Well just for you then,
the theme for Week 80 is Wedding Card .
I wasn't sure what I was going to do for my DT card but whilst browsing round Paperchase with my youngest I came across the most delicate piece of paper, it was marked as tissue but it reminds me of.... I think it was called Angel Hair paper that I used to use when I first started making cards many moons ago. You use to use a wet paintbrush around the edge before pulling it, giving a delicate rough edge.
Anyway, I'm getting side tracked. The tissue has delicate silver and gold flecks amongst the fibre, beautiful in real life but I'm afraid the photo doesn't do it justice.
I sprayed my card with glue, carefully placed the paper on top and left it to dry for a few minutes before cutting it to size. The hearts I cut on the Cricut using Plantins Schoolbook but this was done a few hours later giving the glue plenty of time to dry, I was chuffed that it worked and so thought I'd push my luck and use an Xcut border punch on it as well to create the scallops.
To my amazement it worked although the punch did groan slightly as the layers were a touch thick together.
I touched the edges of the cuts with a silver ink pad, unfortunately it looks a bit darker in the photo than it actually is. A stamped sentiment added, some gorgeous bling, card complete.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Lexis 63, Punches and Dies,
Paper Sundaes 116, Anything goes,
Stamping with The Dragon, Wedding,
MIM85, Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,
