Polka Dot Wedding

Hi All,

The other weekend I went to a wedding for good friends of ours. It was a small and simple ceremony but was very them. The bride was co ordinating everything in red so I decided when making them a card I would ensure it was in red. I did a little casing (but changed it up a little to suit myself) from the fab Rachel Capps who got the original card from Dawn. Thanks ladies for the ideas! Around the same time I opened my big mouth and was talked into doing a demo of the Faux metal technique at our team stamping day. I decided to incorporate the faux metal technique into the card and demo the technique on the card at the stamping day. And here's what I came up with

Simple but very elegant and could also be given as a valentines card or a simple I love you card. The bride of the wedding absolutly loved the card! Here's a close up of the faux metal medallion I made. I attached it with some silver rings and long nose pliars from my jewellry making days.

Stamp Set: Polka Dot Punches (SAB), In the Spotlight

Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red

Ink: Real Red, VersaMark

Accessories: White Taffeta Ribbon, Red Gingham Ribbon, Dimensionals, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Silver rings, Pliars

This week Mel Halon has a challenge on her blog to make a wedding card so I decided to enter this card as part of the challenge. as I did give it as a wedding card. Check out her blog for other simple but fun weekly challenges!

Thanks for looking!
