Because of some medical issues, I wasn't able to attend my daughter-in-love's sister's wedding in March. And I was way behind in creating a card. When I saw the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #41 was "weddings" it motivated me to get moving.
I want to preface this to say that when we received the invitation, it came in a small box and the invite and accompanying cards were wrapped in lace and burlap fabric. So I recycled some lace and burlap to use on the wedding card.
Card Base: Card measures 4-1/2" x 6-1/2". Shimmery White card stock was cut at 6-1/2" x 9" and scored at 4-1/2".
Sentiment: Before doing anything else on the card front I heat embossed the sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set with VersaMark and silver embossing powder. The rest of the sentiment from the same stamp set was heat embossed inside with silver embossing powder (forgot to take picture). The sentiment reads: wishing you a marriage made in heaven and a lifetime blessed by God.
Center Layer/Strip: I cut a piece of the lace from the invitation so I would have just the edge (the lace has silver threads as part of the design; tried to capture it in this photo). I added the two lace pieces to silver foil paper. The burlap fabric was cut and layered over the lace. Three flowers from the Rose Garden Thinlits were cut from silver foil paper using the Big Shot. After adding rhinestones to three Candy Dots brad bases, I added them to the three flowers and then to the lace/burlap layer. Dimensionals were used to attach the layer to the card.
Embellishment: Again using the Rose Garden Thinlits, I cut two leaf stems from the silver foil paper and added them to the card.
Envelope: Since the card was not the usual A2 size, I had to make my own envelope. Using the Neutrals envelope paper and the envelope punch board, I made an envelope that fit the card perfectly. I heat embossed two leaf stems from the Rose Garden stamp set in the corner so that it coordinated with the card. I also added a liner to the inside of the envelope using the Neutrals designer series paper stack. One of the colors in the stack is silver - goes perfectly with this card (sorry again - forgot to photograph).
Thanks again for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying the weekend. We are expecting snow here in the Hudson Valley Sunday morning. Had next to nothing all winter long. Didn't the calendar say it was spring?
