Black Silk Wedding

Published by at 10 00 pm under Inkadinkado,Wedding Cards

I just received some gorgeous 100% Silk May Arts ribbon in 10 colors and 2 widths to add to My Ribbon Saleup above my blog banner — it’s soooo pretty!!! I also got 10 new colors of 1″ Sheer to sell by the roll. Check it out if you want to see some pretty ribbon!!!

Now on to my card. Today was a good mail day, if you know what I mean! I got many new things today and I played with severalon this simple wedding card. First of all, I HAD to try out my new Silk Ribbon, so I decided to make a wedding card and use black 1.5″ wide Silk — totally gorgeous stuff!!! Here’s my card:


I just got this beautiful wedding set by Inka, my swag on top is my new die cut by Spellbinders, and of course my black Silk Ribbonis new. That simple band of silk adds SUCH elegance to this card IRL — totally gorgeous!!! This was a quick and simple card, pretty muchCAS in my opinion. I love this bride/groom image. I apologize that the glue from my glue pen is showing through the Dazzling Diamonds in this photo. It does NOT show up one bit IRL — gosh, I wish I knew how to handle these situations with my camera — but I don’t, so we live with the blue – so sorry!!! It’s a lovely image that sparkles beautifully IRL!


Since my card base was black I had to do something to lighten up the inside. I used DP from SU and one of the sentiments from the same Inka wedding set. My new Arched Lattice Punch by Martha was new as of today, too! I love it and you’ll probably get tired of seeing me use itin a few days or weeks — LOL!!! I wrapped some 1/4″ Silk Ribbon around the bottom. I just wish you could see and touch these Silk Ribbons — they feel like nothing else, believe me! A true pleasure — and you can see all the colors at My Ribbon Sale.

    This is so elegant, Sharon! The silk ribbon looks lovely, and the die cut flourish at the top is like the top of an archway, I think it’s all so perfect together!

    Sharon, your cards are so beautiful. I check everyday to see what you have done. I am always disappointed if I don’t see something from No Time to Stamp. Anyway, I know you use a lot of the Nestibilities from Spellbinders, do you also you their Wizard or your cuttlebug to die cut and emboss? I ordered a Spellbinders from Joann’, but when I received it, it was one of the first ones made, and after a couple of uses the handle got stuck and the pressure was never the same, so I returned it. I was just wondering what you use. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  9. B-eautiful!!! I have this Inka set and it’s lovely!! I’ve looked at this MS punch several times and keep putting it back … guess next time I’ll have to pick it up because it looks gorgeous here!! You are such an enabler, LOL!!
    I really need to check out your ribbon sales … not that I don’t already have a tremendous amount of ribbon but hey … you can never have too much ribbon I say!!

    oh my word – what a beautiful creation!!! Thank you for sharing!

    Sharon, this is just lovely! I’m not surprised by that fact, but I am always sweetly surprised at how you manage to make something beautiful each and every time!
    BTW, I’m saddened you are having snow. We have that rare thing called sunshine (oh, glorious sun!!) and on a w/e, to boot. Amazing for us in Montreal. Mind you “in like a lamb, out like a lion” so I better hush up, just in case… March began alright. Shhhhh!
    Keep having fun with your creations – we love them all!

    Love it – sheer elegance! I adore silk ribbon, I think it adds so much “oomf” without the typical ribbon bulk. Thanks for posting!! 🙂

    So happy to see someone show how they make the INSIDE of a card pretty…I’ve been working so hard on the outside that I’m almost tapped out of ideas for the inside. Just refreshing to see the whole card 🙂
