FCCB Design Team Day!! Wedding Wishes....

It's Design Team Day over at FCCB!!! That means another challenge for you!!! This week, we were asked to create a card, LO, or project that fits with the theme of "Wedding Wishes", and it must contain a BELL. There are many bell cuts that I could choose, but I decided to go with the double bell from Sweethearts. I also decided to go with a totally white card, with each layer only set apart by texture, inking, Pop Dots, Flocking, and Stickles. I will say that the inking bled a little into the Diamond Stickles, so the inside of the bell looks slightly gold. I did use Gold Stickles for the clappers of the bells, but the inner bells are supposed to be white with Diamond Stickles. OOPS! :) Here is my creation, mistakes and all!!



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridges: Storybook, Sweethearts
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders: D'Vine Swirls, Swiss Dots
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger, in Walnut Stain
Stickles: Diamond, Gold
Flocking: Linen White by Inkssentials
Ribbon from my stash

Here's a close-up photo to show some of the dimension...it is hard to tell in the photo, but the ribbon on the bells have flocking on them! It's the first time I've used it and I LOVE IT! I will be using it more!!! :)



My card is simple, but gets to the point! I hope you enjoyed it, and that it inspired you to get creating those Wedding Wish Cards!! Link them up over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, and join in with us!! We can't wait to see what you create!

Wow Maquel! Gorgeous as always! I can't believe you can take ordinary Cricut cuts and turn them in to such works of art!!

Here's what I can't figure out...how do you get the ink inside little tiny spaces, like the inside loops of your bow? Do you have a special tool for that?!!? I'm just starting to play with inking, and I can't figure it out!!!

What a gorgeous card! I love the white on white and all the embossing is fabulous. Mistake? You may call it that, but I call it "shading"! I think the effect is lovely!
