Pretty as a Picture Card

It's that time of year again, Wedding Season! June is such a popular month for weddings that I've been asked by at least 4 friends to make them wedding or bridal shower cards. Since I just took a Copic Certification Class I thought I would try out my markers with this!

The stamp is Cheeky Beauty from The Greeting Farm. I used Gina K Pure Luxury and Momento Ink for this one. I like the Gina K paper, but might want to switch to something a little cheap if I'm going to do this a lot. The frame is from the Cricut Jasmine font cartridge, and the roses are from Prima, which happens to be my favorite flower company.  I like that it looks like a charm!
Here's a closer view of her. I'm still working on my coloring technique, but the class certainly helped. Blending and shadow are tough to master. I used some ribbon that I picked up at Pinecone Press a few months ago and the paper is from 7gypsys. I entered this card into the Paper Sundaes Challenge, Vintage or Shabby Chic. I think this qualifies for both!

 Almost forgot! These are the markers that I used to color in the image.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Great coloring. Love the background paper and the distressed edges. Gorgeous Card!

  2. Super cute. I wish I knew how to use these markers. I cannot get it to look right..I guess practice makes perfect. Thats if I can keep my patience. LOL!
