CASology #147

The wedding card for the CASology challenge had to be extra special since it's for my grandson who is getting married on June 6.


When I visited Michele of I Card Everyone, she gave me this piece of embossed pink paper.  It's the perfect background for my card.  I used the roses from W & W, embossing them on vellum in white.  I thought they were a little too transparent so I rubbed my PTI Fresh Snow on the back of the vellum and let it dry before die cutting.  I inked up a piece of watercolor paper with some Shabby Shutters Distress Ink for a pale green for the stems, which were just sliced off with my paper trimmer.  The banner and sentiment words are also from W & W and are embossed in silver.  You can see the difference between the vellum, one painted and one not.  I tucked in a couple of leaves but thought it still didn't look quite finished so I added the bow,.  I don't usually do bows on cards but in this case it was the finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by.  Your visits and comments are truly appreciated.

  2. Congratulations to your grandson. Your card is magnificent. I really love the bouquet you made, and the idea of inking the back of your vellum is brilliant. I need to remember to try that. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  7. This is gorgeous, Bobby! Love that pink paper and your gorgeous white roses. I like the idea of adding the white ink behind the vellum - it gives it a totally different look and adds such softness. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week! (And big congrats to your grandson!)
