Elegant Love Card


I made this card to use for a wedding or anniversary.  I wanted something elegant and not too complicated.

Instead of using patterned paper I created the background with the Dainty Flourish stamp from SP & Company.  I stamped it repeatedly using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  That patterned layer is 4 by 5 and 1/4.

The teal ribbon is from Celebrate It by Michael's.

The tag shapes were cut from my Silhouette Cameo.  The bling is from the $1 section.

The love sentiment is from SP & Company's I Love Love set, stamped in Taken With Teal ink by Stampin Up.
You can see the sparkle a little better in this photo if you enlarge it.
I also used lots of Star Dust Stickles around the edges of the patterned layer and also the white area of the tag.  It really didn't photograph well, but adds an awful lot to the card in person.

Thanks for visiting!  I'm glad to be getting back to crafting :)
