Uptown Couple

I was so psyched to spend some time in my craft room over the long weekend.  First up is a card using the image Uptown Couple Emily and Ryan under the umbrella.  This is going to my future daughter-in-law!  Yay, our son proposed on July 4th and she said yes!  We are thrilled.

I tried something a little out of the box for me, I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper and then cut around the umbrella so that it actually became a covering for the image below.  I liked the way it came out and I liked how it let me use the design paper, Simple Stories Fabulous, behind it as a frame - especially with the love birds hanging out. 


Coloring was done with copics, embellishments are felt flowers made with MFT dies and topped with buttons.  The sentiment is computer generated.  Finished card size is 6 1/2 x 5.

Congratulations Justin and Cait!  Can't wait for the celebration!
