Fifth Avenue Floral Wedding Card

One of my co-workers was quite amazed as to what I do as a side job other than my daily work schedule at the Justice … Stampin’ Up! of course.  She was amazed as to the talent I have and I have indicated to her that anyone can learn too it was just a matter of showing her how to do it.

She asked whether I can make a wedding card for her for the end of the month.  I asked her what the bride and groom’s color were, and she indicated black and white.  I said, hmmm, probably I can do that after all it is only black and white, very simple right?  But when it came to doing it, I came to a complete shock and asked myself “I don’t know what to do for a black and white wedding card”!  It took over a week to get the idea in the head, and I am surprised at myself.

So instead of a black and white wedding card, I chose, basic gray and whisper white as my base color, together with the textured bashful blue 12 x 12.  From thereon, it was a smooth piecing it together.  Here is the inside of the card.  I used the 3-d tier Sizzix XL cake, and covered the outside with Urban Oasis DP.  The “icing” was trimmed with the eyelet border.  The groom and bride were die cut in black and white.

After popping the cake open several times, I had to add a veil to the bride as it just did not look right without a veil.  I hope you can see it.

To finish off the card front, I did not want to use just black and white, so I accented it with the Fifth Avenue Floral Rose.  I watercolored the roses and trimmed them out individually.  Popped dot the lower right and added the SU Little Leaves.  In IRL, the colors were so vibrant and it stood out very pretty.
