Pretty In Pink Wedding Card

Hello and happy November! The year is certainly flying by. Well, instead of a summer wedding, I just attended the Autumn wedding of a couple who are like my own children. It was beautiful and I am so happy for them. I made this card for their happy day, and thought I'd share it, as it's loaded with Ranger and Tim Holtz goodies. Hope you enjoy.
Onto the craft sheet, I dabbed on Picket Fence, Antique Linen, and Brushed Pewter Distress Paints, misted with water, and dredged watercolor cardstock through. Then I dried it.
I stamped the Love definition over and over the cardstock with Hickory Smoke Distress Archival Ink.
I added Worn Lipstick and Victorian Velvet Distress Paints on the craft sheet, added water, mixed them a little, and then swiped only the top edge of the cardstock in, and let the paint run down. I let it dry.
Onto a heavystock tag, I dredged the same pink mixture from the last step, onto the tag, and let it dry.
I stamped the doily images onto Plain Tissue wrap with Antique Linen Distress Paint, several times while overlapping. I let it dry.
I stamped the bride onto heavystock and on the doily images with Jet Black Archival. I cut them both out, and adhered the tissue bride onto the cardstock bride, with Multi Matte. Now her dress is laced.
I painted in the rest of bride with Distress Paint and a detailed waterbrush.
Taking the dried pink tag, I die cut the roses, and rolled them up, and made leaves from dark green cardstock.
I adhered crinoline and then roses on top of that. To finished I mounted the card on Metallic cardstock, and added the sentiment.
I'll be back soon! Until then, love the ones you have deeply!!!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!


  1. So pretty!! I love the roses, they turned out perfectly! ❤

  2. Just beautiful and I loved the idea of making your own color for the roses. Intellectually, I know this but I "forget" so thanks for the reminder. Keep up the creative work and inspiration to us all.

  3. That's such a different look for you, but you wear it well! I'm sure the happy couple adored their card - those flowers are glorious! Happy November to you too!

  6. Absolutely an amazing Anita wedding card masterpiece. Really fantastic. The lace on the wedding dress is a brilliant idea! I love the poured paint at the top and all the layers. Wow! Sorry I haven't been around much lately my friend. Trying to catch up today :) Hugs -- Mary Elizabeth
