Wedding or Anniversary Cards for Paper Rose

Today I am sharing some cards suitable for a Wedding or Anniversary 
featuring the fabulous Layered Mr. & Mrs. die cuts from Paper Rose.

I have really varied the styles of these cards.
From Classy to Country to Shabby Chic!

The combination of beautiful Webster's Pages paper with classic black for the title, diamantes & background 
with an ornate fabric trim makes a very classy simple to make card.

Close ups of the die cut.  Love how you use 3 layers for the ampersand.

This card has a totally different vibe.  
I call it Shabby Chic because of the distressed background 
I created using the Moroccan Lattice stencil with Acrylic paints on my gel press plate.

I combined gold & silver card stock for my layered title.  I had a happy accident 
when I tried to wipe away some spilled glue from the die cut with an alcohol swab.  
It removed some of the gold from the top layer of the die cut.
I remedied this by lightly rubbing Vintage gold Art Alchemy wax 
over the surface with my finger.
This gave a crazed weathered look which inspired the design of this card.

I distressed the edges of the papers with a Prima distress tool 
then swiped with Tarnished brass Distress Stain.
I also swiped the edges with a clear embossing dabber then heat embossed with a combination of clear, gold & pewter UTEE which gave a textured, crusty edge.

The metallic paper colours vary according to the light and reflection.
The bouquet is made from Tim Holtz flowers, coloured with touches of Gold 
as well as Tumbled Glass distress ink.

Close up of the details.

This card combines both classic & country styling with the combination of products used.

Paper doilies over this textured background combined with silver sequins
& washi tape layers.

Bold contrast with silver & black cardstock used for the title die cut.

This die cut is so effective & cuts so cleanly. 
I can think of so many uses for it.
If you knew the wedding colours of the recipient, an easy & spectacular card
would be so easy to create.
I hope the variety of these cards has given you some inspiration.
Cheers for now,
Deb Adams
