Wedding card version 2


I've used this idea for a wedding card before (I originally found the inspiration on Pinterest), but I tweaked it a bit this time around. You can see the previous cards here. This time I used a pearlescent grey cardstock instead of a black one, and made a tie for the groom. And yes, that is indeed a full Windsor knot, thank you for noticing the detail! I embossed the sentiment in silver, I think it's a great sentiment for a wedding card. I printed the inside of the card using a freely downloadable font called Jane Austen (I adore the font, it's just what I have been looking for!) and stamped a banner with the word love as well as small hearts in silver ink. It's still a very simple card, but I think I prefer this silvery grey version to the original. The greeting is just saying "Congratulations to the newlyweds" in Swedish, nothing more cryptic than that.

I am entering the card in this week's Shopping Our Stash where the theme is Triple Threat, i.e. use at least three out of: ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, sprays/mists, punched or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies, dry embossing or scoring. I have used rhinestones, ribbon, dry embossing and well, there are flowers on the embossing pattern so I think might just about make it too. Everything out of my stash, nothing new for this one. Scraps of paper for the white bits, a leftover bit of ribbon, a scrap piece of vellum and I have to admit, I have never used this specific embossing folder before so I'm glad it finally got to do what it was designed to do. I'm also entering the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where Anything Goes this week.

Hello! Gorgeous card - really clever use of the embossing folder with that beautiful wedding dress - love it!
Just wanted to pop on over and say thank you for the very lovely comment you left on my watercoloured card - so very honoured by your lovely comments and it seems that everyone thinks I should start following my own path of creativity rather than worrying about what others have said.
Thank you very much huni - I hope you have a lovely week! Karen xx @ http://stampinginpink.blogspot.co.uk/
