Classy Cards Wedding Wishes

Happy Thanksgiving!  

I created this card for a friend's wedding.  I love the white on white look for cards, they always feel so crisp and fresh.  I recently put together a fall card with a similar design.  I switched out some of the dies and recreated it in white.

I first used the Spellbinders Gold Labels One die on two opposite sides of the 5.5" square front panel. The Spellbinders Botanical Swirls and Accents die could easily be substituted.  I used cryogen white card stock which has a beautiful shimmer.  The card base is cream.  Since the shimmery card stock was actually more cream than the white I typically use for card bases, I thought the cream underneath looked better and set off the other white nicely.

The flowers were cut from the new Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die.  I used both of my McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kits to form the flowers.  For the largest flower I used all of the die cuts and for the smaller flowers I used multiples of the smaller die cuts.  I glued the layers together and added flat-back pearls to the centers.  I adhered the flowers to the card using Joy! Foam Pads.

The leaves are from a Cheery Lynn Leaf Strip die that's no longer in stock at Classy Cards but there are many beautiful Cheery Lynn dies still available.  Use coupon CLD for 40% off!

The Congrats word is a Penny Black die.  Thanks for looking!
