Tulle & Lace

We're focusing on Weddings this week over at Card A Day Blog.  This is always such a fun theme because, while the card is meant for the newlywed couple, you can still be girly.  I found two beautiful digital images that I wanted to feature on this card...an ATC background from Victorian Vignettes and the lovely lady from The Sum of All Crafts.

The Details:
  • Starting with Sahara Sand card stock from Stampin' Up!, I stamped a French script background in white pigment ink.  
  • I then printed the ATC background to be approx. 3.75" x 5", distressed  and inked the edges, then stamped the same French script in Versamark and embossed with opaque white embossing powder.
  • On top of the ATC background, I layered the fussy cut lady image and a strip of Sahara Sand that was stamped with the French script in Versamark and scalloped along the bottom edge.
  • Congratulations is stamped in Jet Black StazOn and is accentuated by a strip of crocheted lace and a line of pearls
  • Our lovely lady did not start out as a bride...I made her one by adding a double layer of tulle along the top of her bun, then adding a strip of pearl stickers and some dollops of Liquid Pearls as the headdress.  I even gave her a pearl earring.
  • The finishing touch is a puffy satin heart (from a heart chain ribbon) that was antiqued with Old Paper Distress Ink and layered with a heart rhinestone.
