Congratulations - An Elegant, yet Modern Wedding Card

When I read about THIS amazing challenge over at Caardvarks I couldn't help but want to give it a shot!  My wheels starting turning almost instantly as I thought of a wonderful Wedding Card design!

I decided to go for an elegant look that still is a bit modern in design.

I began with a kraft base and a simple sentiment. (CTMH stamp and ink) I accordion folded the fan from a sheet from the Wedding pages of a vintage encyclopedia and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink (Ranger) to give it depth. I used my Cricut to cut the simple, scalloped border and the brackets from My Mind's Eye papers. The scallops are layered with dimensional adhesive giving them a fabulous sense of dimension! The lace (Making Memories) is placed below the border and I added a few gem stones (CTMH and Making Memories) to give a more formal feel to the entire design. The edges of the card are inked to pull the whole piece together.
