Congratulations to the all the NEW Mr. and Mrs.’s out there! (not sure Mrs.’s is an actual grammatical proper term to use in the plural form, but I did) hope all the great English teachers out there oversee my “new term.”
Aren’t weddings just wonderful? Two people madly in love wanting to share their commitment to each other for the rest of their lives. It is such an honor to get to be invited and the opportunity to share with them their love and happiness on their very special day. I love weddings. This card went out to a precious couple, my dear friend’s son handsome son, Ryan and his beautiful wife, Kelsey a few months back and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all! I’m happy to give you the scoop on how this card came together…here ya go!
Debbie Details – also known as Debbie’s (deets!) – This card was created with a little bling in mind. So I chose the oh so beautiful Dazzling Diamonds (doesn’t that sound SO “dazzling?” and with the word diamonds in it, too?!)designer series paper (DSP) in the 12″ X 12″ pack, it’s gorgeous! Page 149, annual catty. It looks like it is the Silver dsp in the photo, but it’s the dazzling diamonds paper. It is so pretty and just really adds some sweet elegance to this beautiful black card stock and card design. While you cannot “see” too well here in the photo, it is layered with another smaller piece of black card stock. I layered that piece with Stampin dimensionals to bring it up of the base and it makes it really special. The stamp set, oh the stamp set….such a beautiful Wedding stamp set and the fonts in the various stamps are just brimming with elegance! How exciting to give this the lovely couple on their Wedding Day because you know by the time they receive and open it up they will already be “Mr. and Mrs.!” I can remember back in the dinosaur ages when Tommy and I married (what a lucky guy!) and after the wedding and honeymoon we gratefully opened each and every card with tender loving care, there some of the cards were addressed “Mr. and Mrs.” and I was taken back a bit, because I was NOW a MRS.! What a wonderful feeling that was and is still, a card addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Dean! (smile!) ~ So, THIS was my thought that when the happily ever after couple saw their envelope with this beautiful Mr. and Mrs.stamped sentiment they would be taken aback, too, like we were all those many years ago. Wait until I show you the envie! So genius of me. yes.
This lovely stamp set is called For the New Two. This card put together fairly quickly. I used the Lots of Labels frame lits on my magnetic platform to hold them securely in place and zipped them thru Mr. Big Shot! I stamped the whisper white scrap of card stock and then cut it to where I liked it and corner rounded it with our trusty little corner rounder. He’s so cute. I wanted this piece to be “rounded” because to coincide with the “rounded” ness of the frame lits. See it? I layered them all up with those little dimensionals and punched a darling little black flower with the itty bitties punch (cute, cute punch combo set!), and HAD to put a bit more BLING in the center with a beautiful diamond. Yes, a beautiful diamond. Do you like it? Okay, our beautiful dazzling rhinestones! I then layered the INSIDE with a whisper white layer and used one of the sentiments for the inside of it to go to this sweet couple.
BUT, to complete this stunning, “glimmery” card, I lined the envelope with the Dazzling Diamonds designer series paper using my go to Envelope Liners (sort of a must to complete the card) and addressed it with the “Mr. and Mrs.” stamp on the outside and below it I wrote his full name on it. It was so pretty and I hope they loved receiving it as much as I enjoyed making it for them. I love “hand stamped,” “hand made” ANYTHING. Don’t you? So special. Look, here’s the outside FLAP of the envelope! Don’t forget that part, too!! 🙂 Hope you enjoyed today’s card and it really came together quickly, I had an hour to get it done before leaving for the wedding! That’s how quick it was.
