Hello everyone! YIPPEE - It's time for another "Throwback Thursday Challenge" with My Creative Time. This time the challenge guidelines are easy: Make a project of your choice, using your Cricut and any older cartridge!
I made a pretty wedding card for some friends of my husband who are getting married this weekend.
All of the papers for this card are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Linen Closet paper pack. This is such a pretty collection. I've been eyeing it for awhile and finally gave in this past weekend when I had a bonus 25% off coupon even on sale items!!! Score!!!! That means I got the pack for 65% off!!! How can you beat that?!?
The centerpiece is the beautiful calendar since I wanted to highlight their upcoming wedding date. I used the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Die and the Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set. The ink is Sepia ~ Ranger Archival Ink. **If I had to recommend one MCT stamp set to get ~ it would be this beautiful calendar set. I think it's just gorgeous!!!
In the upper right corner of the card, I used the My Creative Time ~ Stitched Oval Die along with the "Congratulations" sentiment from the My Creative Time ~ Gift Card Sentiments stamp set. The ink is Sepia ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
All of the beautiful flowers are cut with the Mother's Day Bouquet ~ Cricut cartridge. For the white flowers, I stamped them with the script background stamp from the My Creative Time ~ Script Type Backgrounds stamp set. Once again, the ink is Sepia ~ Ranger Archival Ink. In the center of each flower, I also added some pearls and a pretty little heart gem - all of which are from Recollections. In the flower on the right, I also added a touch of Celebrate It ~ Wedding Collection "tull-eeeee" as Emma would say. hee hee And I inked some of the flower petal edges with a Color Box ~ Chestnut Roan ink.
**A quick little tip - I always bend and curl up the petals in flowers. It gives them so much more dimension and they look so much more realistic and beautiful too. If you've never tried it - for flowers this small, I usually use the tip of my Gypsy stylus. And for larger flowers, I use the body of one of my Zig Writer pens.
Well my friends, that's it for today. Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the other Design Team Members have created. Have a great day everyone! I will see you all again soon.
