Wedded Bliss Club

Hi, Lois here with my Monday post.  August has always been a month for weddings for me.  My late husband and I were married in August fifty-five years ago.  So I'm bringing you another card made with the newly-released wedding series of dies from CottageCutz.  This time that cute little owl couple, as well as the stitched rectangle scallops..

I cut the many pieces for my little scene from various scraps of colored cardstock.

I added some additional color to some of the pieces to give them a bit of dimension.

Purple is one of my favorite colors, and my card reflects that.  Both the card base and the patterned paper accent are in shades of purple.  The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored in half; the patterned paper is cut slightly smaller.  My scene will appear on a piece of pale blue cardstock glued to the largest stitched scallop rectangle die cut.  In addition I cut a 1" x 4" piece of black cardstock for the road and tore a narrow strip of green for the grass.

I constructed the background for my focal panel, as shown.  I "borrowed" an idea from my fellow DT member, Pam, and drew a broken white line down the center of the road.  I had seen that on a card that she made a few weeks ago.  Thanks, Pam for the idea!

Then came the fun part of putting the bicycle and owls together.  

I stamped the sentiment, punched it out, and finished my card.

I realize purple is not most people's first choice for a wedding card; but, as I mentioned, I love that color!  And I think it goes well with the whimsical bride and groom owls.

CottageCutz dies used on my card are:
