STAMPlorations inspiration #18

"To have and to hold" - five words which no doubt immediately bring images of wedding to mind. I chose to concentrate completely on that sentiment from The Bee's Knees Newlyweds Extras for my wedding card.


I dry embossed a white panel after inking the raised areas with silver Delicata ink. Then I lightly applied gold Delicata ink to the raised hearts in the embossed pattern. After that I swiped the gold ink onto a scrap of white CS and heat embossed the sentiment.  Maybe you can see the gold and silver better in this photo...


I layered the sentiment with vellum and PP and adhered it to the panel which I then put onto a black cardbase.

Have you joined us over at STAMPlorations in the Inspiration CASE Playground yet this month? Need to make a wedding card? Why not CASE my card... gold, silver, black, white, flourishes, art deco ... so many elements to choose from to create your own card.

Or check out the inspiration from my teamies today. Or if you're feeling more "kraft-y", check out this month's CASEplorations post for inspiration and the prize deets.

I am hooking up over at MUSE #118 cuz I really liked Marion's light gray BG and black frame around her focal image. I just ended up tilting everything a bit.


Thanks for visiting today :)
