Weddings!

I don't think I've shared this card before as I made it last September, but apologies if I did. I went a bit blingtastic on this one!
I used the Sue Wilson Arbour Gate and Bride & Groom dies cut out of centura pearl card. I backed the bride and groom with a bit more card so that they didn't have see through areas. A bit of glamour dust was added to the brides veil. For the background I used an 8x8 flourish embossing folder by Crafters Companion, but used the debossed side as I preferred that for this card. A bit of matting and layering on the 8x8 card to give some dimension and then lots of bling!
Hubby and I were chatting on Sunday about something random, which suddenly reminded me that it was a friend's wedding this month. I checked the invitation that was on the notice board in the kitchen and realised that it's this Saturday! That was a close shave, can't think why I didn't write it on the calendar. Oh well, you may see another wedding card appearing here soon...

  22. Hi Cara
    Sorry I'm playing catch up but with a workshop, Kate McScottish person visiting and the website to contend with, I've needed 30 hour days lol!
    This card is truly stunning. I would imagine it had a prominent position on the mantelpiece.
    Best wishes.

  23. Holy cow Cara, this is soooooo elegant! The pearl paper is beautiful and I love the embossing pattern in the background. Your focal piece is stunning! Those die cuts are so intricate and delicate, and I adore the touch of glitter in the bride's veil! The frame of bling and the gorgeous pearl button adds such an elegance! This is definitely a gift as well as a card, to be treasured forever! hugs :)
