Big Moonlight News
The beauty of card and challenge sketches! Ideas galore, and that's half the battle. Color combos and embellishment, well thats the other half! My friend asked me to make a wedding card, and a card for a sweet 16 birthday card for a girl who loves purple. ASAP! ::OYIC:: (Oh Yes I Can)
I used the stamp set Big News from the Annual 2014-15 Catalog, and Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack, also from the Annual Catalog. Both include gold accents, because I am loving them right now! Gold goes with almost everything.
I did the birthday card first, since it was more specific. I used 2 layers of the Moonlight DSP for the background, on a Blackberry Bliss card base. The greeting is stamped on Whisper White in Blackberry ink. The sweet 16 across the middle is stamped on Hello Honey card stock, using the challenging yet amazing Alphabet Rotary Stamp. Learning curve is steep on this deceptively simple stamp, don't ask how many attempts were made to achieve one stinkin' good one! I DO love that stamp though, nothing like super custom to make me smile. And scream.
I used Thick Gold Bakers Twine, and stamped a greeting from Big News inside as well. The inside is accented with strips of the Moonlight DSP, and, while I was at it, I decorated the envelope as well. Easy Peasy!! (but for the Rotary Stamp portion! LoL) I like how this stamp set incorporates some stamps that easily go inside as complementary sentiments, but can still be used as focal points on the front of the card. Kind of versatile, love that!
The wedding card was a little harder,the sketch I used just didn't work with the stamp set as is, so I built off of it and ended up with this! Came together well after all!
The card base is Lost Lagoon, and on top of that I used a sheet of the Gold Foil, and Whisper White for the stamped layer. The sentiment is stamped in Lagoon ink. I added a strip of Moonlight DSP, and then to coordinate and add more gold, I tried a trick I saw on Instagram and punched gold circles to accent the DSP. I added the gold heart, and topped that heart with one of the really fun Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers. Love the dimension and shine!
I think so, anyhow! Hoping the Bride and Groom, and the customer agree! . :-)
