Wedding Wednesday

Hello!  I have a simple but elegant wedding card to share with you today.  It comes to us from Stephanie Gittins.  She's a demo in Utah.  Let's see what she has to say about her card.


I love the Medallion stamp- it's so elegant, and the large size of the design makes projects quick and easy.  This is a set of wedding cards I made for my mother-in-law.  She sends them through the mail so I have to keep the bulk to a minimum.  The card measures 5x7.  I used sponge daubers to apply the ink to the stamp because I wanted a little more texture in my image.  I stamped the image in Pale Plum directly on the card.  Then I stamped it again in Perfect Plum on a seperate piece of paper, cut out the center and layered it on the card.  I added a half-back pearl from the Pretties Kit; these attach so easily with a drop of Crystal Effects or with a Mini Glue Dot.  Our fabulous White Satin Ribbon really adds elegance to any project.  My mother-in-law requested the retired greeting; she loves the fancy design.  The cards came together very easily, but I love how they turned out.
 
Stamps:  Medallion background stamp, All-Year Cheer III (Retired)
Inks:  Perfect Plum & Pale Plum Classic Ink
Paper:  Whisper White cardstock
Accessories:  White Satin Ribbon, Pretties Kit, Crystal Effects, Sponge Daubers, Paper Snips


Thanks for sharing your card with us, Stephanie!


Until next week...
Happy stampin'!
