Wedding Wishes

I absolutely love how this card turned out. I wanted it to be simple, elegant and beautiful and I think I achieved that. This card is for my cousin who is getting married in early October. I just found out today and I immediatly sat down and created this for her.
I used today's "Super Sketchy Sunday" sketch from 365 Cards. I made the card 5"x5" out of plain white cardstock. I then cut the black cardstock 1/8" smaller. I then used some shimmery white cardstock and embossed it with the Lace embossing template from Fiskar's. I cut a small slit in the side of the card to thread the ribbon through and then I tied it in a knot. I added some flat back pearls to the ribbon for some more elegance. I then used the Wedding cartridge to cut the cross. I cut it at 2," first out of black cardstock using the shadow feature, then out of plain white cardstock and the final layer is cut out of the shimmery white cardstock. I stamped the inside with a wedding sentiment stamp from Inkadinkado. Enjoy!
