today, tomorrow and always

I back to share another wedding card.  I hope you are not getting tired of these types of cards. I promise my next post will be a coloured image :).

A co-worked requested a wedding card in green, silver and lace theme, and this is what I came up with:

Sentiment is from Justrite which is stamped in black versafine onto some white cougar 100 lb cardstock.  I used spellbinder decorative labels one die to cut it out. I cut another one using the same die and layered behind my sentiment piece.  

The larger white piece was done using spellbinders ornate labels one embossing folder.  I cut it down to 4 1/8 square, then layered this onto a piece of lime green c/s.  I was playing around one day cutting a bunch of different spellbinder dies just so I could have them handy if needed, so the layer behind the white/green layer was cut using spellbinder victorian medallion three die.  I needed something behind the green and this seemed to fit perfectly.

The grey/silver paper behind is a pearlized cardstock I picked up at my local scrapbook store.

Pulled it all together with some lace, lime green silk ribbon and pearls.

Thanks for visiting today, take care and see you again real soon.....

Tired of something so beautiful? Not possible! You know, I love dies almost as much as stamps, and my collection has been growing quite a lot lately. However, I still see more everyday that inspires me to WANT more, and this is one of those that inspire me. Now I want to put something lacy and feminine on my next order. The embossed panel sure is pretty, and silk ribbon always makes the most gorgeous bows. I'm always happy to see a card from you, Pauline!

I'll say it again. I wish I knew how to work with all those fancy dies like you do. Gorgeous layering and there's no way she won't be pleased with this.
