Stampin'Up! Thoroughly Modern ~ Wedding

I wish I knew someone getting married. I so enjoyed putting this card together. I combined two challenges today when I created this card, Mojo Monday and Clean & Simple challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.


Participating in challenges is a great way to improve your skills. You don't need to be a demonstrator to join any of the challenges that I participate in. You just need to be able to take a picture, put it on your computer, and access the internet. Most of us can do that these days with all the digital cameras and software. If you'd like to try a challenge and need some help or encouragement, contact me. I'll be happy to walk you through it.

For this card I combined Thoroughly Moders DSP, Bermuda Breeze, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, and Vellum. I like the look of the vellum. The ink bled a bit but I used Classic ink and Craft ink might have worked better.
HINT: When I cut the flowers I put a shim under the die. I had had trouble getting the daisies cut all the way through. This solved my problem. The shims come with some of the dies and with the Crease pads.

If you would like to recreate this card see the recipe below. If you need supplies, contact me or order on-line, I'm happy to help.



God Bless,

Recipe:

Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Thoroughly Modern DSP, Whisper White card stock, Bermuda Breeze Textured card stock, Sahara Sand card stock, and Vellum

Now thats really pretty! what are the flowers made from? they look soooo pretty! I have been trying to make my own flowers and I have used lots of different household items including plastic milk bottles :0)

The flowers were made using the BigZ Daisies 2 Die, Sahara Sand card stock, and Vellum card stock. I only used the middle and small sized flowers and layered them three deep.
