Wedding Card

The Splitcoast Stampers website (almost the be-all and end-all of stamping techniques) had these ADORABLE wedding/anniversary cards... and since I have a very special wedding to attend, I just had to make one!

One difference on the 'tuxedo'... I didn't cut all through to the bottom, but folded back the flaps and used my black glaze pen to make the lapels for the tuxedo. I also hand-cut the tie instead of using black ribbon as the other samples have done.

I embossed the white heart with a Cuttlebug strip, used Diamond Stickles to highlight the raised area... and then half-pearls to highlight the top of the 'dress'.

For the Newlyweds stamp comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and my two newest punches; Word Window and two of the Modern Label punches... one cut to make a 2nd layer.

On the white areas, I used Silver Brilliance Ink to stamp the flowered heart from the stamp set I {Heart} Hearts to give some continuity between the background paper (Paper Studio Wedding Stack) and the white foreground piece.

I also used the photocorners from the Jasmine cartridge.

Before sealing the envelope, I did add the Congratulations stamp from one of the newer sets on the top center of the card.
