Mr and Mrs!


I was asked recently if I could make a wedding card for a friend (hello Michael!). I was delighted to do so and rumaged around in my box (es!) of stamps to find a suitable one. As this card was from a bloke to his brother ..man to man....I din't want the image to be too girly or cute...but then again the card was for a wedding so had to be pretty but not too masculine.

So out came a very old ...but eminently suitable wood mounted 'Stampendous' stamp. This must have been one of the very first stamps I bought. Now I have a cupboard full :)

Having never attempted yet a WOW (white on white card) I knew that this was the perfect time! The image is coloured with prisma pencils and some stickles for her veil. The edging of the image is also done in stickles. I stamped the sentiment and the image in Memento Brown ink to give it a softer look. I have used a gorgeous doily and some embossed cardstock to make the base of the card. I have made some more of the rolled flowers.....coz I just love them! I then tied a bow with some organza ribbon, added a little ribbon slider and some lovely paper rose buds.

This card will be popping into my Etsy shop today!

Thanks for your visit....as always it is greatly appreciated!

This is so pretty yet masculine & those flowers are perfect for a Man to Man card - as is the image. There's the elegance that you need for a man & the ribbon with the rosebuds & slider a lovely touch without being too fussy for a man. I cannot get over those flowers & how effective they are.
