From This Day Forward!

My card today is for this week's technique challenge on SCS. This week the challenge is to create a Two Way Open card if you want more info on how to create this particular card you can find our here.

As some of you know one of my daughters is getting married near the end of the year so any type of wedding stamps attract me at present so when Flourishes came out with these sets I just had to order them. As they arrived yesterday and I discovered this challenge this morning I decided to make use of these stamps. Whether this will actually be my daughters wedding card I have no idea .... I will probably make a few more throughout the year and then decide which one I like the best.

For the front of this card I stamped the bride and groom onto white card and layered onto card using my rectangle nestabilities. I actually cut 2 scallop rectangles and layered them together so that I could hide the ribbon between the layers. The flower which also helps hide the ribbon on the left side has a slight tint of blue in it which is hard to tell in this photo. I will probably add some clear stickles to the brides dress ... I meant to do that earlier but only just realised as I am typing this that I hadn't as yet.

The DP I used on the front triangle is also attached to the inner triangle. I used the flourish that came with the wedding essentials set to stamp the lakeshore blue panel using blue bayou SU ink.
The 'Mr' & the 'Mrs' are stamped in black with the '&' being stamped so it overlaps using Sea Breeze Versamagic Ink. Again rectangle nestabilites were used to create the layers.


I used my square nestabilities to create my white scallop panel I also embossed the edges for this one and then stamped the verse in the centre using black ink.

Recipe:
Stamps: Wedding Party & Wedding Essentials - Flourishes
Paper: White; Lakeshore & Jetstream Bazzill card; DP - Unknown
Other: Black Ink; Sea Breeze VersaMagic Ink; Blue Bayou SU Ink; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Square & Rectangle Nestabilities; Blue Bayou Grosgrain Ribbon; Flower
