Elegant Wedding

Brien will be the best man in a wedding Saturday. Assuming I can find babysitting, I'll be attending as well (our sitters sort of fell through and now I'm scrambling). I needed a card for the happy couple and knew I wanted something understated and elegant.

Thinking "elegant", I promptly thought of my "Elegant Lines" embossing folder and from there the card simply gelled. :o) To set off the embossing, I decided to use dimensionals to give it a "lift".

My biggest problem was finding an appropriate stamp for the inside, as most of my sentiments, while having a nifty font, were too informal for this card. I came upon "Sincere Salutations" and knew it was perfect. :o)

This card uses:
Stamp Sets: "Teeny Tiny Wishes" (this is SO a "must have" set!), "Sincere Salutations"
Paper: Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Ink: Sahara Sand
Accessories: "Elegant Lines" embossing folder, pearls, dimensionals

I just LOVE how beautiful and simple this card is!

Rach - I love how simple and VERY elegant it is. I love the fact that you can change out the backing mat to be any color. How wonderful to see this embossing folder used to its full potential.

This card is absolutely beautiful!!! I love how crisp it is and the embossing (I gotta get a Big Shot). And yes, Teeny Tiny Wishes is a must. I love mine.
