Wedding card

Saturday saw me and hubby at a wedding and I always like to do a special card as its a special day for them.  Well I knew that her colour scheme was burgundy and cream so that was an easy start - Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White were my choice in card and ink.

For those of you who me will also know that I like to do a card that is boxed and the shape of a book.. The template for this is not from Stampin' Up! but from my own materials.   I also used Confetti Cream card for the base of the card as this is sturdier than Very Vanilla, although this was used as the top layer to the card as it is smoother to stamp on. Here is the finished card :-

I embossed the image using versamark ink and then Cherry Cobbler and heat set it with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.  The rose buds were made by punching out varying circles and, starting from the outside cut into the circle  to create a spiral effect.  Then from the outer edge roll the card up to make a circle.  Allow the "bud" to relax a little and secure using tombow.  The new glitter from the Autumn/Winter catalogue was used to create the raindrop effect on the flowers

Obviously such a special card required a special box to put it in so I again cut out the book shape and embossed the frames onto the smaller "page".  I then used the Timeless Types Alphabet dies, which are sadly retiring, to cut out the initials of the bride and groom.  I finished the box off with a few adhesive pearls

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my work.  Any order gladly taken.

Til next time
