Just Married!

It's Thursday already! Wow time sure does fly! I hope you have all enjoyed some sun and beautiful weather lately - I know I have!!!! 

I kept the layout simple on this card because I really wanted the stamp to stand out. The sentiment and message will be included on the inside when I'm ready to give it.

I have neighbours who are getting married this summer, so the "Just Married" stamp from the Spring 2016 Collection from High Hopes is perfect!  The Groom to be owns a red antique tractor and races a tractor trailer and tractors so I purposely cut my image out on a slight angle. He will get a kick out of the fact that the "groom" is "driving" on two wheels.

My stamp is coloured with alcohol markers (list below) and cut out with a Stitched Rectangle die from Your Next Stamp.
To create my frame, I cut out a piece of white card stock and then used the same stitched rectangle die to cut out my window.
The embossed frame around the square was done by measuring the size of square I wanted and marking it with pencil on the back side of my frame. 
Then I put it on my Scor-Pal and scored out my frame and popped it up with pop dots. 
To achieve the blue sky around our happy couple, I left the paper with the image on it in the die and taped the die to the paper (on the backside). Then I took my sponge, ink and dauber and added the ink. It is very hard to see in the picture but the bumper, mirror and hearts on the Just Married sign are all done with Silver Wink of Stella, and Glossy Accents were added to the mirror.
