Cheers To Love Wedding Card

by Joanne James4. May 2015 18:54

It's a Bank Holiday here in the UK today and whilst I made today's card this morning, I have spent a pleasant afternoon gardening so am late with my blog post today! I used this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for today's card and I am squeezing in just under the wire for a link-up (hopefully!) Here is the sketch:

I decided to use one of my retiring and not-yet-inked-up (shock, horror!) sets to make a wedding card today - here it is:

 

I went with a 'black and white and hint of pink' colour scheme today, using a base of Basic Black with mats in Pink Pirouette and Basic Black and a strip of 'Stacked With Love' DSP for my patterned edge. I made my card slightly narrower than usual to allow for the overhanging element and still fit into a standard envelope. I stamped the main stamp from the 'Cheers To Love' stamp set in Memento Black onto my right hand panel of Whisper White and then for my 'over the edge' element I chose a couple of stacked hearts, stamped with the 'Mr' and 'Mrs' stamps from the same set and punched with my Sweetheart punch. Lastly I added a tiny pink heart punched with my trusty Owl Builder Punch to the main sentiment and a few rhinestones to the hearts for a little sparkle.

I really love this set and it has everything you need to create beautifully co-ordinated wedding stationery, not just wedding cards. So it might be retiring, but for me it's a keeper (best make extra room on my shelf...)

I hope you like today's card; back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I love your take on the sketch.  The large sentiment is a great focal point for it, and the two hearts work perfectly as well.  Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
