wedding day

I'm back again and this time it is a wedding card I have to share with you. I usually take inspiration from invite to make my card but this time it was tough. The invite really threw me. In the end I worked with the colour palette and made something very different (to invite i mean).


I started with one of The Sue Wilson striplets which I cut out 3 times, on kraft card, without border to create the background 'trellis'. Next I stamped the sentiment in versamark and embossed with gold detail. I cut it out with one of the imperial squares from Spellbinders. I matted on a gold square (tonic). I cut a piece of centura pearl card with the next die up and layered as shown in the middle of the card.


I cut a frame out of white centura pearl and embossed using the intermediate die as well. I matted the lot on black and hen onto white centura with a pierced border. A final gold mat before sticking down onto kraft card. 
I finished it off with some pearls.


I hope you like this shortish post and I'm keeping fingers crossed that the bride and groom will like their card too, Theresa xx

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sunday stamper - frame it
TTCRD - anything goes
Fan-Tastic Tuesday -anything goes with a twist: add some pearls
