So In Love for #JAI341

Hi Crafters!

Today I've got a really pretty wedding card to show you! I knew I wanted to use the So In Love Bundle from the new Occasions Catalog, but I wasn't sure on which colours to use. So, I had a look around & found the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge for this week - Basic Gray, Old Olive & Whisper White. I thought this would be really fun to work with as it's for a friend who likes out of the box cards to give to her friends & I think she'll appreciate the non traditional wedding colours. 

I have used a Basic Gray cardstock base to start off. I have then very roughly sponged a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Old Olive. I wanted it to be gradient with bits of darker green & white bits still showing through. Then I have turned it over & put strips of Tear & Tape all over the back, about 1cm (half inch) apart. Next I have cut out two of the Detailed Thinlits on the Big Shot. These are the matching thinlits for the So In Love stamp set from the new Occasions catalog.

After you've cut your thinlits, you can just peel away the Tear & Tape & stick your die cut down, without any fuss! See my short 'how to' video below for more info. I've connected mine in the middle & then covered it with a piece of the White Organza ribbon. I have also trimmed the edges as they went over the sides of the card. Next I have stamped some of the small floral images onto the Basic Grey cardstock, tone on tone, rubbed with the Embossing Buddy & Silver Heat Embossed the Congratulations sentiment (all from the So In Love stamp set) with the Heat Tool. 

Some of the heat emboss powder has stuck where I've stamped the small floral images & I think it looks really pretty. The label border & thinlit have come from the Rose Wonder Bundle. I've also added 3 Basic Rhinestones & a little nest of Silver Metallic Thread to finish the front of the card off. The sentiment has also been propped up with Dimensionals.

On the inside, I have used a layer of Basic Grey on the inside of the front of the card, to hide where I've adhered the ribbon with Tear & Tape. I have used a layer of Serene Scenery (Old Olive Bokeh Design) & Whisper White & then Silver Heat Embossed the sentiment. I have stamped the flower in Old Olive inside the card & on the envelope, to match. The flower matches the thinlit I have used.
