Here is the first card my club members will get to make!

Brides - two cool

I chose a black & white color scheme that I thought added some elegance to the slightly whimsical image of the bride & groom. 

Brides - vl

The 3-3/4" x 5" Whisper White background was texture embossed with the soon-to-retire Vintage Wallpaper Folder, then layered on a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" mat of Basic Black. I tied the gorgeous, and very bride-like, White Organza Ribbon around that layer before adhering to the Whisper White card base.

Brides - v 2

The image was stamped in Black StazOn ink on Whisper White, then die-cut with the Ovals Collection Framelits.  The oval is layered on a Labels Collection Framelits die-cut in black and accented with Pearl Jewels.

Brides - v 3

I colored the image with Classic Ink Pads and Blender Pens using More Mustard for her hair, Soft Suede for his hair, Blushing Bride for their skin and flowers, and the new Smoky Slate for his suit. 

To make her dress and veil sparkle, I drew a bunch of loops with the 2-Way Glue Pen, then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds.  It's the glitter than truly makes this card. (Isn't it always?!)

Brides - h

My horizontal version uses the same elements, I just colored and glittered the image differently.

Brides - h 2

I used the same inks for the hair, but colored the flowers in Island Indigo and his suit in a darker Basic Gray color. 

Instead of drawing loops for the glitter, I drew lines to give the illusion of a flowing dress and veil.
