Happily Ever After

My hairdresser ask if I would make a card for a wedding she was attending, I said sure.  Then I asked what color(s) she would like it to be.  Her response was WHITE.  I thought that would be a real challenge because I like using all of the colors Stampin' Up! has.  But I did manage to create a card that she really liked.
Before I started, I decided to make a larger card more in keeping with the commercial type.  The card measures 4-5/8" x 6-1/4".  The base is Whisper White.  I embossed a piece of Shimmery White with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate and rounded the corners with the 3/16" Corner Small Punch.  You should be able to see the shimmer better by clicking on the photo.  To get the ribbon the way I wanted, I used Mini Glue Dots to hold the folds in place and then attached the embossed piece to the front of the card.  On another piece of Shimmery White, I stamped the Elizabeth stamp using VersaMark and heat embossed it with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.  To get the right placement of the sentiment, I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the congratulations from Wedding Sweet with VersaMark and also heat embossed that with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.  After rounding the corners, I attached it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  To give it a classy touch, I added Basic Pearls to the card front including the first "o" in Congratulations.  Those pearls sure dress up a card.  I hope the bride and groom enjoyed it and are on their way to their happily ever after.

If I may toot my horn a little, I was a Cut Above winner for The Paper Players color challenge last week.  I enjoy doing challenges usually because they help get the creative juices flowing.  Check out their challenge each week and play along.
