Wedding Card

We have a special wedding to go to this week so I made a card to go with our gift using the beautiful cake set Happy Day from Concord & 9th.

I started out making the background for this card by using some Tattered Rose Distress ink and blending it on some Bristol Smooth paper. I then took some Ranger Texture  Paste and a Tim Holtz Mini Stencil #25 and embossed one half and  flipped the stencil so that it covered the whole background. Once it was dry, I die cut the background to fit into the card base.

For the cake, I used Bristol Smooth paper and stamped the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Brutus Monroe Sterling Embossing Powder.

The colors for the wedding are navy and blush. I tried several cakes and decided I liked this version the best for the card. The banner and sentiment is also from the same stamp set and I used Chipped Sapphire Distress. I adhered both with foam tape to the background and added some clear sequins.

    This is so very beautiful. This was my first stamp set from Concord & 9th, I believe. I’d liked others, but held off, until this one. Ha! Thanks for joining us at Where Creativity Meets C9!

    Ericka, this is beautiful! Beautiful layering…just enough, but not too much…a balance I find difficult to achieve. I had to smile and laugh a bit when I saw your card tonight. I made a wedding card extremely similar to this a couple weeks ago (these were the same colors the bride chose for the wedding I attended). I can’t share it yet, but I think you’ll get a chuckle out of the similarities when our next challenge goes live on the 9th. Thanks so much for joining us for our Layers Challenge at Where Creativity Meets c9!
