May Today Be The Beginning

Hi Bloggers,

Another wedding card today. It's the theme for my stamping shows on Create & Craft next Monday so there's going to be a few of these featured over the next week or so. Hope you don't mind.

For the background, I stamped some champagne glasses from the Creative Expressions Mr & Mrs Stamp Set using the Eco Green Paris Trunk Parchment Dye Ink Pad. I gave it a quick blast with my heat gun to make sure it was dry. I then popped it through the Grand Calibur inside the Couture Creations Cultivated Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. I edged it with the Parchment Ink and Cut & Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Bride & Groom Stamp set using Eco Green Paris Trunk Black Dye Ink Pad. I then stamped the frame from the same stamp set so the sentiment was within it. I added some Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I cut out using Spellbinders Labels Thirteen.

I made some flowers out of cream crochet ribbon, white crochet ribbon and ivory vintage ribbon together with white wrinkle-edge ribbon - I'm liking the two ribbons in one flower. You'll be seeing me do that quite often, I think. I cut the crochet ribbon and ruffle-edge ribbon in half lengthways before using. I cut some 'leaves' from the Spellbinders Damask Accents Die Set and inked with the Parchment Ink while still in the die.

I assembled the card as shown added a Creative Expressions Self Adhesive Pearl Swirl, some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Golden Pearl Pearlescent PVA and a few punched leaves for contrast.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
