Wedding Day


I was so busy with design team work and other deadlines last week that I didn't get to ink up some of my other new sets! I was glad for a chance to play today! I am in love with this gorgeous set by Alli Miles, manufactured by Papertrey Ink. It's called Wedding Day, and it has so many possiblilties! For some reason Chocolate Chip and Cool Caribbean just seem like a classic, romantic combination, so I used them on this card. Two of the images were used to create "patterned paper" on the Cool Caribbean cardstock. The circles were cut with my Fiskars Circle Cutter, and I sponged around the edges before mounting them on dimensionals. The white background layer was made with my Cuttlebug and Textile Texture embossing folder. I think it coordinates perfectly with this set! I used a corner rounder (paper guide removed) to create the scallops, and I finished it with some Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon. I also stamped a coordinating envelope.

This card could be used for a wedding, anniversary, engagement, or just because! My best friend's daughter is getting married in July, so I have lots of things planned for this set! You'll definitely be seeing it again! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by -- I hope you're having gorgeous spring weather like ours (sunny and 75 degrees F). Have a fantastic day! :)

I just ADORE that colour combo. The double scallop layer is so much fun! Also, I made a comment over at SCS telling you that I LOVE the change in direction of the butterflies. That is very clever. So glad you had a chance to play.

Gorgeous! I think romantic is a perfect description of this card. I love how you angled the "butterflies" different directions in the stamped bg.
