Time Wedding Shower Card


A friend of mine asked me to make a card for her daughter's wedding shower.  She is giving her daughter her grandmother's watch for her to wear in the wedding, so I thought the Papertrey Ink Hands of Time stamp set and coordinating dies would be perfect.  My friend liked this "time" sentiment, and then I added a "best wishes" sentiment from PTI's Ribbon Tails stamp set.  The wedding colors are cream and blush with accents of black, so I went with those colors.


I just love this clock!  Making it takes three different PTI dies:  Clock Face, Number Time Trio, and Hands of Time.  I covered the hands with Glossy Accents before attaching them to the clock with a brad.


I made a cluster of flowers and leaves with My Creative Time's new Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  For the centers, I cut them out of the same sweet blush color as the flowers, but I embossed them with clear embossing powder to give them a darker color and some shine.
