Hot Pink Wedding Card

Hi Everyone,

I’m back to share this Wedding Card in Hot Pink and Black using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die and some gorgeous Theresa Collins paper that Australian Simply Cards Magazine kindly provided with one of their recent issues.

P1020942

I’ve used the Mojo Monday Sketch #221 which looks like this…

Mojo221Sketch_450

It’s the last one of the year and I think I’ve done well with my “Consistency Plan” – I had promised myself to be consistent throughout the year and do the Mojo sketch each week – okay, well maybe I missed some Mojo Mondays but a whole new year is afoot and I can try again.

There’s quite a lot going on here – the flowers are cut from cardstock, the bottom one had some paper torn and stuck to black card before I ran it through the big shot with the die. The second one I cut and then stamped with a Stampin Up Fifth Avenue Floral stamp, and the top one was cut from glitter paper and topped with a black rhinestone. 

The layers beneath the flower have all been distressed, inked and silver paint swiped over them here and there.
The frame around the sentiment is something new to me - it comes from Kaiser as a blank wooden frame and I've painted mine silver and tied off some paper twine to eyelet.

The inside was decorated with the papers too and this stamp is a Kaiser sentiment. I love the swirly writing. I punched the edges of the bottom layer with a Martha Stewart arched lattice edge punch as it was almost the same pattern as the paper.

Can you see the curls sticking out of the flower – they are just thin strips of paper. I saw this lovely little trick on another blog whilst browsing around and thought it a brilliant idea. 
(Whoever that was – thank you!)

I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges also…
