Wedding in black and white

Hello all,

Just a quick project update. 

We are going to a wedding and I had to make a card.  I have never done a black and white card and wanted to step out of my box.  I also wanted to give it a modern twist.  I usually like more traditional items, but I have to say I really like the stripes and the modern bride and groom.  So here are the tips I have for this project. 

Michaels has their own brand of paper.  It is 65lb weight.  I used my 40% off coupon and bought a pack of assorted black and white patterned paper.  Less than three dollars.  That is where the striped paper came from. 

I used the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge, after cutting the layer wedding dress in white, I put it through my Sizzix with a Cuddle Bug embossing folder.

Also I trimmed the envelope with a piece of the stripped paper.  I think it adds alot.

Tell me what you think.

  1. Love this card. Love the sentiment inside, is that a SU sentiment?

    Don't know why I could not leave a comment through Google. Just in case your wondering who this is, it is Donna.
