Wedding card

I have been a bit distracted lately with the arrival firstly of my pre-order for the new annual catalogue and then a few days later with the pre-order for the Holiday Catalogue, both due to go on sale on September 1st. This means I have been thinking about and making samples for a catalogue launch, as well as finishing a lot of half done scrapbooking and cards. Only trouble is, I am never finished, because something new keeps getting started!

I think it is time for a challenge, and I have chosen the Dynamic Duos challenge: River Rock and Black with the option to use brads.

My wedding card is 5.25 inches square on a black base, with a second layer from River Rock in Neutrals designer series paper pack. The Very Vanilla has been stamped in River Rock ink with a floral design from Elements of Style (page 113) and a little greeting from a retired stamp. I mounted the Very Vanilla on a square of Basic Black card and lay a strip of black across the card too. On top of that is a strip of crochet ribbon, and a scattering of pearls on the flower centres.

Inside is fairly plain, just a strip of River Rock stripe scalloped and laid across the bottom of the Very Vanilla insert, and a greeting from Love and Laughter, which reappears in our annual catalogue on page 38. It was in our Autumn-Winter mini and must have proved its worth to be carried over. The greetings are useful for wedding and engagement cards, and I have even used the little trio of flowers to edge a birthday card.

Maybe you have been inspired to try this colour combination. Why not go to dynamic duos and check out the other submissions?

  2. This is a really beautiful wedding card, Rachel. I wouldn't have thought to use River Rock on a wedding card, but it looks gorgeous!
