One of the VERY special people in my life got married last week, so I needed a very special card to celebrate the big day and express my heart on paper. This was a decidedly Christian wedding, so I turned to Blessed by God stamp set, a lovely inspirational rubberstamp set by Stampin' Up! Carolina loves vintage, so I wanted the wedding card to have a bit of a vintage element as well as elegance. A combination of new catalog products and vellum helped me achieve the look I wanted.
Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper is so aptly named! The lace design on this paper is really gorgeous and can go vintage or just elegant. I wanted both! The Tip Top Taupe Lace Trim tied in the lace image on the paper and added some softness. Side note: I really love adding ribbon to handmade cards. If you think about it, paper is made from wood, and wood is hard. When you have lots of paper, you can need a bit of softness to balance your design. More often than not, I turn to ribbon or twine:)
Now, I'm a quick and easy card kinda girl, but this was a very special card for a very special occasion. So I made lots of vellum flowers--a true labor of love! I punched them, sponged them (with Tip Top Taupe ink), put a pearl in the center of each one, scrunched them up, adhered them to the card, and finished them off with Dazzling Details! I think it was a record for me!
