Bloomin’ Heart, Falling in Love Wedding Card

May 30, 2017

A friend’s lovely daughter got married at the weekend and this was the card I made for the happy couple. I’d saved the paper from the Falling in Love designer paper pack (I’ll really miss these gorgeous papers) because I knew pink would feature in the wedding theme! However I used the soft pretty new In Color Powder Pink ink sponged on the edges of the petals instead of Blushing Bride. I don’t think the shimmery white card shows at all well in the photo – it looked quite pretty in real life!

The wedding was a very joyous occasion – the bride looked beautiful in her stunning dress, she and the groom wore the biggest smiles, the ceremony was personal and really lovely, the flowers were fabulous and the whole event was wonderful.

Card: Shimmery White, Vellum, Falling in Love DSP
Stamp Pads: Powder Pink, Versamark

Thinlits: Bloomin’ Heart
Other: Copper embossing powder, basic rhinestones
