Nicole & Jim’s wedding card

Nicole's card

My beautiful downline and friend Nicole Bertrand (now Keeler!) just got married, and I knew I had to make a special wedding card for the happy couple!  The couple's wedding colors were Gumball Green, Basic Black and Whisper White, so I followed that for their card.  I don't have much in the way of overtly wedding stamps, but many of our pretty images can work quite nicely.  I based this card on Creative Elements stamp set.  With eight different images that coordinate beautifully, it was easy to add some different layers.  And good news – this great set is carrying over to the new 2013-14 Annual Catalog!

  • I stamped the flourish image in VersaMark Ink, used Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool to heat emboss for a nice, shiny black.
  • Gumball Green circle is punched with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch.
  • I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce around the Gumball Green circle.  It doesn't show up well in the picture, but it adds a lot!
  • Basic Black card stock strip has a punched edge with Scallop Trim Border Punch.
  • "Congratulations" comes from Sweet Essentials stamp set.  Both it and the decorative line are stamped in StazOn and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Don't forget to use your Powder Pal so that the embossing powder doesn't cling where you don't want it.
