Today I want to share a very quick and easy, yet (I believe) elegant Wedding Card that I made a couple of days ago.
I used an ivory cardstock based, and then stamped the rose from “The Year of Flowers” stamp set (Gina K Designs) over the entire front of the cardstock. Because I wanted it to be very feint, I used Spun Sugar Distress ink.
Next I stamped my greeting in black. The stamp I used was from a wedding set made by Kaisercraft. I’ve had it sitting virtually unused for a couple of years.
The panel was made using the same ivory cardstock as the base, but I cut a piece a bit bigger than one third of the size of the front of the cardstock. I then embossed it with Cuttlebug D’vine Swirls, and rounded the corner with my corner punch.
This was placed using dimensionals. Last but not least, I had a scrap piece of very pretty ribbon that had been hanging around for ages. I made a bow with it, and stuck it on with a glue dot.
Believe it or not, this entire card was designed around that piece of ribbon. It was too short to do a lot with it, but since I loved it so much, I knew I simply had to use it.
Thanks for stopping by today. As always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!
Cheryl, this card is stunning. I can certainly believe a card was made around that bow. It is a very elegant card.

It certainly is elegant, Cheryl – I love the simplicity of it, but it is not simple – it is classy! TFS

Wow, simple, elegant, and classy! Love the bow, what a great use for it! Really liked that you stamped a rose over the entire card ever so lightly, bet it is stunning in real life. Another easy to follow tutorial, and wonderful card! I agree, it may look simple, but the design and lay-out is all in your imagination. Thanks for sharing this wonderful card with us all!
