One of my cousins is getting married this month. This is the card that my family will be giving to the happy couple. I find this card hilarious because my cousin works in a library and spends as much time reading as possible.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle from some water color paper. I stamped the books, details, and sentiment on the panel. The top hat is from Snow Cool. The pearl tiara is from Mermaid For You. Using a thin black Sharpie, I added arms, legs, and a veil.
Once all of the ink was dry, I used Distress Inks to add color to the images. I tried to keep the colors on the light side.
To finish the card, I layered a pink piece of card stock at an angle on my card base and trimmed off the parts that hung over. I adhered my stamped panel and was done.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Snow Cool, Mermaid for You, Happily Ever After, and Science of Love
Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Rectangles
Ink: Versa Fine
Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio, Black Soot, Milled Lavender, Hickory Smoke, and Salty Ocean.
Hope you enjoyed the card
