Today the DT is featuring Big Day Essentials and Big Day Additions. These are a wonderful set of sentiments, perfect for that big day. I will say for the record, I am glad my "big day" is behind me. :) Although this set would certainly have made my invites and my thank you notes so much prettier!
So let's go ahead and get started!
Thank You Chevron Card
Yes, that's glitter. Lots and lots of glitter.My husband spends his summers umpiring HS baseball.
When unsupervised, I decide to do stupid crafty things
(His words, not mine)
I think it's quite brilliant actually...
I also asked my husband for a protractor.
He told me I was probably the only person in the world who would use a protractor to make a chevron pattern.
I think he's wrong... surely someone else has asked for a protractor for crafty reasons...
Protractors are not just pieces of plastic we bought because it was on our 4th grade supply list... right?
He also told me he wouldn't lend me his for fear of glitter.
Ok, actually we couldn't figure out which box the protractor would be in...
So back to my glittery paper.
I didn't have anything with a chevron pattern.
After thinking about this, I realized I had a lot of glitter.
In lots of fun colors.
And glitter is a wonderful thing.
So I took some adhesive paper, adhered it to some scrap paper, scored a chevron pattern.
And then just like those sand art pieces of art I used to love as a child, I peeled off selective pieces of the adhesive backing and then applied glitter.
Lovely lovely glitter!
Thank You Card
Simple and sweet.
The first thing I did was stamp the sentiment. Then I drew the frame to create a fun little border.
And then punched the stars. Don't try to do it the other way. It's so much harder to punch the stars and then try to draw a border. Not that I would know...
And then I backed the stars with some patterned paper.
Best Wishes Lace Card
I stamped a pretty doily image from Dainty Doilies - Small. And then embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder. Added a little scoring detail and there you go!
This would make a lovely thank you card as well. Just modify that sentiment. :)
Best Wishes Cake Card
Ok, I'm off to go shower again... I'm still covered in glitter. Despite showering twice already today.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by everyone's fabulous creations!
