Clean and Simple Fairy Tale Wedding

Happy Sunday!  I rarely post on the weekends, but I'm so excited about the code word this week at CASology that I'm hurrying to post my card before the challenge deadline.

I just love a good fairy tale!  I bought a wonderful set of stamps several years ago that I used for my wedding, and I thought they would be perfect for this challenge.  The CASology challenges call for Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, and I chose to make a *very* CAS card for this one:

Here's a better view of the scored lines:

I started by die cutting a scalloped square from white card stock.  I stamped the church image in Craft Black ink, then sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I chalked over the piece with Mauve Mist chalk.  I stamped the sentiment in Craft Black directly on the card base and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I scored lines on the card and adhered a piece of black shimmery card stock to the card front.  I adhered the scalloped square over the shimmery black piece using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added Glossy Accents to the church image, then wiped most of it away with my finger, leaving a very light layer of satiny finish.

I'll be posting some Valentine's Day projects this week, so I hope you'll visit me again soon.  Thanks for stopping by!
