Best of Brides - Technostamper #269

Summer has barely started and we're in the middle of a heat wave.  This is the third day that the thermometer has been over 32 degrees C.  Today, with the humidity, it's supposed to feel like 40 degrees!  It's also raining, so you can imagine the humidity levels.

I am doing a craft show on Sunday, and needed some wedding cards.  Black and white is very popular with brides, so I chose that colour scheme.  I used the sketch with TSSC here


I started with a Basic Black cardstock base, which I layered with Very Vanilla card stock and then Modern Medley DSP.
Then I used the reverse side of the DSP to make the strip in the lower part of the card.  This was matted with Basic Black cardstock, and a strip of scallopped very vanilla card stock was attached to its lower end.  A piece of 1/8" Black taffeta ribbon was attached to the middle of this strip.

The image was stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with silver embossing powder.  The groom's suit was coloured black, the brides's hair blonde, and small pearls were placed in each flower of her bouquet.  Dazzling details was added to the outline of the dress.
The image panel was matted with black card stock and adhered to the card as shown above, using dimensionals.

Two circles were punched for the embellishment - a 1 1/4" black, and a 1" Very Vanilla.  Three Vanilla flowers were adhered to this circle and dazzling diamonds adhered to the top (using the 2 way glue pen).  This embellishment was attached to the left edge of the image panel in the middle.
