Stamping 411 – Wedding Sweet


Again…I LOVE this Wedding Sweet set!  It makes such elegant cards, not just for weddings!  Stay tuned in a few weeks, because I will be featuring this set on the Royal Blog Tour on July 26-28, too!  For today, I am using the sketch from Stamping 411.  I think the simplicity of this sketch adds to the elegance of this card!

I hadn’t used the new In Color, Bermuda Bay, yet, so I pulled it out to use it.  I also hadn’t used my Movers & Shapers XL Die, so I decided to use it, too!  I started with a base of Bermuda Bay, then added a layer of Basic Gray.  On top of that, I stamped Whisper White with Bermuda Bay ink using the large floral stamp from Wedding Sweet.  I added the Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Ribbon across the bottom of the front and then stamped Thank You from that set on scrap Whisper White.  I used the Curly Label punch and punched out the Thank You greeting.  The Movers & Shapers diecut mats behind the Curly Label punch perfectly, and it added just the right amount of definition around the greeting.  Finally, I wanted to add a bow, but a regular knot looked too fussy.  So, I did the loop bow…it adds just the right touch!

Make sure to check out the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators design work and play along by using this week’s sketch!  We love to see what you do with the sketch inspiration!
