WWC44 – Buffy’s Anything Goes…with Weddings
Welcome to this weeks Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. Don’t you love the title Buffy gave us. Lovely cake too. Yum! When I saw the title I couldn’t help grinning as I thought about weddings I’ve attended (including my own!). It’s true…anything goes with weddings. I’ve seen it and lived it!
Wedding Dots and Wreath
A little detail shot to show you the layers and levels.
Supplies & Measurements:
Stamps: Wondrous Wreath, Dots for Days (background stamp)
Inks: Rose Red, Versamark (you can use Whisper White Craft Ink too)
Paper: Whisper White, Rose Red, Blackberry Bliss Cardstock & Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Pack – heart, 1-3/4″ Circle, Curvy Corner Trio (Holiday Catalog)
Tools & Adhesives:
Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Wonderful Wreath Framelits, Snail, Fine Tip Liquid Glue Pen, dimensionals
I left the inside blank (except for some partial wreath images in the bottom corners) so I can personalize the card for a wedding, an anniversary, engagement or other joyful occasion. I think I could even get away with using this for a new baby, baptism or confirmation card. After all…isn’t a wreath a symbol of life, completeness and so on. And that tiny heart a symbol of love, grace and new beginnings?
I don’t know about you but I love background stamps. Flat as the images are they still add a wonderful layer of texture for a card. Easy too. No dies…no extra paper…just a bit of ink and an image. The card was pretty without the dots when I created the first version…but…the dots took it to a whole new level.
The punched curvy corners added another layer of interest (and dare I say elegance?) to the design as well. I love that new trio punch and I love how the corners lined up perfectly when I did both the top and back levels. I punched with a bit of trepidation but it turned out beautifully don’t you think? Hm…I just realized I should have added another detail picture so you could see how perfectly all the edges line up. Ah well…a thought for another post. I’m sure I’ll be doing that corner punch thing again…and again.
And lastly. I love that bit of glimmer in the small heart. A perfect bit of symbolism for a wedding card. After all a wedding is hopefully a shining beginning to a lifetime of love. Starts small and grows from there.
That’s it for this challenge. To see the rest of the design teams Color Challenge contributions head on over to the Challenge blog website here. That’s also where you can add your own creation with the linky doodad. When you add your own design and there are more than three entries, one of you will be a challenge winner or runner up and have the option to place our new badges on your own site. Of course…you’ll also win bragging rights!
I hope you’ll join us next Wednesday for yet another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
Hugs and Blessings to all my challenge friends and readers.
