Beachy Wedding

Hello there!


I had a little bit of time this past weekend to photo-edit some cards from June. LOL  And here's one!


It's another cluster card, done in a beachy style for some happy couple, somewhere. :-) I looked in my box of already-stamped-and-colored images, and thought these nautical cuties would be pleased to get together with one another.


It's my favorite way to make a card when I'm pinched for time: look on my craft desk at the inevitable little piles all around me, and challenge myself to make something good out of assorted pieces.  I've honed the formula, too:  

  • Stamped images (or stickers) 
  • Patterned paper or embossed cardstock (or both)  
  • Little embellishments such as pearls/gems, or sequins
  • Fabric (in the form of ribbon, or a smidge of burlap,etc.)
  • Maybe a sentiment; depends on how much room is left.

I like my cards to be touchable, and have a bit of texture, and possibly a bit of bling. :-)  Today's card certainly fits the bill!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Oh, yes, this is just wonderful! I love the little mix of beachy items you arranged on the pretty designer paper. It's always nice to use up those leftover parts, too. It turned out great!
