How I ended up at Just Judy Designs, I don't know. I think it was through a link from another link from a blog I was looking at from a link I was on from another blog! Doesn't matter, what matters is, I was there and I found this fun card (sort of) there. I say "sort of" because I changed a few little things on it. You can see Judy's card here.
I used the new "Glimmer Paper" Assortment Pack from the Sale a Brations book. It's one of the new items they added half way through the sale. I've seen a few cards made using it and I had to copy them. Though I can't find them now but I did find this one. It's such a pretty wedding card. I changed the decorative paper strip and I didn't add a bow, I added a twist of ribbon. Oh and my ribbon is a different color from Judy's. I think the color of my cardstock may be different too.
For my card I used a folded half sheet of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. Then I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. I added a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of decorative paper. Mine is from the "Falling in Love" 12" x 12" pack. I taped it to the left side of the Whisper White cardstock, but I did NOT tape all the edges. I only taped half way across the top and bottom and all of the left side. I left the right side open because the flower piece has a tab that I slipped under the decorative paper. I used my favorite gluing method to get the glue to the back of the lacy flowers. I take a piece of waxed paper a bit larger than the piece that needs gluing. Then I pour some white glue onto the waxed paper. I fold the paper in half and take my bone folder and smooth out the glue. I make sure it's covered enough so when I set my piece on top of it, it's all covered. Once my piece is sitting on top of the glue, I take another piece of waxed paper and set it on top. I press the piece into the glue. I remove the top piece of waxed paper and toss it. Then I take the piece and slightly peel it back and grab an edge and remove it from the waxed paper. I set it in place on my cardstock and I press it down so it sticks.
Next I took my ribbon and taped the edges to the back of the card. I took a 5" piece and made a loop. I taped the loop with snail tape so it stayed together and I set it aside.
I took a 1-1/4" piece of Vellum cardstock and cut it 4-1/4" long. Then I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock (scrap pieces work well here) and I cut it 1" x 2-5/8". I stamped the "Wedding Wishes" from the "Rose Wonder" set on it using Soft Suede ink. Then I taped that piece to the vellum. But before I taped it, I slid the vellum under the ribbon and checked out how far the edge was from the Whisper White piece. You don't want the word piece all the way to the end. Give it some room. Once I taped the words in place, I added tape to the back of the Vellum and set it in place under the ribbon. I did add a glue dot to the ribbon, above the word piece. The gap was too much to leave alone.
And finally I added that twisted piece of ribbon. I taped the back with snail, only in the middle and I slid it under the long ribbon. I didn't add tape or a glue dot to the top of the ribbon but now that I look at my card, I am going to add it once I'm done posting this. The twisted ribbon makes it pop up a bit more than I like.
I REALLY like how this card turned out. I knew I was going to like it a lot, so I made two of them! One to use and one to keep or sell. It was a fun card to make too. I LOVE this new glitter paper. I hope that Stampin' Up! comes up with some other new glitter paper colors in the June catalog.
Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
