Elegant Wedding Cards

I've said before how much I like Agnieszka Malyszek's handmade card designs.While perusing her Flickr page recently I was delighted to see some new beauties, perfect for weddings.

I love the rich look of the cream ribbon and paper rosette, accented with dew drops. Rosettes are so popular now - small wonder as they provide a nice bit of wow impact. This tutorial at JetCraftBooks is one of my favorites and PaperCrave shows pretty examples in a variety of sizes.

Here's another rosette card from Agnieszka that features stamped wood grain and perfectly stitched cursive letters - beautiful! The calligrapher in me is so inspired to try some stitched lettering. Luckily I have a nice stash of embroidery floss patiently waiting from my counted cross stitch era. And how perfect is this card that features hand cut letters and leaves along with eccentric quilled coils?!The cut work would be beautiful on its own, but I like how Agnieszka overlaid it with graceful stems of white flowers. Another quilling friend, Sonya Appel, recently posted a top-notch eccentric coil tutorial, if you'd like to try your hand at making coils like the ones on this card with centers that look magically pulled to one side.

These are just amazing cards. I love this work! I'm going to need to check out that tutorial, too. I love the eccentric quilling, but haven't quite mastered the technique yet.
