Mr. and Mrs.


ETA: If you were here earlier, you may have seen a *slightly* different card. While I was making it, I knew it needed *something* else, but couldn't figure it out until I was uploading the photos. I knew exactly what it needed, so I made a whole new card! LOL!
I apologize for my tardiness! There weren't enough hours in the day yesterday for me to get to my SFYTT card, so here it is! I slept in and then set out to get it done! I love this week's sketch! Isn't it fun? I can see myself using this one again and again! I decided that my stash was in need of a wedding card and this paper seemed perfect. While I was making it, all I could think of was "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" which is true of this card. Something old is my "Fundamental Phrases" stamp set and hardware; Something new is my paper and ribbon; something borrowed is this fab sketch from Jen; and something blue...the paper, ink and cardstock.

Even though I am late and felt rushed, I had a lot of fun making this card. I wanted so badly to sponge the edges, but didn't feel it was appropriate for a wedding card. So....I resisted! The Mr. and Mrs. sentiment *barely* fit into that darn hardware. I was determined to use it, though. It looks better in real life with a straight view rather than the angle I shot the photo.
I used my nestabilites to make the oval shape at the top and added some Martha butterfliess and pearl gems to the center. Everything else is pretty straightforward.

You won't want to miss out on the other girls creations.

So beautiful! Love all of your details, as always. The colours, papers and sentiments all add to this very special card! Really well thought out ;))

Amy Sheffer said...

Beautiful! Love the whole old/new/borrowed/blue components! Wonderful work. My Google Reader is still showing the earlier version, which is beautiful, too, but I can see how all your extras really kicked it up. This would be an awesome less/more comparison!

Very pretty card, perfect for a wedding card. Love the butterfly with pearl and the layering with nesties. The blue is a very pretty soft blue for this. Lovely card!

Such a pretty card, Kelly!!

Amy said...

You are so funny, going and making a whole new card! We are obsessive about our stamping and making it just so, aren't we?!

The colors are just gorgeous, love the yummy ribbon, and the popped oval is wonderful! I'm always so wow'ed with those butterflies, but I haven't had any luck with my butterfly punch to date...back to the stamp table!

This is so gorgeous Kelly! I really love blue and yellow together--these two are muted and pretty!

The little butterflies add the perfect touch!

Gorgeous, Kelly! Please don't tell me that I NEED the new DSP.........

Kristin said...

Lovely layers Kelly! Very soft colors that are so soothing and just perfect! I'm so curious about your first version! I agree with Amy, you should do a comparison and show us both. :)

Absolutely Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Love the vintage feel and blueness of the papers with the pearls. Makes me feel I'm there at the wedding. Any chance you can repost the earlier pic for comparison purposes. I always love to see another artists creative process in process :D

Hugs and blessings - Jean
