|Formal Tuxedo Shaped card|
I've made a Tuxedo Shaped card before...but not with this detail. I did several cuts to layer this card. First the base card in white card stock, then 2 black cuts split for the front and the back of the card. The front jacket cut opened to reveal another layer-the formal shirt cumber-band buttons and bow tie.
I pinned a card like this on my board "cards I want to recreate" hoping it had a link so I could learn how it was done. But no link...so I had to try and try again until I got a card I'm pleased with. I even made the little roses. Fancy Formal and Fun.
A friend at our local Woman's Club asked if I would create a card for her Grandson's wedding to be held in May. So I'm working on several samples. Up next is a white on white card. Again I pinned a similar card on Pinterest so I looked at that for inspiration.
|Double Hearts Wedding Card|
If she chooses this sample I will remake one with all pure luxury card stock. If you noticed the base card is a different shade of white. It's plain card stock...the hearts were cut from scraps of pure luxury card stock by Gina K from Stamp TV. This is a double embossed card with embossed lines to separate the two designs and to place the sentiment.
Have you notice the doily in the background of these photos? I crochet in the evenings while my husband watches TV...he flips channels constantly. So instead of getting annoyed or attached to watching one show, I crochet. It keeps the peace and keeps me involved and productive. I love this pattern I will post a picture another time so you can see the beautiful design. Have you ever done a 4 treble popcorn crochet stitch, or a cluster decrease? I'm still learning new stitches after 30 years of crocheting.
|Lacey Fan-Thinking of you|
Up next is yet another Pinterest inspired card. I have a friend whose husband has been very ill for so long it breaks your heart. I just deleted the details...to sad...to much information. Any way this is the card I made thinking of Jackie.
The cards are similar to the inspiration cards but I do add my own flair. If you have an interest in comparing my cards to the inspiration cards just follow me on Pinterest. Then let me know how I did.
"The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free you actions will be".
That's all for now. Be wellCarole
