Welcome to Day 3 of Papertrey Ink's December release countdown. Today is the first of three group posts for this release, and we are featuring two new wedding and anniversary product sets: Paper Clippings: Love Story, designed by Betsy Veldman, and To Have & To Hold, designed by Heather Nichols.
All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET on December 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.
There is no doubt in my mind if I were planning a wedding today, it would be a rustic chic barn wedding. I just love old barns and all the stories they hold!
Today's wedding card is inspired by just such a barn wedding. I started with a background panel in a dark and rich woodgrain print. To that, I added two simple heart wreaths, both stamped in Mint Julep with the heart image from To Have To Hold.
Next comes the stamped open book die-cut, which is from Paper Clippings: Love Story Details, and the sentiment die-cut, which is from Paper Clippings: Love Story (I just trimmed them out from the frame). The multi-step open book image is so clever and quite easy to line up. I added a bookmark with some gold cord and a bead.
The sentiment is die-cut from the new Lilac Grace card stock and sponged with Lilac Grace and Royal Velvet. I absolutely love Lilac Grace. It's so light and dreamy! (I never thought I'd say that about a purple!)
The flowers and leaves (from To Have & To Hold) are stamped in Spring Rain/Blueberry Sky and Prairie Grass. Final touches are some white satin sequins and some distressing around the perimeter of the woodgrain panel.
