Wedding Card

This week for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, Deborah is challenging us to make a project for a "Wedding". I searched through my baskets of cards and realized that I didn't have any wedding cards....so...off to the drawing board to create one.


Dies from PTI, Sizzix and MFT were used for this card. The image and the die cut flower were colored with Copic markers.



Yellow acrylic paint was applied to the flower centers using a toothpick then glitter glue (dollar bin!!!) was added over the centers and on the edges of the die cut flower. Liquid pearls added the final touch on the embossed section and scattered around the floral image.



The ribbon was woven through the card on the front and the ribbon edges were concealed behind this circular floral image on the inside.    This is one of those oops moments....forgot to add the highlighting behind the image and the glitter glue in the flower centers. Grrrr....don't you hate it when you take a  photos, color correct it, crop it, add your watermark then when you post the photo you realize you forgot something? Oh well pretend that the missing items are there! By the time you read this the forgotten steps will be added.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

WOW!!! What a jaw dropping beauty Marie! Your coloring on the branch of blooms is just gorgeous and I am swooning over how pretty the ribbon threaded through the sentiment circle looks. I need to remember that!

This is beyond stunning, Marie! I love it. Those cherry blossoms are a lovely image for a wedding card - and the sentiment? It doesn't get a lot more simple than that, does it?
