Love Arrangement Wedding

Saturday I got a new die in the mail and so I decided today I would work up a card for a wedding using that die cut. I went with the colors of Gina K. Designs Edible Eggplant and Lovely Lavender card stocks along with white for this card. I also used Edible Eggplant dye ink to stamp the sentiment which is an old one I purchased years ago and is designed by Annette Allen Watkins and put out by Stampworks.



The die is called "Love Arrangement" DN-1136 and is from Die-Namites. I had ordered this in January and it arrived on Valentine's Day so I decided it would not work this year for a valentine so I went with a wedding theme. Oh, and the extra hearts along the edges are the ones that fell out of the die cut. I figured I might as well use them too!

I punched out a heart shape with a Marvy Uchida Punch from the Lovely Lavender card stock and placed it behind the die design. Over this I added my ribbon. In order to get the ribbon to match I took Copic Marker BV08 Blue Violet which matched the Edible Eggplant fairly well and colored along the edges of it. I also used the marker to color the little gem hearts and the gem in the center of the flower.

Below is the photo of the die I used on this card.


And here is the sketch which I loosely interpreted for my card design. My card is more of a flip of the sketch below. Hopefully, this will still be acceptable.



I am entering this into the challenge at the Die-Namites blog for February which requires one to use hearts on their entry and the sketch design.

Thanks again for checking out my blog post and I hope your week will be a wonderful one.

God bless,
Verna
