Always & Forever

Hi there my crafty friends!  I have a quick wedding card to share today.  I started with Wedded Bliss Frame and cut it in antique gold card.  I added a white backing piece then cut out the centre by hand.  I added mounting foam to raise it.  I added it over another backing piece cut from white card.  I cut several of the sentiment in gold card then used spray glue and glitter it with Sahara Gold polished silk glitter and glued it to the centre of the frame.   I cut the frame again out of white card and cut out elements of it then glued them on top of the original. I added a thin edge of Iced Snow to the edges of the cake.   For the backing piece, I embossed a piece of antique gold card with the Heart Strings embossing folder.  I seated the frame on it then added it to a larger piece of white card.  I used double sided tape around the edge and glittered it.  The card was then completed with white and gold mats and layers.  Thee finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

I love those doves! And the Always & Forever script. And all the little bits and pieces you can use or not use with this and with any of the shadow boxes.

Using just white, gold and glitter for this card really was inspired.

Best to all on this happy summer Friday.

Very elegant card and perfect for engagements, weddings and anniversaries - a real keepsake with all the details picked out in white and yet the basic frame really lends itself to batch-making for invitations too, so a die set well worth the investment...
