I seldom have the need for a wedding card, but this summer one of my college roommates from 100 years ago is getting married. She's been single a long time & I'm so happy they found each other. I found 2 ribbons in my collection that are very close to the colors on the announcement. One layer cards are not something I usually make & I didn't actually plan it for this card. Sometimes things work out better without too much thinking about it. Penny Black makes the most gorgeous background stamps & I chose "peacock feathers" stamped in Encore! Ultimate Metallic Silver with clear embossing powder. Love the soft silvery shine--not overpowering for this simple card. The sentiment is from Penny Black's "lace delight" set. The beautiful font was just what I wanted & stamped perfectly in Memento Gray Flannel. Three white sequins finish it off.
I used Penny Black's "the bride" for the inside greeting & added just a small row of the "peacock feathers"--leaving room for me to write a personal message. I put off making this card for weeks--not sure why. This was a really fun card to make & I hope Cindy will like it. Thanks for taking time out to visit my blog & hope you've found something to inspire you.
