A Wedding Card

This is a card I made for a wedding we're going to today. I started by taking some of the wrapping paper I used to wrap the gift, then I went from there!

There were some silver and pale peach tones in the paper, so I used Blush Blossom as the card base. Then I layered some Brushed Silver cardstock on top of that. I used the ticket corner punch on the silver and the wrapping paper.

I pulled out my Rubber Soul wedding stamp set for this card! I don't get to use it often, so I was excited to get to try it out! I stamped the image and the greeting on Shimmery White cardstock with VersaMark and embossed it with silver embossing powder. I sponged Blush Blossom ink on that to blend it with the cardstock. For the top image, I layered some Blush Blossom under it before adhering it to the wrapping paper. For the greeting, I layered some Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon across the bottom of the card, then punched the greeting with the ticket corner punch before adhering it over top. I put a couple of little pearl beads from my SU! Pretties kit on the sides using mini glue dots. And there you have it!

Of course, I made a bow out of the wrapping paper as well, so the gift paper, bow and card all coordinate! I'm such a nerd!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the wedding. It will be lots of fun! Congratulations, Susan and Caleb!
