We have a wedding to go in early November and the wedding colors are Fall colors. At first I thought that this colors might be a bit dark for a wedding card, but in the end I like the way it came out.
Now the tricky part was getting the hearts to cut out exactly around the names. I used the "hinge" method. I set up the hearts in my Gypsy then cut them from just plain white card stock, then took the hearts off the mat but left the rest on the mat and placed a piece of tape across the top.
Then I lifted that piece off the mat like a hinge leaving it attached at the top and slipped my printed piece of paper under the template to line up the printed names under the cut out hearts. You can see my arrows of which way I had to move each heart to get them lined up.
Stuck my printed piece to the mat, removed the template (hinged piece) and loaded it in my Cricut to cut. I think I made it a bit harder on myself by trying to cut out both name hearts at the same time instead of doing them individually.
I hope this makes sense. There is a video out there on You Tube on how to do this. I am not too good at tutorials but I am trying
I then place pearls alternating small and tiny pearls around the hearts, cranberry colored on hers and brown on his. The "Wedding Wishes" is stamped and heat embossed in gold. I still have one more card to make for this wedding (for my Mom) so hope to get that posted in the next couple of days.
Thanks for taking time to spot by my blog. I would love it if you left me a comment.
