On Your Special Day!

Good morning all!  I just love white on white cards so whenever I get the chance to do one, I take it!  I think this would make a stunning wedding card, shame I don't have any weddings on the horizon!  I used the flourish embossing folder from Creative Expressions for the background as I think it adds such a romantic look to a card.  I used the scallop edgeability with the decorative insert to cut a three sides piece to add a frame for the nestibilities.  Using the heart squares, I cut the three largest sizes and layered them up as my focal element for my sentiment.  I added some white frilly edges ribbon to the card by lacing it through the side holes and tying a bow.  By adding a flower made from white wool felt made from the spiral flower I had a ready made embellishment for atop my bow.  I added the white decorative pearl stick pins and pierced around the edge to complete the card.  By the way, this is actually a folded card, not just a front like I usually show with my samples.  I'm not sure what possessed me to make it that way, maybe I am just hoping for an invite to a wedding so I can use this one! LOL  All for now, Sue x

If I was getting married I'd be happy to take the card off your hands!! But can't help on that front I'm afraid. :)

Beautiful card.

Stunning - I know what you mean about a white on white card though; makes me use more textures

I was lucky to win this card on the last POTW show you did. It is truly stunning. If you hadn't signed the back I would have been tempted to give it to my Nephew and his fiance who are getting married on 26th Nov. I am going to try and make something similar.
