Love & Laughter

Good Morning Friends! 

I had a ball yesterday afternoon making this quick card.  Yes, it went together in about 15 minutes!  I took part in a chat and challenge over on Sudsol. Sudsol is a demonstrator only forum that has chats, challenges, great artwork sharing and more. 

I came into the room kind of late. 45 minutes late, and I DID have my card made within time.  :)  Not too shabby! 

So how about some details?

Base: 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" scored in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: whisper white 4" square
Layer 3:  3 7/8"  square Mocha Morning Specialty Paper (black flocked pattern)
Layer 4: 1 1/2" whisper white, with the eyelet border punch
Layer 5: the same pattern of dsp flipped 1" x 4 1/4"
Layer 6: Stamped "i do" image from the Love and Laughter Stamp Set
Layer 7: Congratulations banner from the same set.  The rose red flowers come from the bitty shapes punch pack.  I used a mat pack to push a hole in the middle then I added our silver mini brads.  they are so delicate to work with!  I love how they dress up this wedding card!

I used a retired slot punch to punch a hole in the top of my card to make it easy to run my 5/8" satin ribbon through and tie a bow. 

Hard to imagine that it went together in 15 minutes, but that my friends is the power of a cool sketch!  This card is going to be a wonderful card to give to my husbands cousin who is getting married in two weeks.  Check!, one less thing is always good! 

Thanks for stopping by today, and if you love what you see, please leave me a message.  If you don't have a demonstrator and would like to place an order, you may do so here!  Thanks for popping by!

{hugs to you}

I love this card, it's going into my CASE file right this minute. My daughter is a maid of honor in a July wedding and we are now coming up with shower and wedding invitations. I just got this set yesterday, yahoo! Love your work.
