So we have had quite a good weekend.  We were allowed to take Madden home on Saturday.  He had an intestinal infection / virus so he is still on medication and special food but at least he is home with us.  He is a lot happier already and shows us his quirkiness. 

I spent an hour in the stamp room Friday night to make two cards quickly for our neighbours.  Our neighbours son was married on Saturday so we needed to make a card for the bride and groom and of course for the parents (our neighbours)

The card I am sharing today was the card I made for the bride and groom.

The base is 6" x 6" textured Whisper White cardstock.

The top layer of the card is also textured White which I ran through the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and layered over Basic Black cardstock.  I wrapped beautiful 5/8" White organza ribbon around the card and tied into a bow.  I added a few adhesive backed pearls to the centre of the embossed flowers. 

The last step was running the Lots of Tags sizzlit die through the Big Shot with black cardstock, stamping my sentiment in Black ink on White cardstock, punching this out using the wide oval punch and layering together.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:  Stamp Sets - Ever After (retired)  Cardstock - Whisper White textured, Basic Black  Ink - Basic Black  Accessories - 5/8" White Organza ribbon, Elegant Bouquet EF, Lots of Tags sizzlits, Adhesive Pearls


  1. So glad to hear Madden is doing better.

    Beautiful card - I love how you added the pearls to the embossing (I have that embossing folder, so I'm now anxious to use this technique).

  2. What a beautiful, elegant card. I'm definitely going to have to try something like this...and now I'm even more excited to get the Lots of Tags die :) Thanks for sharing!
