NSU - A Wedding Card Challenge

With DD21 at home from uni, my craft room has been taken over and consequently not much creating has been done in the last few days.

However, DD did ask me to make a card for a wedding she will be attending in a couple of weeks which posed a challenge for my stamp collection; it's a same-sex wedding, so I can't use my favourite bride and groom image, nor 'Mr and Mrs' type sentiment stamps. 

The colours for the wedding are red and purple, so I wanted to incorporate those into the card somehow and to make it romantic and elegant. In the end I didn't use any stamps at all, but typed my sentiment on the computer.

This is what I came up with:

Materials used:
  • card - perfect plum, gumball green
  • other - dotted scallop ribbon border punch, Big Shot
  • non SU - white linen cardstock, purchased paper roses, rose petal punch and embossing punch, Tied Together embossing folder, glue gun, pearls, computer and printer

DD is very happy with it, so hopefully the happy couple will be too. I think I'll have to make a special gusseted envelope for it though - that's the next challenge!

Thanks for stopping by.
