Hello friends! Recently, I came across some cards from a wedding show that I did last year and I realised that I never posted them. It seems we always need wedding cards from time to time so they shall have a day on the blog periodically. I just love the heart tuxedo and dress stamps by Creative Expressions that were used here, aren't they cute! Basically, I have put together a background from some decorative papers from my stash. These all have a soft metallic sheen to them so I thought they would be perfect for wedding cards. I used one of them with some wedding words printed on them as a sort of border across the different panels. I stamped my sentiment on the lower part of one of the panels in black so it would show up enough (I originally tried it in gold, but it was too hard to read). I used the Elegant Posts die set and cut a long corner piece to add some detail. I trimmed the top part of the die so that it would fit flush in my corner. Using the Art Deco Fanfare embossing folder, I embossed a small piece of card to use as a backdrop for my stamped images. I stamped the tuxedo hearts in black Archival ink and cut them out by hand. I stamped them again, but just cut out the bow tie and flower and mounted them up for dimension. I glittered the flower with Iced Snow. I added small 3mm flatback pearls to the dress heart to look like a necklace. I mounted them with foam, slightly tilting and over lapping them. Three 5mm flatback pearls were added to the upper corner of the card as an embellishment. I paper pierced a milk coloured mat layer, then added a thin black mat and a final milk mat to complete the card. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
