Wedding card for FMS 382 and Dynamic Duos #49

I haven't used Basic Black and Basic Gray a great deal, but the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches combined with those challenge colors at  Dynamic Duos made me think - weddings.

My wedding cards are always very conservative (I think), not saying that it is a bad thing, a marriage is, after all, a very serious commitment, don't you think?

I didn't take up the dessert option of masculine in this case, but my card isn't particularly frilly and feminine either!
The first part of the greeting  was stamped onto Shimmery White card using one of a pair of stamps from the One In A Million stamp set.  I used two of the labels framelits to cut out that greeting for the top of the card. The other half of this pair, stamped on the inside reads,"Wishing You a Lifetime of Happiness". Some Basic Gray DSP from Twitterpated, which will most likely retire at the end of this catalogue, on June 30th is the main feature of the front of this card, trimmed with some Two-tone ribbon from the current mini catalogue, also finishing up on June 30th.

I stamped the flower from Creative Elements several times so I could fussy cut and layer them to place beside the label.

 Thanks for checking out my blog, please leave a comment if you wish and happy stamping!


  1. This is so pretty, Rachel. I love the monochromatic color scheme and the wide ribbon! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  2. I love the two different ribbons, but that flower is the definite star of the show! Beautiful! Thanks for playing at Dynamic Duos this week! ♥

  3. This is so pretty! I love the focal point on the top of the card, something I forget how much I like! Thanks for playing with the Dynamic Duos.
