June is for Weddings


June is for weddings, and my wedding card stash is depleted, so I knew it was time to get a few made. I used some pretty pre-embossed shimmery silver dsp by DCWV that seemed perfect for special occasion cards like weddings. I paired it with some very pastel pink cardstock from my stash. I stamped flowers from the SU! Petite Petals set with versamark and embossed them with silver. I used a coordinating SU! punch to cut them, and added some pretty rosette stickers from the Paper Studio. The flourish was done with a die by Cheery Lynn and was cut with my Big Shot. I used a snippet of shimmery grey cardstock which blended well with the dsp. The tag was done with a SU! scalloped top tag punch, and the sentiment was silver embossed with a SU! retired set called Whimsical Words. A snippet of satin ribbon and silver twine finished this card.


This one is slightly different as I used one large flower from the SU! Flower Shop set, along with 2 smaller ones from Petite Petals. I used coordinating punches for both sizes to cut them out after embossing them with silver embossing powder. This card includes a darker grey cardstock flourish, and I angled it differently for a varied look from the card above.

I'm sharing over at the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge which has a theme this week of  "wedding." You must use a manual die-cut machine to create your cards for this challenge, and I used my Big Shot to cut the flourishes

Thanks for stopping by and may today be a great kick-off to a wonderful weekend for you! Enjoy!

They are outstanding. The perfect wedding card. It might be worth marrying Jack all over again to get a card like this beauty. LOL I adore that soft pink with the silver/gray. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Gor-Jus! Haven't seen this lovely embossed paper on my travels, but it sure is pretty. How amazing it fits with the pastel flowers from SU too. (well, you knew that!) - These cards are just so elegant, richly detailed, and even though I'm not a 'tag person', the way you've used the tags here, is just so pretty and perfect. You're building that stash real well. TFS & Hugs
