Card: For the Newlyweds

This is one of my favorite cards I have made!  I love the colors…I love the flowers…I love it all!  I think it’s a perfect wedding card that can be customized to the bridal colors (if you know them), or you could even put a different sentiment to make it a completely different card.

 

The base of this card is River Rock cardstock (108640).  The beautiful flowers were stamped on Whisper White cardstock (100730) in Marina Mist (126962) and Early Espresso (126974) using the Stippled Blossoms stamp set (126747).

To stamp the flowers, you need to use the masking technique.  You stamp the flower on a scrap piece of paper and carefully cut it out using the very sharp and precise Paper Snips (103579).  Then, you stamp the flower, first in Marina Mist, then the top layer stamp in Early Espresso on the Whisper White cardstock.  Then, you place the cut out flower over the flower you just stamped, and then stamp another flower over the top of that off to the side, so it looks like one of the flowers is in back of the other.

The sentiment came from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (127802).  I love this set, because you can choose from 24 different sentiments for whatever type of card you need to make.  I wrapped Basic Black 1/2″ Scallop Dots Ribbon (124145) around the Whisper White cardstock before matting that with the Marina Mist cardstock (119682).  Three Pearl Basic Jewels (119247) on the bottom finish off this classy card.
