On Your Wedding Day

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with another white on kraft card for the MFP Speedy Fox and Friends challenge.  I love the look of this color combination so much that I thought I would try making a wedding card with it....since I will have need of one of those next month for the son of some friends. 

I used my Mark's Finest Papers Lily of the Valley stamp set.  Do you like how it turned out heat embossed on the kraft?  I really do.  I used my very favorite white embossing powder: 
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular.  Love the fabulous clean white it gives me.  I did the butterflies on the vellum with the same EP, too.  

The background piece is from my DCWV Printed Burlap Paper Stack.  Love the floral print with the "white on kraft" look that echoes my stamping.  The burlap and the thrift store fiber yarn give just the right amount of natural texture for a rural Idaho wedding card.  The thrift store lace adds a feminine touch.  I mounted this all onto a textured eggshell white card base and then applied some adhesive pearls to help balance the design.

I was trying for a summer breeze blowing through an open window look with butterflies and flowers outside....that makes the oldie by Seals and Crofts - "Summer Breeze"  go through (the jasmine of) my mind!  I wish the white on white photographed better, but I love how the card turned out.  Hope you do, too!!

Hope you are having a good week!!!

Oh, this is exactly what your card looks like...a summer breeze blowing through the lace curtains! Those white embossed vellum butterflies are gorgeous and I am just going to have to steal this idea from you SOON! The kraft balances out all the white and is a wonderful contrast. Just gorgeous all the way around!

A great colour combination and the addition of the lace softens the burlap beautifully. Well Done. Thanks for joining us at Butterfly Challenge #33. Glenda

Hi, Janis! The white against kraft is so striking. What a wonderful design idea to show off textures. Thank you for giving me the inspiration to use fewer colors and let the pretty elements speak for themselves. Thank you, too, for a nice afternoon browsing your blog. I'm sorry about not visiting as often as I'd like these days. Thanks for understanding. hugs, de

So pretty, the burlap and the lace just make this card. That slightly rustic look is so popular for weddings right now. Love it. Thanks for sharing at MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends.
