Simple and Elegant Wedding Card

I must admit this is one of the better wedding cards I've made. Though I think the next one I make I will use tulle instead of the satin ribbon. The satin is a bit too slippery and the knot does not like to hold. Plus I think the ribbon could stand to be a bit wider and the tulle would fit that bill too. I will make another one and let you decide which you like better.

This is a very quick and simple card to make. It probably took me longer to cut the card stock than it did to do the whole card!!

I used white and black card stock. I cut a piece of white card stock in half and then folded one of those pieces in half. This is the base of my card. Then I cut the black 5-3/8" x 4-1/8". I cut a piece of white card stock5-1/4" x 4" and ran it through the "Dotted Swiss" Cuttlebug folder. Then I took a piece of black card stock and used the Stampin' Up! "Top Note" die and I cut one of white too. I trimmed the white one down at the dotted lines. Before I trimmed it I stamped on it. I didn't want to spend time trimming it and then mess it up stamping it. It's Murphy's Law and it usually applies to me!!! I would spend my time trimming it and then mess up the image. But my theory is, if I stamp first and then trim after it will work out just fine. I was careful not to touch the stamped area with my fingers. And to insure that I didn't mess up the ink I put a piece of paper towel over the area and held on to it as I trimmed the edging. It was just insurance so I wouldn't smudge it!!! LOL Hey, it worked, didn't it????

I tied the bow onto the white piece and then taped all the layers together. SO quick and simple to make. I have plans on making this the wedding card I give this year. I have three weddings coming up so far. I think it's going to be a busy year for weddings!!! And that's ok because I will be ready for them in a flash!!!!

I'll make another one with the tulle and show you that sometime soon.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
