Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here and it is wedding season. There is something about making a wedding card that makes you want to create something full of elegance and texture. Using a couple tools from We R Memory Keepers, I was able to easily make a gorgeous card for someone’s special day.
Nothing says elegance to me like letterpress. The Evolution creates a deep and beautiful impession, simply.
To the floral letterpress plate, I added silver ink. This ink is a pigment formula ink, meaning it will stay wetter longer, which is what is needed for the best results when creating this look. I placed my paper over the top of the inked plate, set that inside the letterpress platform, and passed it through the Evolution. (Use the Letterpress setting on the side of the machine. Its one easy turn of the knob for the correct pressure.)
With a few turns of the handle, I was able to make this cardstock truly fabulous. Look at the embossing and how the silver shimmers inside of it.
To reinforce the theme of the day, I used the Happy Jig to create the word love from silver wire. All the pegs and a pair of wire cutters are included in the Happy Jig and I love that they all store inside the tool.
The instructions for creating the word love are in the book enclosed with the Happy Jig. (If you are looking for more patterns, be sure and check out the We R Happy Jig Instagram account for more ideas and designs.)
To adhere the wire word to my card, I applied a strong glue to the back of the wire.
Here is to a summer of love!
