Happy Wedding Day

We had the pleasure of attending a special friend's wedding on the weekend.  It was a joy and a blessing to see how happy they are together.

I wanted to make an elegant, yet simplified card and here is what I came up with.
I began with a piece of white cardstock.  I place my Mini Lace stencil from TCW over the paper and pressed on some Versamark ink over it being sure to get into all the corners and edges.
I sprinkled on some shiny silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.
Next, using my Misti, I stamped the 'Congratulations' sentiment across the bottom and I splattered some silver paint over the stenciled area as well.
 I die-cut the Olive Branch and the Berry Branch with more white cardstock and glued them onto the front.  I tied a piece of silver ribbon at the top to add to interest and more shine.

Instead of putting the card into an envelope, I created a small box to place it in.
I stamped it using a large floral image, then tied it up with more silver twine and a congrats die-cut.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Oh my goodness... both card and box are gorgeous. Of course white is appropriate for a wedding any time of year, but initially (before I read your post or looked super close) I saw this as a winter scene-- well done! Simply beautiful. Thanks for sharing at SOS this week... always inspiring projects from you!
