This week over at Card-a-Day blog, we are celebrating marriage! That's right we have a wedding theme all week - if you haven't had a chance to stop by and be inspired, please do so -- in addition to our weekly challenges, we also have a monthly prize! You can easily link up by going to the end of my post on the blog by clicking here.
I made a gate folded card that is an A2 size card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded up so it would fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing.
Here are a couple of pictures of my card:
|Inside of Card|
I cut the images on the front of the card using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge. The heart image can be found on page 51, C1, Shift, Accent 2 and was cut at 3 3/4" and 4". The wedding couple on the front of the card can be found on page 61, Accent 2, < z > and Shift, Accent 2, < Z > cut at 3 3/4".
I used a piece of our black glitter paper for the top layer of the heart over a piece of black cardstock. I have to say that our glitter paper cuts "like butter" on my Cricut Eexpression - so smooth - no glitter flying anywhere - no frayed edges.
For the sentiment on the inside of the card "MADE FOR EACH OTHER", I used a stamp set that can be found in our Avonlea Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking kit. I stamped it with Slate ink as well as the 2 bits of "flair" on either side.
