Wedding card

No surprises there, right?!

It's not often these days that I come across something that appeals to me so much that I just HAVE to try it out myself, but I was browsing the Gallery over on scrapbook.com and I found this perfectly adorable card. Even if I hadn't just received the Spellbinders heart dies I ordered a while ago, I would have made this like a shot (and then probably ordered the dies afterwards!) The dies made such a difference though. It looks really "professnial", don't you think?


I'm going to try entering this into Cute Card Thursday's "couples" challenge. I know I entered it with the anniversary card too, but maybe they'll let me enter twice as it's a completely different card. Seeing as they're second in the Wikio Top Crafts list after all. {batting eye-lashes}

The card is actually a piece of wedding card-stock that I bought ages ago in a Spotlight sale. It's all shimmery and iridescent, and properly weddingy. The bride heart is plain old white office card which I embossed using my Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots folder, and daubed with Adirondack pearl alcohol paint (the fumes from that stuff are powerful!) and added pearls to. The groom heart is two hearts cut from white and black card, and I cut the middle out of the black heart and stuck the edges on. The bow-tie is made from two tiny punched hearts - a little cheesy but I think it works. Add some ribbon, mat it and it's done.

Oh and the inside has an insert which I've stamped but haven't stuck in yet. Just in case of mistakes. Like if someone writes his sister's anniversary card, then absent-mindedly puts kisses on his male colleague's birthday card immediately afterwards. Not that that would happen in our house, but just in case, you know? ;-)

Hi

I love what you have done with the hearts on this card. I found it when I did a Google search for Wedding Card images.

I hope you don't mind but I have used the idea on a wedding card of my own which I am posting on my blog today.

If you are not happy and want me to remove it then just say .. .. I am happy to do so.

I have linked to your post here so that others can see your lovely work too. I am pleased I found your blog.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
