Navy & Silver Wedding


I made this wedding card for my husband's co-worker.  Everyone at his work was chipping in for a gift, but he told them that we would contribute a handmade wedding card to go with the gift.  Naturally, this bit of information came to me at the last minute so I whipped something up quickly -- a bit of stamping and embossing, finished off with some ribbon did the trick.

The gorgeous medallion-like images are from "French Quarter" by Inque Boutiue, a stamp company that is no longer in business.  Does anyone remember Inque Bouttique stamps?  I have several of their stamps because a few months before they went out of business I won $100 worth of their stamps.  Even though they are not current I still love many of those stamps and try to remember to pull them out once in a while.

I'm entering this into the current Crazy for Challenges #131 -- to use blue and white with one other color.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!






Stamps:   French Quarter (inque boutique), Giga Guidlines (PTI)
Paper:  watercolor paper
Ink:   Paris Dusk (memento), versamark
Other:  silver EP, silver ribbon, enchanted evening button (PTI)

This is such a beautiful card. It does not look like you just whipped it up. Too bad a company that made such beautiful stamps went out of business.

Such an elegant card, perfect for a wedding. I love how you did the ribbon with the two rows and then that fabulous bow with the gem in the center, so beautiful.

Sara! Thank you so much for your sweet note on my blog! I am so happy to be back creating! Everyone else has said it, so I'll 8th the notion: What an elegant card! I love that giant image (I have some Inque Boutique stamps--I didn't know they'd gone out of business!) paired with the *double* row of ribbon and giga sentiment! I can't believe you just whipped it up, it looks so professional. Terrific!
