Color Throwdown #595 for Bridesmaid-Groomsman Card

Can you believe it is the end of May? With being quarantined every day the days simply blur together. I was on vacation this week and spent some time working on cards for the Bridal Revival Boutique at the Cotton Company in Wake Forest, NC. A couple of the themes were: Will You Be My Bridesmaid? Groomsman?
I thought I'd play along with the Color Throwdown challenge for this week, too! Black, White and Turquoise. This is a "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" card:
I got to use my new Spellbinders die set designed by Nicole Spohr, called Wedding Dress & Tux. Nicole saw a need in the market for wedding theme dies and she was so right! Since I have been making cards for the Bridal Revival I realized how few stamps/dies there are for Bridal Shower, Bridesmaid, Maid of Honor and Groomsmen. I had some blue sparkle card stock in my stash that I used with silver mirror paper for the trim. The bow is from Mr. & Mrs. Wedding Cake set also designed by Nicole. Nicole has very helpful You-Tube videos showing how to put these sets together.

This Bride-To-Be Altenew stamp set was used many, many times for these cards. I've cut them apart for different sayings, but they still go back together and stamp just fine. It is one of the few stamps I have found for the theme.

I made a "Will You Be My Groomsman? card with this same set, too.
Both cards had a watercolored background in blue. For the Bridesmaid, a light blue color was used just so there was a backdrop to the pretty dress. For the masculine card I used Ken Oliver Color Burst, Ultramarine Blue.
The stamp set I used for the Groomsman card is by The Ink Road Stamps called Suit Up. I have had it in my stash and in trying to link it up for you, I found it at Simon Says Stamp (I am not affiliated).

Anyway all simple die cutting and heat embossing sentiments.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you are each staying safe and maybe getting caught up on some projects!
