Love Is In The Air!

Happy Friday Krafters!
As we enter into the weekend and celebration week is nearing its end, I want to share a wedding card I made for a friend who is getting married tomorrow, May 21. Her wedding colors are black, white, silver and hunter green. My goal was to use all of her colors in this one card without making the card be too busy.
This is an A2 card (4.25x5.5). I used the DCWV The Formal Affair paper stack for the back ground paper (4x5.25) and Linen Closet for the scalloped oval. The shapes were cut with Spellbinders’ Nestabilities. I used the D’vine swirls Cuttlebug folder (My favorite) in the white top note shape. I added silver fox smooch around the shape. I took a 1.5 inch scallop punch to make the flowers, 3 layers each, and added hunter green dimensional paint in the center of each flower.
To finish off the card, I added silver and white shear ribbon and tied a bow. I took pieces of Prima flourish and placed it under the flower for an elegant touch.  To finish off the card, and add a little more hunter green, I added three dots in the corner and did faux stitching with a white gel pen.
Thanks for looking.
