Wedding Box Card

Today I am sharing with you a beautiful wedding card a friend of mine asked me to make earlier this summer. I was told the wedding colours were pink and grey so that's what I went with and I am so happy with how it turned out. I hope the bride (and groom), but let's be honest here) enjoyed it just as much.

There are some retired supplies used in this project, but I just couldn't help myself. I have made suggestions on what current supplies would be a great substitute.

 
Ingredients
Stamps: Petite Pairs, Hearts a Flutter (retired, try using Groovy Love)
Inks: Silver
Paper: Smokey Slate, Crisp Cantaloupe (could use blushing bride), Sweet Dreams DSP (try using English Garden)
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Hearts a Flutter thinlits (retired, try using Sweetheart Punch), Stampin' Score Board, Heat Tool


 
Even though it was a couple months ago, I am still so in love with this card! And so easy to make with the right tutorial.
 
Happy Stamping,
