Wedding Day Wishes

My son asked me to make a card for a friend's wedding at the end of August. Several new items from Papertrey Ink were sitting on my desk so I decided to incorporate them into the design. The wedding invitations had a white and deep burgundy colour scheme, so that was the colour inspiration for this card:

I'm really loving the new Vineyard Impression Plate from PTI.
It's so detailed and adds a lot of dimension to a clean and simple card.

Front  Details:  (all PTI unless noted)
~Scarlet Jewel card base
~Vineyard Impression Plate on Stamper's Select White card stock
~Leafy Vine Border using Scarlet Jewel; edges of vine were sponged with Fresh Snow ink.
~DayDreamer images stamped with Close to My Heart Vineyard and Garden Green Inks
~The flowers were hand cut and added with foam dimensionals. 
~Mini white pearls  (Kaisercraft) were added to each flower image.
~Sentiment panel was made with the  Friendship Jar Label die and frame stamp.
~Sentiment from Delighful Dahlia.

Here's the inside of the card:

Inside Details:
I used a sentiment  from Day Dreamer and then repeated the 
floral images from the card front in Vineyard and Garden Green.

Thanks for visiting today. Have a great week.

Very pretty and elegant. That IP does look great.

Joyce said...

So beautiful. I think I need to get that IP. Somehow, it has escaped my notice, until just now. Very striking.

Very elegant. Love the inside sentiment. I too like to incorporate the couple's color scheme in my cards.

Perfect elegant wedding card, Karen! And wow, that impressed background is beautiful!

Stephanie said...

Karen.........Your card is absolutely lovely!! Perfect wedding card!

I love the look of dry embossing for wedding cards... so elegant and lovely!

Jen said...

Just flawless. I think it is so clever and thoughtful of you to incorporate the burgundy. It is so ruch and luxe not to mention works so wonderfully with the white. Even though I just ordered at release time, I now feel itchy to place another one because Daydreamer is now callin' my name. Ugh!
