I created this card to wish good fortune to one of my best friends, one of my chosen family- Stacy. I also created it welcoming her new husband Andy, into the chosen family that is so so so special to me. I have seen and been part of 4 of my girls wedding days and wedding events leading up to the big day. Stacy and Andy were married in Hawaii with a very intimate ceremony, and even though i wasn’t there my good thoughts were with them on their special day. I also can’t wait to celebrate with them this summer when they host a BIG celebration for all their friends and family!
I used Copic markers to color in the fortune cookie. I used a white gel pen to color in the chopsticks on the kraft paper it really pops! I also added in a little sparkle pen to the take out container handle, to represent the silver metal. I listed both Memento and Versafine in my supply list below because i always use Versafine for my sentiments. Memento although I love it when used with copics.. I don’t love it for a good crisp sentiment. Creatively using foam tape and curling the paper, makes the cookie and fortune look almost real. I was happy with how it turned out.
I’m also grateful that another one of my best friends was able to be there on Stacy and Andy’s special day, and truly capture it on camera. I am always in awe of Steph’s talent behind the lens… but when it has to do with those near and dear to me… i’m even more thankful. Before you all flood her with emails to shoot your wedding, she isn’t taking wedding requests just yet, BUT family portraits, newborns… she is your girl! A little birdie told me she will have an art shop of her images soon, and don’t even get me started on her talent behind a macro lens! oy!
