Last weekend we we fortunate enough to be invited to the wedding of the lovely Kate and Duncan. Weddings are such a significant occasion, so I always feel like it's a great privilege to be invited to share in them!
Obviously, I needed to make a Wedding card. Luckily I had received some preview stamps from the new Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalogue, which begins in August. This stamp set, Always, seemed perfect for the occasion. I made up a few different cards because I couldn't get them to look exactly as I wanted, so I kept experimenting.
To get the overlapping heart images, I stamped and embossed one heart, then masked it with a post-it note, and stamped the second heart. I wanted to keep the colour scheme classic and elegant, so went with Whisper White, Soft Sky and silver embossing powder. The white half pearls are from the pretties kit, and the "always" greeting is layered using the circle punches and scallop circle punch.
The second card is similar, but also uses the Linen background stamp and the word "Cherish" (sorry, it's a bit obscured down the bottom!) from the Warm Words set. I popped up the little flowers on dimensionals to add some depth to the card.
Which one do you like best? Leave a comment to let me know, then in a couple of days I'll tell you which one I decided to give to the bride and groom!
