A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

For a Wedding

Addicted to CAS's challenge is "Wedding".  Perfect as I need a card for a friend's daughter's wedding in August!

I went with gold and white and hearts:

I made a very CAS shaker card using gold glitter in the shaker and a gold embossed sentiment.

I die cut the entwined hearts out of my top layer, placed acetate on the backside and then glued the hearts back in place on the acetate. I added foam tape all around the opening, put in lots of chunky gold glitter pieces, and then added it to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps - Memory Box sentiment
Ink - ColorBox gold
Paper - white cs
Size - 4.75" square
Accessories - gold embossing powder, entwined heart die, gold glitter shaker filler, acetate, fun foam
