Altenew July Inspiration Challenge - Weddings!
As soon as I saw the challenge over at the Altenew Blog for this month, I knew I wanted to play. I thought the inspiration colours would be so perfect for a charming country wedding theme. Alas, I have no weddings to go to this summer but that didn't stop me from making a card :)
I chose to use my most very simple Altenew stamp set, Daisy ...
(Sorry for the horrible photos. The weather is not cooperating this summer at all.)
For a $5 set, Daisy packs a big wow factor. I love these stamps and how you can make a single layer card so pretty with it. I'm still obsessed with my Minc machine (and new laser copier). I downloaded a sentiment from Heidi Swapp's site and think it works so well for a casual country wedding. I stamped a simple "Happy Wedding Day" on the inside (oops, forgot to photo). It's so very difficult to capture the fabulous effect that the foiled sentiment makes (Therm-o-Foil Craft Foil in Rose Gold), but trust me it's stunning but not overdone.
