A Wedding in Blue

So I don't really know what happened Friday. I thought I had a post scheduled. (some busy weeks, I do that) Even so, no post. Sorry about that. I post every odd day, which usually I can fit in between family, my day job as a teacher, and stampin', but this week flew by. At the middle school where I work, the honey moon period is over. Wowzer. I came home exhausted every night and Bubba thought I was going crazy. It's just my life! I love it anyway. Back to today's post--what I worked on this weekend--a wedding card for a swap:

 and the inside (done with My Digital Studio):
Stamps: none
Paper: Marina Mist, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy
Ink: none (but the colors on MDS I used for the writing were Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy)
Accessories: Big Shot, Embossing Folder, Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, paper snips, and Basic Jewel Pearls

I am married. Bubba and I got married in 2007 and I made our invites to our party in 2008. But, if we had more time between the decision to get married and the actual wedding (like more than the two weeks we allotted), then I could have made these. They are straightforward, clean and crisp, and not too flashy. However, if I was to make 200 of these, I would have to plan better so I wouldn't get cramps. The cutting was a bit excessive for mass production. But the 70 or so I would have had to make would have been doable.

I used My Digital Studio to print the insides, then cut apart. I added one stamp for a little flair--but nothing too over the top.

How did I do it? Well, I used my new favorite tool--Simply Scored to score a 5 1/2 by 11" card at 3 3/8" and 7 5/8".
This would be so easy to do more than the 12 I needed for the swap. the markers you can place make the scoring multiples easy! No more measuring each 1/8" each score line like on the 12 x12" cutter. 

After that, I just carefully placed my embossing folder so that the edge was on my score line and the design was the way I wanted it on the right panel. I cut out around the image. The other side, I used a piece of Marina Mist cardstock with the embossing folder. I adhered it and cut both layers at once.

Happy Stamping!
