Here’s this week’s challenge! And as the readers of my blog are just as new to this challenge as I am I’ve included the sketch. And this is how it works: the sketch is posted and gives you a basic idea of what your card should look like – which elements it should include. I’ve found this to be a rather complicated one as there are so many overlapping layers and again I think I stuck too close to the sketch but anyway.
I had a friend over for a weekend of watching the Olympics at night (due to the different time zone we get to see it all in prime time :-)) and as we were out taking a walk in the snow during the day we got into talking about how hard it is to find nice wedding cards in stores. I guess it’s a matter of taste but still: we agreed that most are just too kitschy and way overpriced. That stuck with me somehow so I decided to make a wedding card! The hearts need no explanation but there’s a lot of green… that’s because an actual wedding is called a green wedding here – don’t ask me why, I guess it’s got something to do with green being fresh and also the color of hope (for a good life together?). Here’s the result:
Cardstock: Clairefontaine Pollen
Papers: all kinds of leftovers of unknown origin
Hearts: cut out of wrapping paper of unknown origin
Brad and greeting: no-name products
