A friend at work needed a wedding this is what I came up with.

The card is almost a whole 8.5 x 11 piece of card stock folded in half... so it is a bit bigger than I usually make. It is also a Gate fold styled card.

I got this idea from LYNN PRATT'S BLOG She has a free template of the dress and shirt top you can download and print off. Easy Peasy...thanks Lynn!

I used the now retired Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Paper and sponged it with Blushing Bride ink. I layered this onto the black gate fold card base.

The dress was cut out with Whisper White card stock and the dress overlay is Vellum card stock. Both pieces were embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the new Petite Pairs stamp set in the new Catalog. I made some paper flowers from the Blushing Bride card stock as an embelishment.

Here is the inside of the card.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Petite Pairs
Paper: Basic Black, Presto Patterns DSP, Whisper White, Vellum
Ink: Blushing Bride, Black Staz-on
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper & Framed Tulips Embossing Folders, Decorative Label Punch, Pearls, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Dimensionals, Sponges, Rhinestones

Thanks for looking today!
