The Best Love Story

Hello, I'm back with another wedding card using some soft pink and grays.  I had some pretty rhinestones that matched the flourish above the stamp from the set Happily Ever After and I built my card from there.  The layers include a sheet from the Wedding Wishes paper collection under a gray die cut of the Scalloped Chain background die.





I hope you can play along with this month's challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge:  Color Challenge.  And if you'd like more inspiration, please check out by my talented Challenge Team sisters ChrisJulie, and Robin.  Remember that you have until July 1 to link to the ODBD blog.

Bride and Groom

I have another card to share with you with the new release from Our Daily Bread Designs this month. I used a LOT of die cuts on this - and no stamps actually.  I built my base layer by die cutting the Scalloped Chain out of the Wedding Wishes Paper and then glued it back on the same sheet to give it an embossed look.  In hindsight, embossing it with the die might have been easier!  Lol! Either way, it gives the paper a subtle texture that does not take away from the pattern.  I added a pop of colors with small roses and a swirl of greenery. The Bride and Groom was cut multiple times and then layered on top of the card base.

ODBD Color Challenge

So how many weddings have you attended?  Do they seem to all come at once for you?  I'm actually between wedding "seasons" but there is always anniversaries to celebrate.  I made this card for my stash from this month's release at Our Daily Bread Designs for the Shining the Light Color Challenge.


I am loving this background Scalloped Chain die - I paired it up with a soft pink background and silver glittery washi tape.  I continued with the silver theme by embossing the sentiment from the Happily Ever After stamp set with silver embossing powder.  I then die cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and a simple embellishment - a heart from Ornate Hearts die set covered with the same glittery washi tape.
