Waltzingmouse Stamps - February Release Day 1!

Hello friends and welcome to the first of three days of previews for the February release at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  I am so excited about this stamp set and dies and know you will love them as well!

For my first project I made a wedding card as we had some very close friends get married this past weekend and had a wonderful time celebrating with them on Saturday night.  It was our first official "date night" since Amelia was born and we really enjoyed ourselves!  Grandma and Grandpa loved babysitting, too, so it was a win/win!  :)  Anyway, I tried something new and used some adhesive-backed fabric for the front of the card.  It was really easy to cut but I think I wouldn't remove the backing next time and just glue it on the card base.  Once the backing was off, the fabric shifted and bubbled and it was a challenge to get it on the card!  Once it was on (*phew*), I stamped it with the large wreath die from Gift Card It in silver ink and stamped a sentiment from the set as well as the little hearts.
I cut the gift card holder from the Gift Card It die set from a piece of coordinating fabric and slipped in a gift card.  I finished decking out the inside of the card with the wreath stamp and some metal buttons. I really like how this turned out!

Thanks so much for visiting and I will see you back here tomorrow!  Here are the other DT members participating today -

  11. I'm glad you tried something new with the fabric paper - next time will be easier. Your card is so romantic looking with the vintage theme and soft colors. The soft grey blue frame is so pretty and shows how well this will work with all sorts of different papers and patterns!
