Dum dum da dum...

I made this card for dear friends of ours who got married a few weeks ago. I needed inspiration and so I turned to the trusty PTI Gallery and this card by Lauren Meader caught my eye. It initially caught my eye cuz of the color, sorta what I was looking for since I try and match the card to the wedding colors.

The colors for the wedding were platinum and ivory. So I started with SU! Very Vanilla. Then I found this really pretty designer paper and followed Lauren's general design. I couldn't figure out how to make the cutout so I just used my punches.

I wanted to accentuate some of the pattern so I used my Versamark pen, and traced parts of the paper I wanted highlighted. Then used Silver Moon/Mistletoe Moonglow embossing powder - w/o embossing- to give it all a very soft glow.

Here's a close-up of the effect:
I'm a big fan of subtle accents I've noticed. :).
Here's a close-up of the "seal" that I embossed with regular silver embossing powder
I also wanted to thank everyone who stops by and comments (and even if you don't)... I wish I could give each of you a HUG!

Fine Print:
Stamps: PTI B&C Monogram Edition
Paper: SU! Very Vanilla CS, Deja Views Wedding Cream Paisley DP
Ink: Palette Charcoal
Accessories: Versamark Pen, Silver & Silver Moonglow embossing powders, Marvy Giga Scallop Punch, Marvy Mega Circle Punch, Marvy Jumbo Circle Punch, Misc. gray Satin ribbon

Thanks for Looking!!
