Wedding card

My cousin is getting married in Marseille, France in 10 days. Sadly I can’t attend as I’m organising our school’s largest fund raising event of the year on the same weekend! I am going to London for her hen’s night this weekend though and I am super excited about it! She has a fabulous night lined up for us and I am going to enjoy eating great Asian food and visiting the Tate Gallery! I will definately post some pics next week when I get back.

As her wedding will be pastel themed, and she is inclined more towards artsy than flowers, I went through tons of methods to try and create a beautiful pastel background card WITHOUT flowers. Here is what I decided to give her.

I made the background with pearl pens! I just dotted pearls all over the card and used my fingers to smear them and went over it with the back of my water pen! I first tried using another card stock to flatten the pearl dots but I forgot they have some sort of glue in them and when I lifted the card, it ended up taking half the paper with it! Lol! I stamped the sentiment from Justrite “Wedding wishes vintage” collection with Momento Tuxedo black ink. To get the clear black background I stamped it twice with my new MISTI!! (Love it!). I cut out the circle with my Sizzix circle dies before adhering it in the middle. I then mounted the card on a black card stock to give it an elegant look.

I’m not sure if the card is a completely pastel theme in the end, as the green turned out darker once I smeared it. But I love the look and I hope she will love it too!
