Nicola's Wedding Invites part 5

Inserts are now ready to insert, will do over the weekend, then hopefully give them to Nicola. Hope she will be happy with them.

Class Card

We first stamped the image with a Versmark ink, then sprinkled white embossing powder and heated it up. We then used distressed inks over the image to make a background. Matted and layered two pieces of matching card, added ribbon and sentiment.

Class Card

I made this a few weeks ago in our Thursday night class. Men's cards are always harder to make, but this one works well. We used a A4 piece of card folded in half, matted and layered with matching colours, used Cuttlebug (best buy ever) embossing folder attached with brads, cut three ovals from nestables one smaller than the other two. I cut the main image into three pieces (I used a 12x12 paper and also matted it first onto the card) then attached it to one of the ovals, attatch the other a little lower to see part of it. Add a sentiment.
