just received the Lovely Letters set that I earned for free and knew that would be perfect too! Of course, I had to pull out my circle punches... that was a no-brainer.
Playing around with the layout... the card you see is NOT what I had originally envisioned. I first thought to stay as close to the postcard's layout as possible, but I just wasn't feeling it. It took a while, but as soon as I turned the orientation of the card, I had it! The "forever" stamp came from Fundamental Phrases.
