Freshly Made For the Bride & Groom

Hi All! I just wanted to share a wedding card I created with inspiration from the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

I made this card for some wonderful friends who tied the knot this weekend in Florida. (They had a lovely outdoor ceremony with perfect weather!--That's not as easy to come by in South Florida as one might think...)

So the card base is the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2-inch base made from White Daisy Cardstock. The blackboard paper is a Picture My Life card from the For Always collection that I cut down to size. The sentiments are from the Celebrate Love stamp set by Close To My Heart. I heat-embossed each of the sentiments. "Just Married" was stamped in Versa Mark Ink and embossed using White Superfine Embossing Powder. The banner and "Mr & Mrs" were stamped on White Daisy Cardstock in Black Pigment Ink and embossed with Clear Superfine Embossing Powder. "Love" was also stamped on White Daisy Cardstock in Cranberry Pigment Ink and also embossed with Clear Superfine Embossing Powder. I used Cranberry Cardstock to mat the "LOVE" sentiment and popped it up using dimensional adhesive. The "Mr & Mrs" banner is also popped up with dimensional adhesive. Finally, I added Slate Diagonal Striped Ribbon and a cute little Red Enamel Heart for an extra pop of color.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

And here is the card one more time:

I hope you enjoyed this little freshly made celebration card! Have a wonderful week!
