A Custom Creation: Bluesy Love Cards

I've doubled up love cards for this post, both in shades of blue.

The first is an icy, wintry, elegant wedding card that went over to Arts Plus Gallery a little while back.

It's really a pretty simple card.  I stamped Hero Arts Large Fabric Design background in blue on a white base.  Added a sheer blue bow, topped with a silver tassel (from an old bookmark-making kit I received) and a glorious bejeweled button.

...and then, some chipboard letters in silver.  Done!

In November 2013, I posted THIS custom engagement card.  And even though I am not one to duplicate cards, I did love it so much that I created a similar one for the shop.

I changed the color of the cardstock to a soft blue instead of purple, and added a sentiment this time.  For some reason, this card was easier to photograph and photo-edit than the previous, purple version.  My camera has a hard time with reds and purples.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Beautiful cards in lovely colors. I love the bling and tassel on the first one.

Colleen, you must have gotten a case of craft-itis. You have really been putting out the cards in the last day or so.
