December 12 - MCCR Bippity Boppity Boo Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Cricut Craft Room Bippity Boppity Boo Blog Hop.


When I saw the name of this hop, I knew I wanted to join in on the fun. My sister is getting married on December 21st and I needed to make a wedding card for her and her husband to be. So I pulled out my Happily Ever After cart and went straight to Cinderella and Prince Charming on page 39.

I cut the happy couple out at 5" and still found that Cinderella's lips were so small I had to use my pick to place them exactly were I needed them. :)

I wanted Cinderella's dress to sparkle and Prince Charming's suit to shine so I cut the gown from the DCWV glitter stack in white. Well, no bride is complete without a few pearls so I added a few to her head piece, vail, and dress. Since Cinderella's face and chest piece were separate this left a line in her neck that I didn't care for, so to hide that I gave her a pearl necklace too.

Prince Charming's suit was cut from pearlescent card stock in black to give it a sheen. For his tassel and belt I used my gelly roll stardust glitten pen to add some royal bling.

I started with a 5x7 card that I got in a pack from Hobby Lobby then I added the layers for my background using patterned paper from atd (Momenta) Story of us CS pad. The first layer was cut at 4 3/4 x 5 3/4" rounding the corners with my corner punch. To soften this layer I used some silver ink around the edges. The next layer was cut using my Sizzix beaded oval and softened with silver ink, then I added some silver pearls to help frame Cinderella and Prince Charming.

To finish off my groom, I used my black glaze pen to add shine to his shoe. My stamped sentiment, "True love stories never have endings" is from Jaded Blossom's Wedding Wishes stamp set. Here's a close up of the sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed my project today.
