At my Christmas Card class the other day, we were talking about what types of cards they wanted to make for my stamp camp class. Diana had mentioned that she needed a wedding card, so could we do one. I said, "Sure, we haven't done a wedding card in a long time". I actually don't remember the last time I made a wedding card for a class. I wanted a card that was simple, but elegant at the same time.
The Garden Trellis Embossing Folder adds texture and elegance to it. I used the sentiments from the Better Together stamp set, with the inside sentiment saying All The Best for a future filled with love! The little touch of gold with the 1/8" gold ribbon really brings it up a notch too.
There were some ladies that wanted an anniversary card instead, so we dug out my old retired sets and found some great stamps that would work for the size of oval we had. The current stamp sets did not have a big enough happy anniversary stamp in them. This is why I don't get rid of too many of my retired stamps. We still use them from time to time. Plus, I just love them and don't want to get rid of them. I am usually not a keeper, but when it comes to my craft supplies, I sure am. How about you?
To make this card you will need the following products:
Thick Whisper White Cardstock #140272
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Fresh Fig Cardstock #144242
- cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
- cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
I used stampin dimensionals on the ovals to pop up the sentiment. This card would be very easy to change the color of the cardstock to coordinate with the wedding colors.
We had a busy and fun weekend at our house. We are in the process of updating our home, now that we are empty nesters. We have to do something with our time, so why not work on the house. On Saturday, we (I should say Mr. Wonderful) started working on painting the hall upstairs and trim work for the stairways. Once the painting is done upstairs and the plumbing fixtures changed in the main bathroom, all we have to do is the carpet and then the upstairs is done! Yay!
Our new countertops are getting measured this week and should be in at the end of September. We are still discussing what color to paint the kitchen, which has been interesting. The new knobs are on the kitchen cabinets and I really like them. Who would have thought that just changing the knobs it can change the whole look of your cabinets. We are not going to be doing anything with the floors at this time because I am still doing daycare. I don't want to put in new carpet and having one of the babies either, pee, poop or puke on it. LOL With my luck, that is exactly what would happen.
A lot of people have been asking me when I am going to retire from daycare. I really don't know. I have been setting dates that I want to retire, and then God has a different plan. So, for now it is whenever God tells me it is time to retire. I can't believe in November it will be 29 years of having a daycare in my home. It still amazes me, especially since I was never getting married or have children. Boy, was God laughing at that one.
On Sunday, I went to Sip and Dipity Paint Bar with a customer, now a new friend, Diana. We had such a good time. One side is pumpkins and the other side is a snowman. Isn't that so cute?! I love it! Although, I love anything with snowman on it.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a magical Monday!
