For a Special Couple

Hi Bloggers.

A Wedding Card today -

Easy peasy this one - can be done in any colour.

For the background, I popped my tan mat onto my base plate. I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my anti static bag and placed it dusted side up on my tan mat. I inked up the Heart Confetti Mask with Perfect Medium and placed it inked side down on top of the dusted card. I added the pink embossing plate and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the debossed pattern. I added Cosmic Shimmer Silver Lustre Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess and heat set.

I stamped the Vintage Car using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Wedding Belle Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of White Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon  and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Silver Lustre around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a card from the Christmas Shows on Ideal World and Create & Craft.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Good morning Julia,
    I really love this card with the vintage car, very cool, would make a great birthday card in dark colors with a different background for a guy. So clever.

  2. Hi Julia. Beautiful, and as Debby says, could make a great mans card. Good luck with tomorrows shows. I will be watching. Take care.

  14. Good morning Julia,
    What a lovely card for a modern wedding. I know it has a vintage car stamped on it, but the minimalistic styling of the card lends it to this type of wedding. Must admit being a car fiend or buff i love the stamp of the vintage car.

    What a lovely card and versatile too variety of occasions and colour choices.

  28. What a lovely wedding card Julia. The car stamp is one I'd have used just for a men's card so thank you for this inspiration! The silver embossed background is very pretty with the hearts left as white.
    Love the bow and dazzler too.

    Hugs from Katie-Louise

  29. Hi Julia, it may have been easy but it doesn't look as though it was easy. Maybe it could be used as a Congrats card when passing a driving test?
