Wonderful Wirral weather … nice day for a white wedding…

Not to burst into song, but oh what a beautiful morning!  The sun is shining brightly and the breeze is warm – what a great day for a wedding!

I used naturals ivory cardstock for the card base, added a layer of brushed gold cardstock and printed a computer generated sentiment onto very vanilla cardstock.  The hearts were also punched from brushed gold cardstock.

It’s very difficult to see in the photographs, but there is a line of stamping using the brand new illuminate pigment ink available in the Stampin’ Up! autumn winter catalogue, which is so beautiful in real life.  It is almost like a watermark, but then has a gorgeous sheen to it – not quite a sparkle, more like a beautiful glow … very pretty.

I added a length of gold ribbon from my stash and some adhesive pearls for an added touch of luxury.

The bride and groom could not have asked for a better day weatherwise – I am sure they will have a fabulous day.

And in complete contrast to the beautiful day we have today, a few days ago I had a lovely little visitor to my very rain-soaked Wirral garden …

He seemed to really enjoy the scraps of bacon rind I’d put out on the lawn for the birds!

Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!

cardstock: very vanilla, naturals ivory, brushed gold; stamp sets: sweet swirls wheel; ink: illuminate; punches: large heart; accessories:  adhesive pearls, stampin’ dimensionals, mini glue dots, ribbon from my stash.

 

Thanks for dropping by today
