Wedding congrats

Today's card uses a stamp from Deep Red Stamps which you can see their selection at A Cherry on Top or OOzaks. This stamp is part of  a set of three which can be found HERE or HERE. I used the stamp on the bottom of the set for my card's background. I used this same set on THIS card. Stop by and check it out as well.

I heat embossed the randomly stamped image on watercolor paper by Strathmore. The embossing powder is by Stamp N Plus and ink by Versa Mark. Then I rubbed Distress Stain by Ranger Industries {Color Spun Sugar} over the entire piece of paper. I wiped the embossed areas clean and sprayed water on the paper in areas where I felt the color was too dark. After it dried, with the help of a heat gun, I took an ink blender and Spun Sugar distress ink and inked the edges a little bit darker then the rest of the background.

The vellum on the bottom portion of the card is by The Paper Studio and the sticker in between the background and the vellum is by Mrs. Grossman's {Very old sticker that I just came across this past week.}. The vellum was dry embossed with an embossing folder by Darice. The arched shape is a die cut that was cut out by my Cricut using the cartridge Sophisticated. I placed a piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper in the center of the die cut and then aligned the Jolee's cake sticker on top of that.

The sentiment is a rub-on by Pebbles that is on Neenah Solar White cardstock and is matted on a piece of Recollections black cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by.
