Hello, I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a wedding card featuring the Colorado Craft Company Lovely Legs Happy Forevering stamp set. I haven’t used my coloured pencils for a while so this card was a perfect time to bring them out! These stamps have a lot of detail in terms of shading so are perfect to practice your light forms and shading.

I stamped out the married couple scene onto some white cardstock with some MFT Extreme Black ink. I used my Prismacolor coloured pencils to colour in the scene. I personalised the colours based on the couple I was sending the card onto. The trick with these wax-based pencils is to use lots of light layers, finishing with a heavier layer to make sure the the tooth of the cardstock is evenly covered. When finished, I cut this out with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die.

Using another slightly larger Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle, I die cut two more rectangles, one from Blue Jay cardstock and the other from vellum.

For the card base, I stamped the MFT All Lined Up background stamp in some Versamark ink onto some kraft cardstock. I then layered the stitched rectangles onto the card base and white heat embossed the ‘CONGRATULATIONS!’ sentiment from the MFT Essential Sentiments set.
