I belong to a Facebook group that does a monthly swap and other challenges weekly. Last week our challenge was to design a black and white card. Perfect! I needed a wedding card and black and white are great colors for them. I found my designer series paper, Timeless Elegance, and knew it would look nice on a wedding card. There was one problem, it wasn't white, it was very vanilla. I used it anyway and still posted my card. I used the curvy corner trio punch #139683 to make the tag. I love this punch and hope they put it in the next annual catalog.
To make this card I used basic black cardstock measured at 5 1/2" x 8 1/4" score at 4 1/4". The other paper I used was:
Basic Black: 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" and 1 5/8" x 3 1/8"
Very Vanilla: 4" x 5 1/4" and 1 1/2" x 3" you will also need scrape paper to stamp the flowers and punch them out.
Timeless Elegance: 2" x 5 14"
I started out stamping the leaves from the stamp set Kinda Eclectic #135350 in the upper right hand corner. I stamped it twice to give it a fuller look. I then attached the dsp (designer series paper) to the piece of black paper. When I attached both to the very vanilla the right hand side of the black was at 2 inches the center of the very vanilla. This gave you a little space on the left side and enough room to stamp and put your sentiment on. Then I did all my stamping, the flowers and the sentiment (sentiment went on the 1 1/2" x 3" piece of very vanilla). You will need to stamp 2 flowers from the flower shop stamp set and one flower from the petite petals stamp set. The punches I used were the pansy and petite petals punches. Both the pansy and the petite petals are available as a bundle (you save 15%)! I used the curvy corner trio punch on all four corners of the black and very vanilla. I add pearls (the smallest ones on the sentiment and the largest one on the flower) and ribbon to dress it up a little. I stamped the inside with the saying from the For the New Two ##138562.
I think this card would be great for any wedding and you can personalize it to the colors of the wedding if you wanted to.
This is the last card from my Baby/Wedding/Anniversary class. I hope you have enjoyed seeing them and they gave you some inspiration. I had a fun time creating them and sharing them with all of you.
Thank you for stopping by today.
