Goin' to the Chapel

German Phrase of the Day: Die Hochzeit ist heute Wochenende. = The wedding is this weekend. One of Julia's kindergarten teachers is getting married this weekend, and the chidren at school have prepared a song to sing for her at the I'll get to see a German wedding. I'm quite exctied. I haven't made her gift yet (better get crackin'!) but I did make this card for another friend to give her.

Lisa asked me once again to make a card (and a few other projects) for her. She loves the Bellas, and since Daggi is just so cute, I agreed that Bella was perfect. Lisa wanted mostly white, with a touch of green. I stamped Hitched a Fella Bella onto Stamper's Select White from PTI with Brilliance Black ink, then colored the image with my aquapainter and watercolor crayons. He has a celery tie, and she has a celery sash. The roses are colored with Rose Red. For some sparkle, I added a star shaped rhinestone to her tiarra, and some spica clear glitter pen to her eyelashes.

For the background, I wanted to keep it white, but I wanted some texture. The card is 5.25" square, and I knew I couldn't cuddlebug a 5" square piece at once, so I decided I'd have to use Swiss Dots, so I could do part of it, then line up the folder to emboss the rest. I was amazed at how well that turned out! to get to work on her stationary set...and a few other projects before I'm away from my craft room (and computer) for 3 days in hospital.
