Cased Wedding Card

My mother in law needed me to make a wedding card for two friends of hers who are getting a second chance at love. I went on Pinterest and it took me to THIS BLOG. I knew right away that I wanted to make a card inspired by Karen, who herself said that her card was inspired by others who made simlar cards.  . I used different supplies to get to a similar look. What you can't tell from the photo is the bride puzzle piece is covered with sparkles. I used my nuvo Glamour Glitter Pen to go over the surface. What is also hard to see from the photo is that the white square base is embossed. I made this card into an easel card. I used a white gel pen to write congratulations and the name of the bride and the groom. 
 My card differs from the inspiration card in that I didn't add buttons on the groom puzzle piece, but I did put a bow tie. a cut piece of black cardstock.  Sometimes you just has to CASE. Copy and Share everything another artist's card. My mother always said "imitation is a sincere form of flattery." She is right.

Pop and twist baby card

Last week for the watercolor Wednesday for SCS. it was how to paint a moon. I made this envelope and pop and twist card for my mother and father in law to give to a friend of theirs who just had a baby boy. I looked at several different images on pinterest but this card was freehand drawn and painted.
