New Wedding Card!

I have been showing you cards for Valentine's day, but after getting Papertrey Ink's Love & Marriage set, I'm thinking wedding!  The stamps in this set just scream wedding and I had so much fun making this card.  I don't have any weddings until this summer, but while my "wedding mojo" is crackin', I better take advantage of it.

Here is my first wedding card of 2012!

I have never stamped this much on vellum, but letting it dry thoroughly is key.  I love how beautiful and soft it looks over top the large sentiment stamp below it.

A close up so that you can see the couples listed in the sentiment stamp below the vellum.  Also, take a look at those embossed flourishes.  They truly made the card go "fancy" in 2 seconds flat!

Materials Used (all PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Love & Marriage stamp set
Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card - Flourishes
Stampers' Select White cardstock
Pure Poppy ink
VersaFine ink - Onyx Black
VersaMark ink
Filigree embossing powder - Clear
Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stephanie, this is beautiful. :) Very elegant and the color choices are striking. :) Re: vellum drying - I once heard/read that one could put the piece in the freezer for a while and it would accelerate the speeding process. Not sure if that's true or not, but thought it was worth passing along. :)

My son just got engaged and I'm making a wedding scrapbook for them, so I forsee lots of wedding things in my future. I love what you did with the vellum and especially the flourishes. The pop of red on the vellum was very striking and added a fun feel to the card. Very pretty card.
