When I make wedding cards, kraft cardstock is definitely not the first paper that comes to mind, but I thought I should give it a try to see what I could come up with.
Once embossed, I colored it with ProMarkers, being careful to stay within my white lines. I've found that alcohol markers can color the embossing if I'm not careful.
I think you can see in this photo that I used a couple of different markers on each part of the image, hoping it added a little shading and depth.
My paper lace that runs beneath my ribbon was made with the "border stitch lace" die by Marianne Designs. I love this little lace die as I think it looks like it could be tatted lace.
Life has been getting in the way of crafting lately. My two little Concord grape vines in the back yard have decided to produce grapes in such abundance that I have to tend to them every day for a while, picking, cleaning, cooking, mashing, straining and canning jar after jar of grape jelly. I also plan to freeze some of the juice and try my hand at some homemade grape juice. Wonder what the juice would taste like were it to ferment a bit... Hmmmm.... Concord grape wine, anyone?
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
