SBTD July Blog Hop Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement, Love

Welcome to the SBTD July Blog Hop and this month we are exploring Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement card designs as well as cards of love in general. It is always helpful to have one or two of these cards in your stash just in case you need them and I hope that our ideas and projects will help inspire you to create your own beautiful cards for these special occasions. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world as the share their creations with you today. 
 Today I decided to create a clean and simple wedding card using the color combination of Basic Black, Whisper White and Silver. I love the drama of this color combination and the beautiful die cut created with the Springtime Impressions Die set (item #146326) takes center stage for this design.
 The card base is one of the Silver Foil Edged Cards with the matching envelopes (item #147900) that are perfect for special occasion cards. I added a layer of Basic Black cardstock to create a matte for the Whisper White focal panel. I attached the Whisper White cardstock panel to the Basic Black cardstock matte with Snail adhesive and then attached the layers to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to add dimension. 
Using Snail adhesive, I attached the floral die cut to the Whisper White cardstock panel, allowing the edges to overhang slightly over the silver foil edge. To create the sentiment layer, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Cling stamp set (item #151407) with the new Shimmer Black Stampin' Embossing Powder (item #149512) onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. I love the sparkle that this embossing powder adds to the stamped image. I then die cut the sentiment using the smaller of the frames from the Frosted Bouquet Dies (item #151800) and layered it onto a label die cut with the larger of the frames from the same die set. 
 To finish of the card, I embellished the centers of some of the flowers of the die cut with Basic Rhinestones for a little bling. Using a piece of Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon (item #144213), I made a loop and attached it behind the sentiment label and attached the label to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
This card design is simple to create but has a definite Wow factor for such a special occasion. I love that even though the main image is floral, it is not overly frilly and girly so that it suits both the bride and the groom on their special day. I hope that you like my card design and I hope that it inspires you to explore your own creations. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
