Black and White-Wedding Card


Hello there! I needed a wedding card and when I saw the challenge that Vicki chose for us this week at Just Us Girls I knew it would be perfect. I made a card similar to this one a few months ago and it was well received so I thought I would try it again. You can find it HERE!

Card Details: I have always been a huge fan of these old SU flowers. The sets that the flowers came from are called Flower Shop and Petite Petals. I paired them with some of the elements of the new Forever Fern stamps and dies. The greeting is from SU as well. I used white embossing powder on vellum with a grey back for my flowers and then white on white for the smaller centers of the flowers. These flowers compliment each other perfectly. Some gems for the centers. The DSP came from Hobby Lobby and I am using every scrap. Made the circle with a couple of Sizzix dies, and the victorian edge is done with my Fiskers cutter.

I hope you will stop on over to Just Us Girls and see what the fabulous team did this week along with our guest Claire!

Take care, Nanc’

  4. I love this. Pun intended, but also true!

  5. Such an elegant wedding card Nancy! I love those flowers and thought before I read your post that you’d repeat stamped the word ‘love’ for the background! The DSP is a much more convenient way to get the same result!! Vicky x

  6. Love the look of the flower border. Pretty wedding card

  7. You’ve reminded me that I really need to ink up my Flower Shop set Nancy! The bloom you’ve used is definitely my favourite in the set. Loving the script stamp as the backdrop too!

  8. This is so beautiful and truly elegant, so perfect for a wedding card! I love you flowers arranged around the edge of the circle frame and your love background strip. That decorative edge in black is the perfect touch. I hope life is getting better for you, keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. Nancy… you are right, those SU flowers are very versatile… and I love the pearl centers!

  10. Oh Nancy this is gorgeous in black and white and so very striking. Those SU flowers are a favourite of mine. Super layout with the love background and die cuts.

  11. I wouldn’t have know those were vellum flowers if you hadn’t said so, Nancy. They are lovely and look wonderful arranged along the edge of the cirlce.

  12. Wow those flowers are so pretty! Love how you backed them with gray cardstock. And those scissors! I haven’t used them in ages, but they still pack a punch! Beautiful card!
