A Pair of Congratulations

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend!  Ours was quite busy with super heroes (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and lots of flowers {real and fake kind, in a fantastic light display}.

I have a pair of wedding cards to share with you today.  They are slightly different, but I love how they turned out.

First up, is the traditional black tuxedo and white gown.  I used designer papers from Bo Bunny Enchanted for the background.  The “couple” is on a Stitched Circle.  For her gown, which you cannot see and it was impossible to photograph, I cut out numerous swirls {with the swirl die included in the set} from white glitter paper.  Because of the intricate swirls and the glitter, I wasn’t able to get rid of the little bits of Xyron adhesive without ripping the swirls, so I opted to put a vellum overlay over her dress and added in a waistline of pearls.  The sentiment is from Flourishes Taglines.

For my second card, I upped the elegance just a bit more.  It’s a black card base with a mat of Curious Metallic Gold Leaf.  From that mat, I cut Pierced Rectangle and then covered that hole with a piece of Vintage Cream that was stamped with the Romantic Script Background in Brilliance Galaxy Gold.  For the bride’s dress, I cut it from Vintage Cream and then an overlay of ivory lace vellum, which is so pretty and only faintly seeable.  Again, I added in a waistline of gold pearls and along the neckline.  The sentiment is from Jolinne Winter Recital. I added in a pretty double sided bow of gold to finish it off.  LOVE how this turned out!
