On Your Wedding

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a card that I made today. Many of you might know Winnie & Walter Stamps. They are celebrating their 2nd Birthday (belated) Bash this month. Winnie & Walter stamps is one of the first few stamp companies that I knew and I've been following them almost from the beginning. I'm happy to take part in their celebration by making a few cards (hopefully!!).

Here's what I made today inspired by Taheerah's inspiration pic:


I used the Mini Scenery: Do You See What I See? stamp for the background and gold embossed it on black cardstock. I gold embossed a few roses from The Big, the Bold and Extras and water colored them. For the flowers, I used Distress Ink Tattered rose (I smushed the ink pad on my acrylic block and picked it up with my brush) and for the leaves I used Yasutomo Pearlescent Watercolor - it has a light shimmer to it. I mounted the flowers and leaves on foam tape to give some dimension.



I gold embossed the wavy banner from The Big, the Bold and Extras on a piece of black card stock. I assembled the sentiments and gold embossed it inside the banner. I had to bend the 'wedding' to go with the curve of the banner. Check this video from Kristina Werner where she shows how to bend the stamp. I used the same technique. I used foam tape on the banner to give it a dimensional look.


I'm happy with this card. What do you think?

And here's wishing Winnie & Walter many more successful years to come!!

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave your comments and suggestions.

I must say that I would never have thought of doing a wedding card in these colors. But the results are stunning and I love it. Thanks for playing in the Mod Squad Challenge this week.
