Wedded Bliss

Tonight, or this morning, whichever it may be wherever you are, I bring you a card of wedded bliss.  So remember, way back when, earlier this summer when I posted a wedding album for my friend?  Well, I finally finished the card for it. I slow this summer or what?  Must be the intense heat of summer.  I managed to weave back through my leftovers and found some scraps from the Cappella Album Kit.  Since I had the Loving Thoughts JustRite stamp set handy, I married the two together for quite a nice coupling, I think.

The photo on the card is a picture of their rings and I had wanted to use this in the album but ran out of pages.  Who here has ever run into that problem?  Well wouldn't you know, the lovely team over at the JustRite blog challenged everyone to make a card with a photo on it (Challenge #28).  Perfect timing, I say.

To create this shape card, you need cardstock (folded in half) and a set of the large scalloped Nestabilities.  First, place the largest nestability die over the folded cardstock, leaving the top edge off the folded seam, as seen in the photo below.  After running it through your die cut machine, you now have a folded scalloped card for your base.  Next, cut out a full scalloped circle, embellish it and then glue it down to the base. 

Paper: Patterned Paper (Capella Album Kit)
Stamp: JustRite Stamps - Loving Thoughts Set

Flowers:  Prima

Ink: Distress Inks by Ranger (Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain)
Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities (Large Scallop Circle, Large Label), Quickutz Flourish
