Skylark Wedding Cards

Welcome back

I do apologise for missing last week’s post but I have had some family issues to deal with, and while they have settled down there is still going to be some problems to work through.

For this post I have been playing around with the last of my Skylark papers and have made some wedding cards.  I am really enjoying using a different combination of colours and papers to what I normally use.  Here I have used Lagoon and the beautiful Teal shimmer trim to create a pop of colour with the Skylark papers.

For this card I have used the pattern out of the Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 page 46 and used a cut from the Artbooking cartridge (page 48) in Lagoon cardstock for the centre panel which fitted  in well.  I love using the Perfect Fit – Frames 2 for an accent and the little wedding couple from The Happy Couple stamp set fits perfectly in the middle.  The congrats stamp is from the Cricut Artiste Collection Kudos.  And I have finished the card with a flower from the Skylark Assortments.

For this card I have again used the Quatrefoil embossing folder to add some interest to the plain cardstock.  I love how the papes from Skylark are great for cards as well as for scrapbook layouts and here I have trimmed the corner of the 12 x 12 paper to fit the card base.  I have added an extra pennant topped with a blue epoxy bubble and the sentiment is from The Happy Couple stamp set.  A very simple yet elegant card.

This card was very quick and easy with the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  I have cut the same image but for a portrait card instead and teamed it with the Lagoon striped paper from Skylark pack and the Teal shimmer trim and just placed a simple sentiment on it matted with Lagoon cardstock.  Another simple, yet elegant card.
