Love just got real...


It's time for a new Scenic Saturday card over on the Bellarific Blog. With the arrival of June, wedding season normally goes into full swing. Unfortunately I've had two weddings in my family already have to postpone their nuptials until next year due to the pandemic and the resulting social distancing measures. Still, I've had this stamp mash-up idea floating around in my head for a couple months now so I went ahead and made this card happen... I can always save it until next summer, right? 

The Uptown Zodiac Girl Gemini stamp has always been a favorite and it is so much more versatile than just the horoscope theme. When I added the beautiful Curvy Girl Bride to my stamp collection I immediately saw these two as a pair of bridesmaids posing behind the bride for photos on her big day. All I had to do was stamp Curvy Bride in the center of my card and mask her off. Then I lined the Gemini stamp up slightly behind her and only inked up the girl on the left and stamped. Next I cleaned the stamped and moved it over to the right just a bit then stamped the girl on the right. When I removed the mask the 'twins' had been separated and I had two lovely individual bridesmaids to color. The sentiment is borrowed from another Curvy Girl stamp set, Curvy Girl with a Newborn, and I think it works just as well here.   :) 

Stay crafty my friends!
