Save The Date

Welcome to one of my favorite times of the year – chocolate and roses!!  As long as I get those this week, my husband will stay on my good side!!  I am surprising him with red velvet cupcakes so I know he is going to forgive me for missing Valentine’s evening to start a fun long weekend with my stamping buddies.  We always go out for our Valentine’s date when the resturants are little less crowded so he wasn’t all that upset.

 This week is all about love so I have an extra fun card to share.  I guess I have wedding on the brain since my daughter is in the midst of planning hers.  I used the Sparkle N Sprinkle's Today's Wedding set to create this wiper card. 

I used layers of pink and dark green, along with some striped and floral coordinating decorative cardstock.  The wedding dress was heat embossed with Opaline EP and lightly colored with alcohol markers.  I cut it out and layered it on the front. 

When opened, this card reveals a wedding cake, heat embossed with Silver Pearl EP on pink cardstock, with a hint of coloring (alcohol markers) and pearls.  The sparkly writing of the date was created with a glue pen and Cyclamen glitter.  And the best surprise is the pop up little heart with the Save The Date sentiment.

For a full tutorial on making a Wiper Card, head on over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog for my Sunday Sharing.  For details on this Save the Date Card, head here in the SNS gallery.

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!
