Taking the Plunge

So...today's card is a little different from my norm, but the tongue-in-cheek nature of it was simply too perfect for the recipients!  Don't worry...I made them another, very pretty card to include, as well.  HA!

Congrats on Taking the Plunge


I chose a purple base as this was one of their wedding colors.  I stamped the toilet in grey and then added some shading with colored pencils.  I wish you could see the shading better!  Before stamping, I wiped the grey ink off the heart and added red ink with a Momento Marker.  I love how easy it is to do little details like that with markers!

I did use a little trick for the striped paper on the side.  It is from the Basic Grey What's Up! Collection, but it only had a couple of purple stripes, and I cut off one of them when trimming it to size!  I wanted a bit more of the purple to coordinate with my card base, so I added a few purple stripes over the lighter areas with a marker.  It worked so well!

Congrats on Taking the Plunge (detail)


A bit of American Crafts glitter tape added just a bit of sparkle!  This was SUCH a fun card to make!  The stamp set is from Unity Stamp Co. - go ahead... you know you want it.  HA!  It's called AH Crap!  HAHAHA!  Too funny!

Anyway...there you go.  Somehow it seemed an appropriate card for a  Monday.

Have a Happy, folks!
