Happily Ever After

Hello and welcome back!  I hope you're having a good weekend thus far.  I worked on a wedding card this afternoon, one of two cards for my team at work to give to a co-worker who had a destination wedding this last week.  I was inspired by the fabulous sketch challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts.

Trying for a clean yet sophisticated look, I chose to use black, white and Pacific Point.  My friend and Upline lent me a couple of stamp sets to use as I realized I only had one small stamp suitable for a wedding (thanks Susan!)

I mixed the stamp sets for this card, using the floral flourish from For the New Two in the upper left corner and the sentiment from Big News in the lower part.  Both were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Pewter Stampin' Emboss powder.  After that was done, the Silver Foil and Black Glimmer paper were added horizontally, the corners of the Pacific Point panel punched with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and the whole thing adhered to a larger panel of Silver Foil card stock.

Thanks for looking today!  As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated!  Do take the time to use the link above and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration!  I'll be back tomorrow to share the 2nd wedding card.

Very elegant card, Stef, and perfect for a wedding. I love the peek of Black Glimmer Paper in the trim and just two corners punched, another great touch. Thanks so much for joining us at the Pals Paper Arts this week!
