June Bride

Traditionally, June has always been known as the wedding month (although I recently read that December has become the most popular month for weddings). My parents had a June wedding, and I had a December one, so guess we had both months covered (smile).

This week, our challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle ( is -- hum, have you guessed yet? Yuppers, make a Wedding Card! Our sponsor for this week's challenge is a returning sponsor, Whoopsie Daisy! Linnie creates delightful sheets of hand-drawn images, with each sheet containing 4 images! And there are so many to choose from! The randomly drawn winner at the end of the week will receive two sheets (8 images) from the many designs Whoopsie Daisy has to offer. All you have to do is create a wedding card, enter it in the CCC challenge and link your blog/card using the "You are Next" link at the bottom of the challenge information. If nothing else, stop by CCC and see the lovely inspiration provided by our design team members!

Speaking of inspiration, here is my DT card for this week's challenge (bet you were beginning to wonder, eh?)

I printed the digital image onto white card and coloured the hair, bouquet and shadowing on her white dress using Copic markers. I then fussy cut the image and attached a piece of netting which I gathered up on one end to form a veil. I also lightly added Stickles Star Dust on the bodice of the dress for slight bling and sparkle.

I then cut a 5.5 x 5.5" white card base. On top of the based, I adhered a piece of decorative card from a DCWV pad called "The Luxury Stack." The pad was 8 x 8", so I did trim it to fit my card base. With one of the pieces that I cut from the DP, I created a strip using a Martha Stewart border punch. (At the time I bought most of my punches, I did not think about keeping the name of the punch designs. My crystal ball was not working at the time (grin), and I did not realize I'd be sharing information as to how I made my cards.) Anyhoo, across the strip that I punched, I added a piece of white lace. (This is that wonderful self-sticking lace that cuts down on bulk as well as making it a delight to adhere -- no more messy glue, tape or trying to keep the lace in place. This particular one is from the "French General" collection by Jolee's Boutique.)

After adhering the lace strip, I added by bride with pop-up dots. I then added white roses and white and pink rose buds by Wild Orchid Crafts, and two large white pearls by Recollections. I don't have a sentiment on my card (you can see the "white space on the right side of the card where the sentiment will go) because I don't have a wedding stamp, and when I was ready to print off a sentiment, my computer printer informed me I was out of ink (hate when that happens and I don't have a refill readily at hand; that has now been recified, but not before I had to turn in my card for the challenge posting). So, that's my DT card for this week's challenge (warts and all - grin).

Enjoy - will see you later in the craft room!
