White Wedding

I have a wedding card to show you today...I love making them in all white...and they always seem to give my Cuttlebug a good workout! I used my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' and Craft Concepts 'Gem Flourish' folders for the embossing...and cut the hearts using my Cuttlebug 'Concentric Hearts' die, and the flowers using a die from my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet...adding little pearls to their centres. The sentiment is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp. I inked the edges of everything using a little 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink...as much as I love all white cards, even if you pop the layers up on 3D foam, everything still has a tendency to blend in together, and this just helps make the edges just a little more distinct without really adding any 'colour'.

Gorgeous Helen. Love the tip about the soft edging ... I made a wow card yesterday and have to admit I wondered about edging but didn't know what would be suitable. The pumice distress ink looks fab!
