First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage....

My niece is being married this coming July and she asked me to make her wedding invitations.  This is the design she and her fiancee chose.  Flowering Flourishes were stamped in Always Artichoke on Very Vanilla and the color of the ink is Early Espresso.  You can't see it but the vines were stamped in Illuminate over the writing on the invitation itself.  It really added  to the over all look!  They didn't want a traditional RSVP card and have a web site set up for the big day.  Guests can RSVP on-line.  They also put their phone numbers for those who don't use a computer.  In today's "techno" world, this does make sense!

Secret Garden

I saw this card at Leadership and thought liked the technique on the flowers.  They are embossed with white embossing powder, then "washed" with Tangerine Tango and an Aquapainter.  After it dried, I added some darker tones of Tangerine Tango before die cutting them with the framelits.  I played around with the Apothecary Accents for the bottom edge of the Whisper White piece.
