June Wedding


Well, I have a wedding card, now all I need is to find some one getting married.  This is my DT card for Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #61-Weddings.  This digi is absolutely adorable and was a real pleasure to work with.  I scored the background card at 3/4" intervals in both directions and added a Martha Stewart pearl to each intersection.  I had seen this score and embellish technique used a couple times before and absolutely loved it.   Here is a link to one of the cards.  I colored the happy couple with copic markers and added lots of pink and white flowers. The leaves and boughs were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I thought a sentiment on the front would have made it look too busy. Her dress and veil have dots of glitter applied and the ruffles are done with glitter. the close-up shows the glitter a little better.  The corners were done with a Sizzix punch.

Here is a link for a tutorial of how to do the scoring:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/grid_technique/   I don't own a scoreboard so I did it a little differently.  I marked off three quarter inch sections along all four edges on the back of my cardstock.  If you use a 6X6 inch square this works out perfectly.  Then I drew lines diagonally to connect all the marks.  I put this cardstock on my paper cutter fit with a scoring blade and carefully scored all the lines.  There have been many, many times that I pressed a little too hard and cut through the cardstock.  The pencil marks are on the backside so you don't see them.  For me it was much easier if I actually had pencil lines to follow.

Copics:  C1, C3, C5, C7
         E00, E02, E15, E17, E34
         G09
         R11, R22
         Y21, Y35, YR31

Your coloring is fantastic, and I love the lines on the card. I know what you mean about being careful. Only I do it on a card that's about finished and then I have to cover it however I can find. LOL. I don't know if you can get Martha Stewart things, but she has a score board that's only about $12. Hugs, dj
