Wedded Bliss

Good afternoon!

I would like to share a card I made for a friend, who wanted a personalised wedding card.

Here it is: ta-da!
Really loving this very stylish and simple silhouette stamp from the Mr Darcy set by IndigoBlu. I stamped up in silver ink onto a nice satin paper. Slightly inked around the edges with the same ink pad - the metallic ink seems to take much longer to dry, indeed, the next day the ink on my stamp was still wet!!

Although I took some time to think about what I would use, I took my inspiration from Julia Watts and Sue Wilson from Creative Expressions - using a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder "Twisted Hearts" side B (such good value for money as you get 2 embossing folders in 1!) and then just one of the Spellbinders die cuts from Ironworks Motifs set.

I gently inked up the embossed and die cut paper with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink, found a lilac satin ribbon my stash, printed out my own wording, using my favourite font for my sentiments (American Typewriter) - and then used Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl glue to do the pearl dots around the edges, which is directly onto a 5x7" card (DO Papermania).

I also used Spellbinders die Corner Flourish and added a little ink and popped onto the front of the envelope, just to bring the set together - added a big Cosmic Pearl glue dot to the back of the envelope too!

My friend was very happy with this and I will be using this design to sell in future, in a range of colours, maybe plain white too. I'm rather pleased with the end result

Thank you for visiting me and my jibber-jabber,
Peace & Harmony to all,
