Wedding card

I was asked to make a "special" wedding card for a friend's son who is getting married soon.  They are having a very quiet wedding but Pat wanted to give them something for them to keep.

I wasn't given any preferences as to style but Hannah's wedding dress is a dark pinky red - so I decided to make the card around that colour.

I had some card with wedding sentiments glittered onto it (which I actually got from Lidl's!!!) and so I sponged it lightly with a claret coloured ink.  The bottom of the page has a border punched with a MS deep edger punch and it has a matching strip under it in red glitter card.  I added a border of red glitter card with lace over through the middle of the card.  The bride is from a Joanna Sheen stamp set "Victorian Bride" and was stamped and embossed with detail gold e/p.  I then inked up the same stamp with Staz-On, covered it with Angelina fibre and ironed it to get the fibres fused with the imprint of the dress.  I cut this out and glued it on top of the original image.  The main toppers were die cut using nesties - the bottom one is actually a red silk fabric which I glued (Stick & Stay) onto a piece of card.  Fabric cuts beautifully with the nesties with no threads hanging........  Hannah and Jim's initials were die cut in the red glitter card.  I then made up a bouquet of paper flowers, pins and gems.  The heart was made in the same way.  The sentiment was computer generated using text boxes in Word.

I have made a matching envelope box and added a fabric heart and matching flowers, ribbons etc.  I used the same MS punch in the centre of the opening with a gold mirri behind it.  Their initials are card die cuts which have been gold embossed. The heart on the ribbon is from Anna Griffin.

Thanks for stopping by.
