Wedding day card using Creative Elements by Stampin' Up

You may have spotted the beautiful Creative Elements stamp set on Stampin' Up's Retired List? Well I thought it would be perfect for a special wedding card as we move into  'I do' season. Come and see:


The gorgeous flourish from Creative Elements is perfect for creating a subtle, delicate background. I used Soft Sky ink (something blue!) and coloured it with an aquapainter. Then it was time to add some shine!


The ornate frame was stamped onto vellum and heat embossed with gold embossing powder for an elegant sheen. I added the sentiment from Petite Pairs, using my stamp-a-majig to make sure I got it in exactly the right position, and cut the whole thing out with my sharp paper snips.

I'll be linking this card up with Make My Monday where wedding cards are this week's challenge; The Paper Players where the theme is Wedded Bliss; and CASology where the cue word is Shine.

According to my youngest son, Wednesday was National Hug a Cat day! He announced this as he came bounding in from school and you could just see the tip of Tuppence's tail as she whisked out of the cat flap. My son's exuberant hugs are endearing but perhaps not if you're a cat!

See you tomorrow,
