Blessed by God-Wedding Card

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!
