Mr. & Mrs.

In addition to graduations this year, we seem to have a lot of weddings happening.  I love when I can have simple but elegant cards on hand to use for the occasion!  This card was very simple.  I used the new Happily Ever After set from Taylored Expressions along with the new Damask Flourishes Die set.  I started by stamping and embossing the "Mr & Mrs" onto a white piece of cardstock.  Next, I placed the dies on either side of the stamped sentiment to "frame" it.  I taped them in place with removable tape and ran it through my Big Shot. 

To give the card some pizazz, I dipped the edges in glue and then dipped them in this antique-looking glitter I found in the Target dollar bin.  Next, I cut a black piece of cardstock slightly bigger than my focal piece.  I mounted the die cut piece onto the black piece with foam tape.  Even though the sentiment and the flourishes look the same, the flourishes are actually the negative die cut with the black cardstock showing from behind, while the sentiment is shiny because it was stamped and embossed in black.  I mounted the whole piece onto an A2 size card to complete the card.  Super simple, but elegant! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
