Best Wishes

When I found out that I was the winner of CropStop's Linky Party #39, I was thrilled.  It's always fun to win, even if it's just for fun.  But, not two days after my win, I received some beautiful embossing folders from them and an email asking me if I would like to be a guest designer on their blog! I'm very honored to be sharing my card with the gang at CropStop and all of you!

What I Used to Make my Card:
Square White Card, 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
White Glitter Card
White Pearlescent Card
Sue Wilson Background Butterfly Frame, #CED-7105 {find all the Sue Wilson dies here}
My Sentiments Exactly! Best Wishes, from Wedding, #M106 {this stamp set will work just fine}
VersaMark Ink Pad {for the embossing}
Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder {Stampendous makes a nice one}
Colorbox Petal Point - Alchemy {any silver ink will work}
Dimensional Dots

You can see the sparkle a bit better here
I recently found out that an old friend was getting married, and while they are just doing a quickie ceremony at their local town hall, it inspired me to create a wedding card.  See, at my age, most folks are already married, or on their second and third marriages, so there isn't much call for wedding cards.  Which is why I purposely didn't put anything on the card about weddings or marriage, just a good old "Best Wishes" works for me.  I don't even know if I will send this card to him because he couldn't even give me a wedding date; I suppose I could always send it after.

Another Peek
I wanted the card to be elegant and sophisticated but still have the shine, glitter, and a taste of festivity.  I started the card by cutting the large background die and the top portion out of white shimmer card.  I glued the frame onto the square card.  Then I embossed the sentiment in the center of the top piece.  Next, I cut a square of white glitter card to go under the top of the card, attached the two pieces together, and used dimensional dots to attach that to the card.  That was really all there was to it.  I think it looks almost as good as a store bought card!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are entering the CropStop challenge as much as you can - the only product requirement is that you use a brand of die that they carry, and you can only enter five {5} times per challenge - that's it!  I hope to see YOU as the next Guest Designer!  Fondly, Christi
