Card Fifteen - Graphic Wedding
I have discovered the word "graphic" means black and white, at least in the crafts world.
My sister wanted a card for a wedding she is attending. She wanted champagne colors and I started out using some champagne paper, and the card ended up blue and purple and not only that, off kilter. So I started again, leaving the colors behind. Sometimes you have to follow where inspiration takes you!
I found this lovely black and white heart paper that I'd gotten from Pink Paisley warehouse sale, and started pulling out stuff that matched. I used white cardstock, and some stickers I'd had, by a company called Glitz and Glitter - I found them at Tuesday Morning, I think. And that wonderful leaf ribbon in black, that I didn't end up using but still love. I grabbed some white Martha Stewart heart stickers, colored them black with a Spectrum Noir pen, popped a flat back pearl in the center and called it a day.
But it still seemed flat to me, so I backed everything with black cardstock. And there you go. Graphic wedding card.
Here is the inside using the rest of the sticker:
