CongratulationsPosted: October 3, 2010
My inspiration for this card came from AngelNorth. I wanted to make a simple but elegant engagement card for a friend who recently became engaged. She is a lovely girl who used to go to our church. Her mother still does and is a dear friend of mine so I plied her with questions regarding wedding plans. Her daughter does not want a big production wedding, she found the recent wedding show she attended absolutely overwhelming! I decide a little bit of nature and a touch of gold and black might be the right approach on a card.
To create the gold rectangle I stamped the stamp pad directly on the card stock and the black image over the top. A couple of mattes and a sentiment and it was done. The One Stop Craft Challenge blog is celebrating its 100th challenge and the theme is “Congratulations” so I’m joining in.
