Happily Ever After - Hampton Art

I have a sweet little wedding or anniversary card to share with you today. The 7 Gypsies: Happily Ever After (PS0631) stamp from Hampton Art is perfect for those "happily ever afters"!

 Here is a little step-by-step for you so that you can give this card a try.

1. Make a black, top fold card 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.

2. Trim pink designer paper 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and attach to card front.

3. Trim printed tissue to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and attach to card front with vellum adhesive.

4. Place gems in the four corners of the card.

5. Attach white doily to center of card.

6. Trim pink designer paper to 2 x 4 1/8 inches and attach to the center of the card, overlapping the doily.

7. Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock with black archival ink. Trim to approximately 1 1/4 x 4 inches. Smudge edges with Rose Coral chalk ink and edge with black archival ink. Attach to center of pink designer paper.

8. Attach small gems to the four corners of the sentiment.

9. Attach gems and paper flowers to the lower center edge of the sentiment.

10. Add white cardstock to the inside of the card. If desired, decorate the inside of the card with a strip of the pink designer paper and a gem.

Easy peasy! Stop by the Hampton Art Blog for more inspiration.
