Oh, they say when you marry in June . . .

We made this card at June's Card Buffet. It's the "full-sized" version of the 3x3 swap card I did here. I always need more wedding cards this time of year! This one is simple and elegant, and uses my favorite tools--punches! The sentiment is from Oval All, available now in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I stamped it in Basic Black Craft ink on Whisper White cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I punched it out using the Large Oval punch. It's layered on a Scalloped Oval punch (also in the Occasions Mini!).

The vellum layer was run through the Big Shot with the Texturz plates. I use one sheet of cardstock as a "shim," because the vellum is thinner than cardstock. That gives you a nice deep look to the embossing. It's difficult to use adhesive behind vellum, as you may have found out! So this is attached to a layer of Basic Black cardstock using only the 4 black brads. The sentiment is popped up with Dimensionals.

Have a great weekend!
