This particular card was made for a friend who loved the "I Do" card I made last week. Actually this friend is one of the ladies I met a few years ago while we were both planning our weddings, which happened to be in the same month. She has a bridal shower coming up and asked if I could make a bridal shower card. My answer? "Why of course!" Me make a card? I sure can! It's one of the things I love to do aside from eating and reading.
For this card I again used SVG Cuts' Kate's Silhouettes. I love those super cute silhouettes. I am looking for reasons to use them any time I can so of course I jumped on the opportunity when asked for a bridal shower card! I had the perfect idea for it. I actually made it compliment the style of the "I Do" card.
|Man proposing on one knee|
|"She said yes"|
In order to add contrast I cut the woman's dress out of blue and white polka dot paper. At first I was concerned that it wouldn't match but then I realized that's exactly what I wanted!
I used pop up squares to make the two silhouette figures 3D.
As for the sentiment, once again I don't have a stamp that says "She said yes" so I had to print it out. I inked the edges and it is slightly popping off the page. I cut a pop up square in half and glued the bottom so it wasn't as high up as the silhouettes.
Maybe one day when I get the Silhouette SD I won't have to print my sentiments out. Shhh, don't tell anyone but my husband actually gave me the go-ahead to buy it! He actually has an ulterior motive on this decision. Since it has print and cut abilities it can cut his pepakura. It's a form of papercrafting as well. He makes 3D things out of paper. He's made a helmet and a gun so far. It's actually really cool. He plans to take it a step further though. With the SIlhouette he won't have to sit and cut each piece by hand. Ha, I didn't even realize he was a papercrafter too....even before I was!
