May I Have this Dance...

June 27, 2012

Hey there, everyone!!  Man alive- I apologize for dropping off the face of the planet in terms of my blog!  There is nothing crazy going on, other than I am crazy busy right now!  Lots of weddings, one of which was my best friend's this past weekend.  I was the Matron of Honor AND the photographer.... so you see what has been taking up my time!!  Tee hee!  I have a few weeks off from weddings (other than editing), but I have also have a bunch of stuff to get done for CHA.  So- I might still be posting pretty sporadically for a bit.

While all the craziness was going on, my first project for Prima went up on their blog!  I created a card for their wedding theme in June using a lovely mix of Prima product, and Flourishes stamps.  I love how warm and romantic this card turned out!  Here is what I created-
1. Make an A2 card from vintage cream cardstock.
2. Cut floral paper slightly smaller, sand the edges and adhere.
3. Cut the top of a small floral paper block with pinking shears, sand the edges and adhere to the top.
4. Punch a lace border to a dotted paper strip, sand the edges and adhere to the middle.
5. Stamp the bottom sentiment directly to the patterned paper.
6. Wrap seam binding and floral trim directly above the punched border.
7. Adhere the chipboard to the middle of the card.
8. Accent the lower right corner with a seam binding bow, and three fabric flowers.
9. Adhere two paper flowers to the upper left corner. 
10. Adhere the resin accents to the card front. 
11. Cut banner edges to a patterned paper strip, stamp the sentiment to it and then adhere to the circle resin accent.
12. Accent the resin and two small fabric flowers with pearls to finish.

I really love this card that I created, and I am so excited to be part of the Prima design team!!  It is one of those "dream jobs" for I am still quite giddy over it all!  I hope that you enjoyed my card tonight, and hopefully I will be back soon! 

Until later,
