Hello Everyone!
Welcome to My Craft Spot's Spring Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #3!

 All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets. Then on Saturday, March 31st, we will have a Stamp Release Party Blog Hop! There will be TONS of prizes along the way, so you won't want to miss it!

Today's stamp set is Happily Ever After!

ALL stamp sets will be available for purchase on Saturday, March 31st!

For my Sneak Peek Project, I went with the "So happy for you!" sentiment.

When I think of Weddings, I think of BEAUTIFUL weather and GAZEBOS!! I think most Brides want to get married in a garden or gazebo. So for today's project I decided to make a WEDDING GAZEBO Shaped Card.

The gazebo was cut from the Cricut Freshly Picked Cartridge at 5.25". I mostly used Bazzill Basics Avalance(white) cardstock and used a My Mind's Eye - The Bright Side Two - paper from the 6x6 paper pad.

To give it a more realistic WEDDING GAZEBO look, I used some of the My Craft Spot "Snow White" Crinkled Ribbon around the outside "pillars" and "ceiling".

I've been having soo much fun with my Cricut Flower Shoppe Cartridge, that I decied to replace the original flowers of the cut with some Scallop1 Flowers from Flower Shoppe. The flowers were cut at 1.25" and I used a Glass Head Pin for the center.

Underneath the upper left flower I added some "Cotton Candy" Devine Twine, available at My Craft Spot, and the sentiment.

And of course, I added a few layers of dimension.

To the inside of the card, I stamped the "Congratulations to the happy couple!" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Happily Ever After" Stamp Set.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for My Craft Spot's Spring Release Party Sneak Peek #3 To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "Happily Ever After" Stamp Set - available for purchase Saturday, March 31st, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
