Wedding Cards

Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a safe and happy Fourth of July! I went to my sister's house for a small family barbeque. Our city is one of few that still let homeowners do fireworks so we bought a small box. My stepkids loved letting them off and the baby was in awe! Then we watched all of the illegal fireworks from a safe distance!
I received my lovely Flourishes Stamp set - it was blog candy! I created this card with it and sent it as a RAK. I colored in some of the swirls with cranberry twinkling h2o's and tied an organdy black ribbon.
I then stamped the flourishes in silver encore as a background. I embossed in white on vellum this cake stamp. I colored in the back with my sakura pens. I used a retired wood mounted wedding stamp set. I embossed the sentiment in silver. The picture looks like the ribbon and cardstock backing I used are in peach but it's actually blush and like a shade of pink.
The background I again stamped in silver encore. I then stamped the same cake stamp on white cardstock and colored in the image using my sakura glaze pens. I used the colors green and red. I used my cricut to create the mat for the cake in cranberry. I tied it off with a red ribbon and overlaid vellum. I also embossed in silver the sentiment. The picture did not come out very well, apparently vellum is too shiny or something. In person this card is really gorgeous and vibrant. Out of the three this one came out very nice!

I had intended to create a lot more today! I took my baby for pictures, went to the post office and then had a wonderful night out with my husband so I didn't have time! Hopefully more later!
Pin It Now!
