Special wedding card

Hello everyone - sorry to have been MIA for a few days; it seems ages ago that I last blogged but things have been pretty hectic.  I've been prepping loads of sample cards for our craft club next week, recovering chairs and what's really taken up most of my time is sorting out a pretty complicated Code of Conduct for my Parish Council where I am Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer..........hmmmm not the most fun I've ever had but it was all agreed at last night's meeting so that should be out of the way until Central Government decide to move the goalposts - yet again!!!  lol

Anyway, I thought I'd show you a wedding card that I've been making for my great nephew-in-law (!!!) who is getting married a week on Saturday.  The theme of the wedding is black and white but thought that looked a little stark so have added gold to the mix.  I've used an 8" square white pearl card base.  I then cut another piece of white pearl card to the same measurements and die cut the corners using my Spellbinders Decorative Blossom Corner (smaller one) and slipped some gold embossed card behind.  I embossed two strips of the same card using my Couture Tied Together e/f and placed them centrally on the card.  I then added Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearls in the centre of each cross section.  The central die cuts are Spellbinders Exquisite Circles and the heart is Memory Box Bingham Heart.  I printed the sentiment on my laser printer and then foiled it.  Flowers, pins, ribbon etc from stash.

Not sure what weather everyone is having but so far today we've had rain, sleet, heavy snow and gale force the sun's out!  Whatever it is stay safe.

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to visit on Saturday for my Addicted to CAS DT card.
