Made For Each Other Redux

Good Morning!

I had a hard time coming up with a card today for some reason.  I really struggled with what I wanted to do.  Do you ever have an idea in your head and then have a hard time putting it into practice?  That was me today!  ANYWAY, here is my card:

An Asian Touch

Join our February challenge!

Welcome Back! It's Laury again from justlaury at Today's theme is Wedding Invitation. This is a simple card but I love the lacy feel.

The dahlia design comes from Paper Source's Mum Outline Flo no. 871485. I stamped the design on a light piece of paper using black ink. I then took a picture of it and brought it into Make-The-Cut design software to create vector cutlines. I had to clean it up a bit but not much. I split the design in half and attached it to a rectangle. The card is cut from cover stock. I think that a velour paper would make an awesome cover.

Another variation for this card would be to use a simple rectangle for the invite and then use the cut piece for the RSVP and information part of the invite. The card could also be closed with a ribbon or a strip of handmade Japanese paper. A note, if you do use a specialty paper, be sure to match your other papers to it.

 So, consider your stamp collection, do you have any that could be turned into cut files? If you plan to sell the cards or designs, then make sure you understand the copyright and licensing  issues pertaining to the stamp.

Well that is all for today, do stop by tomorrow for more inspiration.

Until next time,

Wedding Wrap

I created this file to cut a delicate wrap for an invitation. The yellow/cream is a paper insert that the invitation for a Wedding could be printed on. Some call this a wrap and some call it a sleeve. Either way it is a delicate touch to add around the wedding invitation. This file was posted as a freebie on my blog. It may still be available for a short time. Here is the link it was posted at on my blog. If you do use it and post anywhere, please add the HashTag #VDBC so I can see what you've created.

Hope you Enjoy!

Wedding with that handmade touch

Darla back again today with a wedding card for you.

Since the front of this is not really a wedding image but instead an image hand picked by the bride this card could easily be made into any occasion.

A custom made by me stamp made these truly unique and one of a kind.

Please go to my blog here for more details on how this was made.

St. Patrick's Day Knot

Join our February challenge!
Welcome Back! It's Laury from Justlaury again. Today I am featuring another one of my new knotty files. This one is perfect for St. Patrick's Day. This card is simple but can be jazzed up with special paper or a little glitter. I really do like knotwork. This will probably be the last knotwork card for a bit but maybe and Easter Cross could make an appearance at some point.

Hope you are inspired to try something new. Please check back tomorrow for a new card!

Enjoy and keep crafting,

Save That Date Invitation Calendar Card

Welcome Back! Today's card is a Save the Date. The theme is invitations. I am currently working on a new wedding invitation that I am honored to have been asked to design. I will post that at a later date as it is still in the works.

This month I have been working on Celtic Knotwork. I have a life long fascination with knots from the time a was little.

The first card is the blog card featuring a josephine/love knot around the edges and a small calendar that is bound with padding/book compound (available from Amazon) to allow easy removal of each month.

You have to excuse the colors. What I really want to highlight is the attached calendar. You could use the actual wedding date month or as I have done include an entire calendar so that the piece can be used as a small desk calendar. Also instead of days of the month another idea would be to use the number of days until the wedding.....

If you are interested learning more about this card and seeing other knotwork cards, then jump on over to my blog.

I hope I have inspired you to try something new. A card can be more than a card it can be something useful. Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for more inspiration! Until next time.
