On Your Special Day...

Hi again. The challenge over at DDSB this week is: Weddings.  I don't have many of this type card to make anymore, but now I have one on hand if I do. LOL.  This is also my first venture in doing WOW.  I always love what other people do, I just don't know where to start.  I decided to do a tri-shutter card; I haven't done that style in ages.

With the card closed you can see all of the pearls that were used. The lace was purchased at Joann's, the pearls, roses & bow at Michael's.   I colored the roses on two images and then pop-dotted one on the other.

I believe that all of the embossing is from Cuttlebug.  There are at least three different embossing folders used.

And that, as they say, is that.  Not as difficult as I had imagined, but I still think I could have done more with it.  And I think the cards by the DT are much nicer.  So of course, you will need to stop by and see their awesome cards, too.  The store has a new sale going on for the month of June; I'm sure you'll be happy that you stopped by.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Stamp Something - sentiment
Simply Create - special day
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - anything
CES Challenges - embossing
The Spotlight Challenge - challenge yourself
A Spoon Full of Sugar - flowers
Partytime Tuesdays - anything

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - lace
Claudia and Company - fancy folds
Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge - summer

Well, I hope you've enjoyed another of my designs and that you will leave a comment.  The winner for my New Followers candy only has two more days, before I will be drawing a new winner.  I'll be drawing a new name on Friday morning, if I haven't heard from the original name.

this card is absolutely amazing! It reminds me of a wedding cake...yum! Also I wanted to stop by today because you left me a comment over at Cheery Lynn Designs regarding my selective embossing tutorial... I am sorry that my card and the photos were confusing (my note to readers about it was small and easily missed) I took the photographs for the tutorial but the card was white and the embossing hard to see using the Damask plate, so I made a different card with a different plate using the same technique...that's why the photos and my card didn't match. But the technique works great... as long as you keep both dies CUT SIDE UP. Thanks for stopping by the blog and again, this project of yours is AMAZING!!
