My son asked me if I would make him a wedding card for a wedding he will be part of and usher for in November for his close friend and long time high school friend. They have known each other for many years and he is blessed to have a nice group of young adults who get together often.
I must say I do love making wedding cards as they are so pretty in all white and gray embossing ink. However, I do know that it is extremely difficult to photograph all white. It seems the color wants to look gray in my photos.
I embossed the verse in a gray iridescent embossing powder. I also used micro fine glitter from Glitter Ritz on the bottom of the card and burnished it with micro fine iridescent glitter. I only wish the photo could show off how pretty the glitter really looks. Then adding lace and pearls to the card really make it feel festive to a wedding theme.
I thought you may want to read the inside. I almost always computer generate a verse in each of my cards. I always feel it makes them feel more personal.
The left top flowered applique looks gray. Trust me...it truly isn't? The photo just seems to want to look gray for whatever reason? If you really look close you will notice a pearl iridescent boarder around the top outer edge. I had some plane cards with only this pearl boarder around them, so I cut the Marianne Design embossing folder # D50908 a tad smaller and placed it inside of it and added pop up dots to add dimension. I think it adds a lovely touch with the pearl boarder outer effect?
It's my sincere pleasure to offer Josh and Charlotte a wonderful life time of love!
Congratulations to the lovely couple!
