Happy Saturday, peeps! I have two easy cards for you today...I spent some time in my stamp room today (instead of doing chores, I am such a procraftinator!), and the first one is for Dana and Wayne's first anniversary, which is tomorrow:
Blessedly, the weather last year was very cooperative; if they had gotten married this year, they would have needed umbrellas just like Kelly! I used the FMS sketch for this one by Jen, it's really clean and simple, which was perfect for what I wanted:
Dana likes purple, so I used some Highland Heather as my card base and layered it with some pretty heart-embellished SU vellum from several years ago. I heat-embossed a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet and added some gold diecuts:
Sadly, my second card is for a close family/church friend who has been battling health issues for several years; he came home from the hospital last night and passed away early this morning. We know it is a blessing, as he was in a lot of pain, but we still miss him! The sketch from Sketch Saturday gave me a chance to use some pretty papers from Share What You Love:
And here's the sketch:
I already had a Mint Macaron card base cut and scored, so I layered my DSP on a Petal Pink mat and adhered them. The beautiful velvet ribbon from the Holiday Mini matched nicely, and I colored a pearl with a Light Pumpkin Pie Blend marker and adhered it for just a little extra something:
My sentiments, inside and out, are from Flourishing Phrases, stamped in Soft Suede, and I added some leaves from Perennial Birthday, stamped in Soft Sea Foam:
Hope you have a blessed day, thanks for popping in! Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge too!
