Quickie Mini Monday -- classy wedding style

Quickie Mini Mondays feature a 10 minute-or-less project -- something fast, fun and easy to reproduce and mass produce.

Hi everyone,

Someone asked me for a wedding card and I have to admit that I didn't do too many of those. The only wedding stamp set I own is in French and this card needed to be in English. So instead of concentrating on an image, I decided to let the DSP talk. And because of the intricate designs on the paper, all I needed to add was ribbon and a sentiment for a quick project.

The paper is SU's Presto Specialty DSP from the mini catalogue. The glossy designs on the paper were magically revealed by sponging River Rock and Sahara Sand Classic inks over it. I love the vintage look and I think it's perfect for a wedding card. After I was done with the sponging, I spritzed over the whole paper with my handmade Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray. I wish you could see all that glitter -- it really shines but it is so difficult to catch on a photo.

OK, one more project on my to-do list done. A gazillion more to go!

Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee
