love story polaroid

I am attending a wedding today of a former student of mine from back when I taught 5th grade! I'm guessing probably 10 years ago?! Now if that doesn't make me feel a little old...

I wanted to create for the bride and groom a one of a kind card for their special day, so I grabbed my Color Coach (#130118 / $14.95) to help give me some ideas. The Color Coach is useful during those times you just need a little extra help in coming up with colors that look good together. Don't forget you'll need to purchase the In-Color cards separately!! (2012-2014: #130119 / $2.50, 2013-2015: #130120 / $2.50) I flipped the pages until I came to the combo Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple, and Perfect Plum and decided to go for it!

Using the Versamark pad, I stamped the background with my current favorite background stamp Positively Chevron and then embossed using Iridescent Ice embossing powder (see the sparkle there on the top right of the card?) The "Polaroid" frame was made using the new Squares Collection Framelits...which I just got in my box of goodies this week! I saw the "Polaroid" as a demonstration at Convention and was excited to try one of my own. On the inside of the card is stamped the second part of the greeting: "Wishing you a lifetime of HAPPINESS".
