Here Comes The Bride



Tuxedos, evening gowns, and wedding dresses. Those were my first thoughts when I saw the elegant images in Verve Visual's new Filigree Fantasy (available, along with three other sets, this Friday). I love how easily these scrollwork images can be either combined and repeated to create beautiful scrollwork backgrounds, or used individually, as I've done here.

I started this wedding card with a single filigree image stamped in black. The secondary ring around the main image is done with the word "Love" from Wonderful Wishes Remixed. Several scalloped layers and lots of sparkle all combine to create an elegant medallion focal point. I've featured it against a backdrop of rich texture and lots of dimension to complete this "black-tie" look.

The diagonal pattern on the smaller of the two white backgrounds is created by scoring every half-inch on the diagonal, then rotating and scoring on the other diagonal. I dotted each intersection with Stardust Stickles. The larger background is dry embossed with the Textile cuttlebug folder. The wide black and silver striped ribbon is by May Arts.

Be sure to stop by the Verve blog this week, where you can see previews of all four sets, as well as enter drawings to win FREE sets!

Enjoy today!
