Sneak Peek Kind of Sorta'

Today there is a tiny, tiny peek at one of the new Stampin' Up sets coming out July 1st. This is a wedding card I made Friday night for a wedding yesterday. I love how this card turned out. I specialize in simple elegance and this card has it in spades. I picked up all the paper from Whole Lotta Scrap at Friday night's crop. I'm sure the scan doesn't show the sparkly glitter in the silver swirls or the metallic sheen of the pink and white papers. I used the sentiments in the new Stampin' Up hostess set "Kind & Caring Thoughts". I smuggled in my new order items and kept them under wraps while creating cards. It was like having a delicious secret no one else could share, LOL! I think this is going to be one of my favorite sets from the new catalog. I didn't take a photo of the inside but the verse says "May today be the beginning of a love that lasts forever." Perfect for a wedding card. I picked up a package of Swarovski crystals and the velvet flower is from Prima. I changed out the regular rhinestone on the flower and placed one of the Swarovski crystals there to match the others on the card. Simply beautiful, just the way I like it! Stay tuned for more cards. I'm making lots of samples to display at my Cardmaking for the Troops events.
