In half an hour I will be heading to the UK for my best friend’s wedding. Of course I wanted to create a card for this wonderful occasion and I found inspiration in their wedding invitation to create a unique card for them.

This is their wedding invitation:

This is the card I came up with

The shells (Oxford Impressions) were stamped with Versamark on silver cardstock. The seahorses (Oxford Impressions) were embossed in silver embossing powder and I added some splashes of silver ink. I had to mirror one of the seahorses by means of a sheet of acetate.

This is the inside of the card

I love that sentiment by Crafty Individuals!

I also created a matching envelope

For the envelope I stamped the shell with Versamark and I added Perfect Pearls (unfortunately, the scan doesn’t do it much justice).

I’d like to enter this card and envelope to 3 challenges:
