Wedding Day



I'm guest designing again this week at Crazy4Challenges and Joanne Grzelak has given us a sketch challenge. It's challenge C4C232.




I thought this sketch would make a pretty wedding card and I like to keep one or two in my stash at all times. This one was so fun to make.

I see the embossing isn't showing on my black oval but it is embossed with a pretty Anna Griffin Juliet Damask embossing folder.

The tie was made with a Fiskars Heart border punch. It is the remnants and the two hearts glued together at the bottom tips.

I made a dimensional banner using the tutorial by Tonie Storie on Splitcoaststampers.

Recipe:
Stamps-Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose precut Heart set (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock, black cardstock/Hobby Lobby
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cuttlebug Anna Griffin/Juliet Damask embossing folder, Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder, Spellbinders Classic Heart die, Fiskars Heart Border punch for the tie, Fiskars scalloped border punch, Kaiser black pearls, Copic marker/110

Beautiful black and white combo, Benzi! Love that embossing folder. Terrific idea turning the one heart into a tux and letting the other one look like lace from the wedding dress. Exceptionally creative, my friend. :-D
