Let's Celebrate!

Life is about celebrating and today Canada is doing just that. Happy Canada Day!! Enjoy! In life there are many things to celebrate and weddings are one of those special what better way to get back on track than celebrating a friend's wedding with this little card.

I still cannot get over the intricate, clean cuts my Silhouette Cameo is giving me...there are just so many good things about it...can you guess I am loving it when I do get a chance to play? lol  Pity this picture doesn't do the card justice, but it truly is remarkable how clean cut and lovely lacy pattern. Add a mint ribbon and Le Voila! Sweetness tied with a bow ;)

Typed up Mr. & Mrs. on mint colored cardstock, and with the Silhouette studio program, centered my scallop over the Mr. & Mrs. and cut! Could it be any easier? Added a lacy doily cut out and layered it over the mint scallop, naturally, what would a project be without a little embossing? so out came my little embosser (Sizzix Embossing Boutique) and then glued it all together, four mint pearls finish it up nicely.

Printed up the sentiment 'Today's your special day, when you become man and wife, so we send you love and blessings for along and happy life' on matching mint colored paper, edged it with a scalloped white edging. I also glued mint paper over the three triangle cut outs so the design would stand out.

This is the card straight off the Silhouette cutting can do so much with this design ~ white on white would be wonderful too.

No matter what machine you have and love, it's fantastic having the ability to cut and do sooo much more...and easy is always a welcome in this crafting corner.

Hope you celebrating life wherever you may be, oooh it feels soooo good to be back in my little corner ;)

Chow for now, and thanks for stopping by.
