Stamp-a-Faire 2015: Bridal Challenge

Here comes the bride!  The first challenge today is to make a wedding card, using nothing but white supplies.  The only exception is a neutral ink for a sentiment.  Emily and I both made a card for this challenge.  I'll post mine here and then Emily's card in a separate post.

I pulled out my Quick Stitch Sentiment dies and cut the world "love" into a white cardstock panel.  I mixed two strands of white embroidery floss and one strand of white metallic braid.  Once threaded onto a needle, I stitched through the holes the die left behind.  There's a subtle shimmer to the thread that is really pretty.

I cut three pieces of a flower die from Petite Pots, trimming parts from two of them.  I added pearl dots with a Viva pen and then arranged my flowers onto the card into a pleasing bouquet.  The white panels was then added to a card base with foam tape for dimension.

Voila, a pretty and elegant wedding card!  :)
