Waffle Flower Garden Dec. 19 with Wedding Day

Happy Holidays friends! Just a quick post for my submittal to Waffle Flower's Facebook Fan Group for Dec. 2019 "Anything Goes"!
I have been asked by a local bridal shop to make some wedding/engagement cards for their shop. We plan to meet after Christmas where I'll have samples to show. The little set from Waffle Flower is so darling. A Clean and Simple design was all it needed.
I tried a new paper for the watercolored images. It is Vicki Boutin's American Crafts Mixed media paper called "All The Good Things Collection - Foundation Paper". It comes in a 12 X 12 pack of 12. I cut a piece into 4 - 6" X 6" pieces and stamped images all over each piece. I used Scrapbook.com's Black Hybrid Ink. With that ink I can watercolor or use alcohol markers depending on my whim. I have to say I really liked this paper. It held up well to water and for watercoloring images, I didn't experience bleeding outside the lines. It is a little bit ivory, but I was OK with that. Scrapbook.com is having a 10% sale right now, too! Code: SANTA10 - but it ends midnight Dec. 25th!
The other papers I used was Neenah Solar White 80lb. for the heart cut out and the embossing Wedding Ring background. Hard to see in the pictures, but a nice, soft detail for the card background. The heart die cut was one I had in my stash with stitched lines, so I liked that additional detail, too. I ink blended with The Stamp Market blending tool using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. Those blending tools can't be beat when you want a soft look.

The die cut "happy" was from my stash. A free gift years ago from Papertrey Ink and I really like the font. I cut it twice from white card stock and once from silver glitter card stock. The embellishments are the gorgeous Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear gems. 
Simple inside sentiment, church and dove all from Waffle Flower's Wedding Day Combo set.
Another new card stock I tried was W Plus 9 Dove Grey. It is a 100 lb. weight card stock and I love it! It scores more easily, doesn't crack when folded and yet is strong enough for a card base. The Dove Grey is such a beautiful soft color which gives a nice tone on tone look.

Thank you Waffle Flower for hosting the challenge and again, I wish you very happy holidays!
