Hello friends! It seems like I only post on the weekends lately so I'm kind of excited that I have a card for you and its only Wednesday!! Hooray for me!!
I had a friend ask me if I could make a wedding card for a special young couple. I was thrilled to be able to help her out and loved making a card without my usual colored image. This looks a little more elegant and I love it!
The only splash of color is my flower which I made following Theresa's tutorial here. My rose is a little flatter than hers but I think with some practice they will be just as lovely. I made the sentiment on my computer and changed the color to 50% grey. The ribbon is from my stash and I added a small charm from Michael's.
I inked my petals with Orchid Opulence from SU. I've had it for years so I have no idea if it is still available. The leaves got Mellow Moss and Baroque Burgundy. The beautiful embossed paper is also from Michael's. It is deeply embossed and is so wonderful.
I used the same sketch on the left side. The top of the bottom section isn't taped down so the giver can slip her monetary gift in there. If she decides to buy a gift you can't tell it's a pocket and it still looks nice. The writing panel is punched with a MS corner punch and inked with the same color as the rose.
I put my stamp right on the back instead of matting it. I thought it was a better fit with this card.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Tuesday Alchemy - Bingo (I used Dies, Free, Bling. I also used ribbon and embossing but they don't line up ;) )
Totally Papercrafts - Monochromatic (I hope my bit of green doesn't blow the only one color aspect of this)
Papertake - Anything
Creative Inspirations - Anything
I think that's about it. Thanks for taking a peek!
Blessings & Hugs
