Try Stampin' Challenge #114 {An Elegant Wedding Card}

I had a busy evening of crafting last night! Finished off some gift tags, made a few masculine cards and a couple wedding cards. I'm well on my way to having lots of variety for the upcoming craft fair this Sunday! Although, I must say... my craft room is a mess! Scraps of paper everywhere! I have one little spot on my desk, just room enough to make a single card. Can't wait to clean and organize everything! Once all this craft fair craziness is done, I plan on doing a series of blog posts on how I organize my craft room - stay tuned!

For today's card, as I'm building up my stock of wedding cards, I decided to follow the new sketch by Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

I just got a new wedding stamp set with my last Stampin Up order called "Love and Laughter" It's so elegant and fun! I decided to use the 3-tier cake stamp as the central image in my card. I used the colour combo of Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla for a softer look - perfect for a wedding card! Here's how it turned out:

I love the burlap ribbon I got from Close to My Heart. It's perfect for cards just like this one. I decided to overlap two different types of ribbon and I love the look! I added little punched out flowers on the cake with pearls in the centers and embellished the card with ivory roses -- this has become an essential embellishment on my cards lately!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Love the burlap too. Adds a little bit of masculine to the card because we all know it's not just about the bride at a wedding...or is it? Great job. Thanks for sharing with us at TSOT.

  2. Fabulous card! I love the burlap and the colour combo you have used. This is super cute and will be cherished by the recipient for sure :) Thanks for joining us this week at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.
