Bride & Groom
This is a card I put together last week to help my lovely friend Beth out – she had card orders and I had free time so it was lovely to help out a friend!
I used an 8x8 scalloped card blank and started by cutting a sheet of light dusty pink self adhesive shimmer paper to act as the background using a large scallop square nestability die.
Next I coloured the outer edges of the card on all 4 sides with Tim Holtz Shaded Lilac ink pad.
Once the self adhesive panel was firmly in place I typed out a verse and added the bride and grooms names, then cut out using a smaller nestability and placing in the top left of the card.
I had a bride and groom dressed die cut in my collection – sorry but have no idea where they came from but if anyone knows where I can buy them ready cut or better still the dies please do let me know..
I stuck the groom in place first, down the right hand side then attached the bride along side him.
In my collection of silk flowers I found a beautiful small spray that worked so well, it was attached with a small blob of pinflare gel, placed just to the left of the bride and below the verse.
To decorate the bridal gown I used beautiful pearls in several different sizes, the embossed design of the gown had a series of circles so the pearls fitted well.
It was already highlighted with glitter and there was the silk flower in the hair so I just added a few flower bits to the bouquet and a single pearl.
Small white AB pearls were attached to each corner of the verse and white with silver card candy was placed in the corners of the self adhesive panel.
I printed out 2 sheets of pretty pink patterned backing paper from Kanban Seasons cd then put back into the printer and added a verse to the right hand piece to finish this simple but stunning card
I know Beth was delighted with it and I'm pretty sure the person it was made for will be too!
More from me tomorrow folks
