Ladies Card Ministry- Card #1- Happy Big Day!
I hope all of you are having a wonderful week so far!! I wanted to take the time to share a few cards that we created at our Ladies Ministry Card Making event this past weekend. Our ministry was for primarily for the ladies of our church to have a chance to fellowship and have fun creating cards but it could easily be modified to a card making ministry for outreach as well. I am going to post the cards in separate posts so it will be easier to link from other galleries :-)
To create the Happy Big Day Card:
Ink the script background from Notable Notions using Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Emboss using the Big Shot™ with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions™ Folder and mount this background onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock.
Using the Big Shot™ with the Dress Up Framelits™ to cut a dress from Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper (I used a piece 4” wide by 3 ½” long) and cut a horizontal strip from the scrap of this piece once the dress is cut out.
Cut the horizontal strip in half (the dress will cover up the cut) and flip over to the opposite side, layer onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock (we used scrap strips of Island Indigo at the top and bottom of DSP pieces versus a solid piece of cardstock).
Layer this horizontal strip onto the card along with the sentiment (stamped from Chalk Talk with Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut with the Chalk Talk Framelits™).
Add the ribbon to the dress (I used retired Organdy Ribbon) and attach the dress using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Punch the flower from Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the Pansy Punch, the center from Whisper White using the ¾” Circle Punch and the leaves from Island Indigo using the Bird Builder Punch.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Perfect Polka Dots folder to emboss the flower and flower center. Add the leaves to the back using Mini Glue dots and adhere to the card.
Punch the little flower from Island Indigo cardstock using the scallop punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack- add to the bow using Mini Glue Dots and adhere the Rhinestone in the center- a girl has to have diamonds- right- lol!!?
