Golden Anniversary Cricut Classically Modern Gatefold Card - Tiddly Inks Honeymooners Digi

  In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed.  You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.    Mr. Darcy  - 😍 Pride and Prejudice 

This adorable Tiddly Inks Honeymooners image from the July Kit and Clowder Copics Class couldn't have been more perfect  to create a fun Golden Anniversary card for my honey of fifty years.  A beautifully intricate  Cricut Design Studio  gate fold card from the Classically Modern Cards Cartridge was the perfect base to showcase these cute newlyweds riding off into the great unknown to start their new life adventure, just as my sweetheart and I did  50 years ago.  We drove from Ogden, Utah  to  Glendale, California three years after we were married and haven't left the amazing Golden State since.

In class we learned how to create the background from scratch for this fun vintage image   I know there is a cool way to print words  directly  onto an  image in Word, but I didn't have the time nor energy to figure it out, so I just typed and sized my Doug and Nancy sign, cut it out, sponged the edges and popped it up on my card with some shallow pop dots. I'll save the technology lesson for another day.

It's amazing how fun it is to create depth and interest for a stamped image just by using a few simple copic techniques.  It takes some work, and I definitely need a lot more practice.  but I think it's well worth the learning curve!

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
