On this Special Day..

Happy Monday - it's a start of a brand new week!  Thanks for all your well wishes, I'm feeling much better, but still  have that hacking cough.

I'm here today to share a Wedding card I made for a co-worker.  I was smitten on how this turned out.
It's amazing how those Spellbinder dies can really make your card!  What did we ever do before those dies came out??

I started out with a white linen base card measuring 5 x 7.  The next layer is cut from a piece of white (although it doesn't look like a true white) pearlized floral c/s using the Spellbinder Tapestry die.  This die cuts like butter, one run through the big shot and everything is cut out.   For the center white layer, I basically cut the tapestry die again using white linen, then hand cut out the center part that matches the base layer.  The sentiment layer is also using white linen and for this I used a stamp set from Justrite called celebraton labels one for the sentiment and Black -eyed Susan vintage labels five for the border.  The sentiment was cut out using the Vintage labels five dies from Justrite.

Finished off with some lace, silk ribbon, flower, heart hat pin and pearls.

I love how this Tapestry looks once cut out, I have made a few more cards using the same die. I will share these with you next.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit, have yourself a great day!

Stunning! This is a real keepsake kind of card, and I'm sure it will be kept in someone's wedding treasure box. The pearlized paper is gorgeous. I love the contrast against the other white. Good to hear how well this die cuts. I have two other background dies like this and have been very happy with them.

Pauline, your wedding card is pretty spectacular! The pearlescent white cs looks like a most beautiful soft gray.
