Wedding Bliss

I have seen so many different variations of this bride and groom that I had to make some for myself.  The bride and groom are made using the "Full Heart" punch.

I started with creating my heart bride and groom.  The White heart is cut from "Scalloped Heart of Heart Embosslit" (from the Occasion Mini - still available to order) love this little embosslit.  I then embossed some whisper White cardstock using an embossing folder from Provo Craft, then punched the heart out of the cardstock.  I attached these together using 3 small brads, these brads were colored with pearl embossing powder using a fun and quick tutorial from Deena at "Be Creative" that you can find HERE.  To make the groom heart, I punched a heart out of basic black cardstock.  I then cut down the middle of the heart (almost to the point) and folded back the edges to make lapels.  I added 2 black brads and added a small amount of black ribbon that I tied in a knot.  The background paper is custom made using whisper white cardstock stamped with Wedding Bliss all over with versamark ink and embossed with the same pearl embossing powder as the brads above.  The back white layer is embossed using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.  I really enjoyed putting this card together and trying a few additional colors. 

Here are a few blogs where I got inspiration for this card.
