Elegant Ever After


Hi everyone! June is almost here and it's the time of year for brides and grooms to unite so I thought that I would start stocking up on wedding cards :) For this one, I used the JustRite Quiet Moments set from Stamper's Dream to create the sentiment in the middle of my engineered dies motif.

To create both the center piece and the gorgeous Fleur de Lis cut outs, I used the Fleur de Lis Doily Accents Shapabilities and cut apart some of them to make the circle creation. For the corner pieces and the border, I die cut some vellum and then ran it through my xyron to make it sticky so that I could add some transparent glitter. Now I have to admit that this was a bit tricky and got a little sketchy at times with me wearing more of the glitter than the vellum but I think that it was worth the effort because the end result is so soft and rich in real life (it was hard to get the sparkle in the picture).

To finish off the card I added some stitching and a handmade flower with a stick pin to some beautiful silk ribbon. I then added some wee little pearls and this card was finished off and ready to attach to a bridal present :)

Thanks for coming by today and I hope to see you around here again soon :)
