Best wishes

Hi everyone.  I can't believe where this past week went and it's Sunday evening already, which means back to work tomorrow, (insert sad face). With spring time arriving (well I hope so anyways, we had a bit of snow again this morning), I get a lot of requests for wedding cards, so thought I would get ahead.

I started by making my card base measuring 6.25 x 4.5.  From here I adjusted the middle piece so I had enough room to add the side borders.  The main center piece is done by using an embossing/cut folder (designables) from Marianne Designs. After I embossed, I cut a couple of borders using a Cherry Lynn die.  I glued these to each end of the center piece, then ran a string of pearls down each end to cover the seam. Flower is from MFT, leaves are from Marianne designs. Sentiment is from PTI.

I popped the layer up so that you were able to see some dimension between the card base and the embossed layer.

Finished off with some glitter in the center of the rose and pearls on the sentiment piece.

Paper: Cream c/s 100 lb weight
Ink: black versafine
Sentiment: PTI - propose a toast stamp set
Dies: Marianne Designables # DS0907,  Marianne designables - flower & leaves # LR0156, Cherry Lynn die - Anastasia border, Spellbinder - timeless rectangles, MFT - mini hybrid heirloom roses
Misc: pearls, glitter

Thanks for the visit, I'll be back during the week with another wedding card to share.  Have a good week.

Well, it took me a while, but I finally got here. Been just a tad preoccupied. Pauline, you floor me. I have this very same Marianne Creatable folder and never saw this in it. What the heck? Oooooh, I love those leaves, too! And I honestly thought that was real lace on the borders. Gorgeous rose, love the strings of pearls. My, oh, my, what a totally drop dead fabulous card!
