Traditionally there are always more weddings in the summer months than during the winter ones. Having just made a card for a Ruby Anniversary I found myself reaching for the same digi set to make a wedding card.
Deedee’s Digi Stamps sets – Two Hearts and
Britannia rose dies and leaf die
heart shaped dies
shimmer white paper
white printer card
centura pearl card
white A5 card blank
memento rose bud ink pad
spray and shine
clear wink of stella
I printed out the frame from the Framed Comfort set with the words from the Two Hearts set and the names of the couple and the date in the middle. I cut around the outside of the frame to make the topper. Using the silver pen I traced over the design of the frame and then went over the top with the Wink of Stella pen. I cut a piece of centura pearl card slightly smaller than my card blank and embossed some heart shapes on it using the heart dies. I then blended the memento rose bud ink over the card. It left a very subtle watermark effect which does not really show up very clearly in the photo.
Using the Britannia dies and the shimmer white paper I cut out the rose petals andleaves and coloured them with Copic pens before making up the flowers. When the flowers had set I sprayed them and the leaves with spray and shine.
Finally I attached the topper to the card blank and arranged the flowers and leaves along the bottom edge of the frame.
This is the first card commission I have had for a while and I am happy to report that my customer was very pleased. She had given me a good idea of what she wanted so I guess I was following a recipe for it.
Thank you for dropping by. Take care.
I would like to enter my card into:
