Sweet Stampin' ~ Weddings

Hey there lovely crafty pals. I'm back tonight with a DT post for Sweet Stampin'. We have a lovely theme this week, which is 'Weddings'. I am sharing the card I created for one of my cousin's weddings. Not a lot of stamping on this one, as I went for a lot of intricate cutwork in the design. I'd love to say this was from a gorgeous die that I bought, but actually, I was far more frugal than that. I kept this beautiful wrap from a pretty product box, knowing it would come in handy one day and I think it was perfect for my cousin's wedding card. I'd been looking for the right card to use it on for ages!


I inked the edges and added the wrap over some pretty vintage rose paper that I had in my stash. The central panel was cut out, where the product label had been, so I layered up some sizzix label diecuts, first in the vintage rose paper, then in a lovely pearlescent cardstock, which I then stamped the Magnolia Stamps sentiment onto, in a soft pale ink tone. I wanted it to have a soft finish, so chose a Memento Ink colour called Desert Sand.


I wrapped a dusky pink satin ribbon around the wrap, tied a simple bow and then added a sweet little resin bloom in the middle of the ribbon. It's such a simple design really, but with that beautiful cutwork wrap, it really looks something special I think. 


The rest of the design team have been hard at work with their creations and they're just fabulous! So do stop in and check out their gorgeous designs, you're sure to leave inspired! I'd love to see what you're inspired to do when you're creating for weddings. 


So I hope you'll come join the fun with us. Remember to do some stamping as we are a 'stamping' challenge. Mine was minimal this week, just the sentiment, but it counts, as it's definitely stamping. I'll be back again soon with another crafty adventure, until then, have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting. Hugs, Wends xoxo
