While visiting June Knaack at her stamp store (1870's Shoppe) in Zoar, Ohio this weekend, I took photos of a few of her new creations with the Cuttlebug embossing folders & Spellbinder Nestabilities diecuts ... then using that as inspiration, did my own version.
My White Wedding card is very similar to what June had on display. Although she had additional hearts on the front and pearls on the inside hearts on her creation. I chose to keep everything Whisper White with the exception of the sentiments. The images used on all three of these wedding card designs are from Inkadinkado.
After making the pristeen all white card, I wanted to try a few other ideas. For instance, why not sponge the hearts with a little soft Pink Pirouette ink for just a touch of color and then run it through the Cuttlebug or leave it plain. Or in this case, both! I also ran the card front through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder. For an additional embellishment, I punched 3 butterflies from Pink Pirouette cardstock & one of the Martha Stewart butterfly punches.

Then I got really brave and created a Black & White Wedding creation! I actually think this looks quite elegant ... what do you think??? The only panel I embossed was the black matting heart and it was run through with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. I also used a small sponge & Versafine black ink to make the shadowing around my Mr. & Mrs. sentiment. My embellishments are The Paper Studio half pearls and Martha Stewart birds.
Oh ... did I mention that both hearts are popped up on dimensionals???
So that's what I was doing this afternoon. We were hoping to have some friends visit but DH wasn't feeling all that well today so we've asked them to come another day. Tomorrow is Mark's PetCT Scan ... pray it comes back CLEAR. Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
