My cousin recently tied the knot in Miami, so I made this card to coordinate with the tropical wedding theme.

First, I blended the Distress Oxide inks then stamped the palm branches in black ink. Next I added Stick-it adhesive to the back of the panel and die cut with the Gina Marie Designs Heart Collage die. After weeding out most of the tiny hearts, I adhered both the panel and the heart to a card base that is 4.25"x5.5". I heat embossed the Happily Ever After sentiment using gold embossing powder, then fussy cut the image and adhered it to the card using foam squares. I finished the card off by adding 2 tiny foiled hearts leftover from a previous project, as well as spritzing some Sheer Shimmer spray from Tsukineko. The blended oxide inks look especially beautiful with that shimmer spray!
This was actually one of my first times blending the oxide inks and it was so much fun! The various colors match up nicely and blend together beautifully. The mini ink blending tool makes blending super smooth and easy! I hope you'll give it a try!
Next time you're invited to an event that requires a card, try making something that matches the theme of the event. Thanks for visiting, and have a fantastic day!
