A Wedding!

Hi There, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. This one is going to be pretty quick unfortunately.... I'm currently fighting a NASTY Bug, which seems to have knocked me for a SIX, hopefully I'll make it to bed early and feel better in the morning.. technically I should get an extra hour sleep tonight, given Day Light Savings finishes at 2am here in WA... here's hoping my little darlings SLEEP for the extra hour!!!! Well one can hope can't they..hahaha.

Anyway lets get back on track... some of our dear friends (Craig and Kellee) are getting married tomorrow so I had to make a card for them on their very special day. Given I'm not feeling the best, I just wanted it to be quick and simple but classy and elegant. Well, here's what I came up with, and I think I managed to achieve my FOUR wants.

I dont often make ALL White cards, but I figured what could be more simple that white. I've used my Boho Background and Forever in My Heart stamp sets (Forever in my Heart is being retired in3 days!!!!). After sitting at my desk pondering or perhaps procrastinating for a bit I came up with the idea of Heat Embossing one of the background stamps (Boho Backgrounds) onto the card, so I inked up the Flower stamp with my VersaMark Pad and then used some White Embossing powder and my Heat Tool to get the effect on the bottom of the card. Then I used my Forever in my Heart set and stamped the 'love' heart stamp in versamark and the solid spotted heart in versamark and used some Silver Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool, then I popped them all up on some dimensionals. A touch of white ribbon and some silver cord and Voila.... there you have it my 'quick, simple, classy and elegant' Wedding Card.

Oh and if you'd LOVE to get your hands on the 'Forever in Your Heart' stamp set then email me before Tuesday, because on Tuesday this gorgeous set will be retired!!!

HOpe you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Forever in my Heart (soon to be retired), Boho Backgrounds
Card:- Whisper White
Ink:- VersaMark
Accessories:- Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, White Embossing Powder, Silver Embossing Powder, WHite Ribbon, Silver Cord.

Wow, this is so elegant! I love the look of white embossing on white paper - never thought of that! Have to try it now.
