Wedding Wishes

The several marriages for which I made this card are all surviving and thriving, so I like to think that more than good wishes go into the envelope with this one!  Black and White cards with minimal coloring are a favorite of mine, not only because they have such a wonderfully striking quality to them, but also because they are great for mass-produced cards.  Only six of the flowers in this floral carpet were colored with chalk – all of the rest were intricate enough to make their own statement.  With various changes via coordinating ribbons and cardstock, any color at all would work with this design.

Cardstock:         Beckett Iceberg, Thai Silver Momi paper (gorgeous stuff:  feels just like fabric!)
Stamps:              Inkadinkado’s Flower Carpet
Inks:                   Document Black
Chalk:                 Bruynzeel Blue #877
Punch:                Fiskars Hearts Corner
Doo Dads:          Crystals in three of the flower centers, wire-edged Silver mesh and White organdy ribbon, Silver art deco button
