A Family Sign and a Card


The Frankfords family sign

Our family had several friends get married recently and this is one of the gifts I made.  I have been admiring signs for so long I thought I would give it a try.  I had so much fun making this, I know I am going to be making many more.   


I made their wedding card very simple.  I started with a card base of Cryogen White cardstock.  Cryogen White is a white shimmer paper, it has just the right amount of shimmer…and I love it.  I stamped the Background Basics: Houndstooth in Encore Silver.  Check out that shimmer!  I then stamped Congrats from Think Big Favorites #5 in Hawaiian Shores ink.  I added three gems that I colored with an R05 Copic marker to the bottom left hand side.


On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Verve’s Anniversary Birds stamp set in Melon Berry ink and the flourish from PTI’s Fancy Flourishes in Hawaiian Shores ink.  I love the way that flourish mimics the font on the front of the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  Have a blessed day!
