Wedding Love Birds


I made another wedding card to add to my stash, and this time I used a Gina Marie Flourished Swans die. The Coastal Cabana embossed "water" was done with a new SU! "Seaside" embossing folder, while the frame was done with a retired SU! "Tulips" embossing folder. The silver-embossed sentiment was done with a retired SU! set called "Well Scripted." The flourishes were done with a Cheery Lynn die; separated and randomly placed to fill in the lower portion of the card. The tiny white flowers were done with a SU! mini flower punch and I added white pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty to the centers. The final touch was to add a little color to the faces of the swans.

I'm sharing this with the Words 2 Craft by W2CB #30 challenge which is "New Beginnings."

I'm also taking it over to show Parsnip and the gang at the Snippets Playground #233 which always requires us to use our snippets.

Thanks for stopping by and make this a great day whatever you do!

LOL, same die, same day! I feel like I am following you around so I will not do mine for the Playground. This is so beautiful, Carol. Keep cool!

Carol, This is absolutely gorgeous! The dies that you have used are so pretty, and those sweet swans just pop off that coastal-cabana-seaside-embossed panel. Thanks for a great idea for using that already-in-my-stash new folder. And, thanks so much for joining our New Beginnings Challenge at Words 2 Craft By. :)

Just about as lovely as can be, Carol. You do such a great job with those little flowers with the gem centers and the tiny amount of curling to bring them right off the card. Have a wonderful week ahead.

Wow Carol, this is stunning. The swans are beautiful and they look perfect on the embossed water background. I love the pretty flowery flourishes as well.

Very elegant. I just placed an order at this place, after hearing another blogger say how much she liked GM dies. You've made these 2 pretty swans so beautiful with the textures, the aqua background swirls, and the delicate vine trims on the corner. The SU tulip EF works perfectly on this pretty card. TFS & have a great week
