For The Happy Couple!

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!

A friend from work has recently gotten engaged, and I wanted to create a card for him and his fiancee to commemorate the occassion!

I just ADORE the new Moka line @ Taylored Expressions!  These stamps are SO totally adorable, and are a fabulous value too!

For my card today, I did a bit of masking!  I began by stamping Moka Charlotte in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and I then stamped her again on a post it note and cut her out to create a mask.  I then placed the mask over my stamped image and then stamped Moka Jack next to her.  I pulled off the mask and Viola!  The perfect couple!

These cuties were colored with Copic Markers, and Charlotte's veil and dress got a nice coating of Starfire Glitter.  She is SUPER sparkly in real life!  I cut them out and embossed the panel with Wonky Rectangle Nestabilities (LOVE this shape).  The sentiment, "For The Happy Couple", is from Sweet Bliss, and I cut it out and embossed it with Circle Nestabilities. 

All of the patterned paper is Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky from My Minds Eye (I think my laptop can type that by itself at this point, I use this paper SO much!) and I added some Kaisercraft Pearl Pearls.   I added a big bow created with seam binding, and tons of stitching.  I popped up the focal panel, as well as the sentiment panel, with Foam Tape for some dimension.

This card was SO super fun to make...I am hoping that my friend and his fiancee like it too!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
