Wedding Card

Was asked by a friend to make this card for a couple getting married today.  I decided to ink up my brand new Waltzing Mouse Stamps and even though my matching Spellbinders nesties haven't arrived yet I decided to hand cut the stamped image and cut the oval out with a craft knife.
Firstly I printed the names and sentiment using Word onto white cardstock. I then used a stamp from the WMS Vintage Labels 2 set and stamped using Memento black ink. I then stamped the image again on the same white cardstock.  Cut out both stamped images and removed the oval from the blank image so that the sentiment is visible through the opening/aperture. I then used a black copic marker to go around the cut edges of all the images to "finish off". This is a trick I learnt from my friend Kathy.

I adhered the top image directly over the bottom one with pop dots/dimensional adhesive.  I tied sheer white ribbon by Anita's around the card and then adhered the stamped images on top.

I added tiny heart shaped gems to the card to give it a little sparkle.  Congrats to the newly wed couple and thanks for peeking.

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.
