For the Bride

What better thing to do on a cold overcast Saturday afternoon than to play with stamps and make cards!!!

Carolina kindly let me borrow her new stamp sets while she is in sydney for the weekend, so gotta make the most of them.
This set For the Bride is just stunning. I was looking at them and thought, I can't wait to see this embossed!! and that I did. You can't tell the detail too well from the photo, but it is embossed in choc chip. The card stock is Whisper white as the base and I used the Paisley retired background stamp in Sahara sand ink.
The congratulations is embossed in metalic bronze for a bit of sparkle!!


This is another that I did and I love it!! (so humble!) It is white card stock as the base and what a fluke that I found out!!! I had a little let over sahara sand ink on my En Francais Background Stamp that I didn't know was on there and put the versa mark on and stamped it and look at that! It came up a light red/pink colour, which was just right for the card.
The bride is embossed in black and I added the red heart brad. In the scalloped edge there are holes which I placed a strip of red cardstock on.
The congratulations stamp is embossed in white diamonds on black card stock and cut with the word window.
Very exciting!! Hope to hear from you all!

  1. OMG Kylie-Jo, those bridal cards are to die for. They are rich, elegant and I love the colouring in them both. May have to see who has this set lying around so that I may have a play too and see what I can come up with LOL.
