Wedding Congratulations | Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #57 : Black & White

Today I am sharing a wedding card I made for some friends.

My card was inspired by the wedding invite and fits in nicely with this weeks Stamp, Ink, Paper Black & White colour challenge #57.

Here is my card:

My card uses Whisper White & Basic Black cardstock along with a small piece of black & white Damask patterned paper I had lying around that was as close to the pattern on the invite as I could find.

The LOVE sentiment comes from the retired Seasonally Scattered stamp set and was stamped in Versamark on to some black cardstock, then heat embossed using white embossing power.

Using a set of Sizzix decorative frames framelits, magentic platform & Big Shot, I cut out the heat embossed black cardstock and another in white cardstock using the next size up framelit. I adhered the 2 together with Snail adhesive.

I adhered the strip of Damask patterened paper to the bottom half of my black card front piece using Snail adhesive and then hid the joint with a piece of white satin ribbon.

I then centred and adhered the decorative frame to the card front using more Snail adhesive. The card front was then adhered to the white card base.

I decorated the envelope using the Damask style heart from the retired I {Heart} Hearts stamp set using Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
