If you remember a wedding card post I did back in August you may remember that I mentioned I had created two cards, one for the bride and groom and one for the parents of the groom. Well here I am several weeks later finally posting the card for the grooms parents.
The card base is 5" x 7" made from Baja Breeze textured cardstock. I added a layer of Crumb Cake and another layer of Baja Breeze textured, both with torn edges.
On the top Baja Breeze layer I stamped the large flower from the two step Level 2 hostess set Fast & Fabulous. Both steps were stamped using the Baja Breeze ink. I also stamped my sentiment Congratulations from the SAB set Well Scripted in Baja Breeze ink.
I wanted a little Victorian flair, so I added some Victoria Crochet Trim to my card front but rather than laying it flat I created some 'waves' in the trim. Also to enhance the trim I added an Antique Brad. I put this through my top layers of cardstock before adhering these layers to my card front.
This card took me forever to make for some reason. I just wanted it to be perfect but not overdone. I am very happy with the results.
Thanks for stopping by.
