Less is More 87

Lucky Dip week at Less is More has us making love and marriage-themed cards.  I don't have much in the way of wedding stamps, so I went through my stamps looking for general stamps that I thought I could use for a wedding card.  That was kind of a fun exercise in and of itself. 

One of the sets I pulled out was PTI lovely layers.  I was thinking of going with a classic black and white color scheme and  decided to use the lovely layers dies instead of the stamps themselves.  I pulled out scraps from my scrap bin and experimented with different combinations.  I ended up layering black, silver, and vellum and finishing it off with a bit of bling.



I wanted to keep the finished card clean and simple for the challenge, but it looked too plain just adhered to a card base.  I cut a circle from another piece of cardstock and popped it up on foam tape to act as a frame.  I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for visiting!

What a great idea! I know I'm getting quite tired of using the same old wedding images over & over, and doing this sort of design is BEYOND clever & still very wedding-y. Love it :)
