Wedding Card

Hi again!

I have only made one card so far this year, I just haven't been well enough to make any new ones. I am still hoping I will be able to make a card for my partner for Valentines day before the 14th!

Todays card is one I made for my Uncles wedding last year. 

I started off by stamping the wedding cake image from There She Goes Cupcake Mix and Match stamp set onto Copic Xpress it Blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image with Copic markers. I then die cut it out using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle. I die cut a slightly larger scalloped circle from gold patterned paper using Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Circle. I adhered the two circles together and added pearls onto each scallop to finish my focal image.
Next I took my white square card base and punched all the corners using my Hobbycraft Corner Heart punch. I cut a piece of cream paper slightly smaller than my card base and punched the corners of that using the same punch. I wrapped a piece of 1'' white satin ribbon around the middle of the cream paper and then matted the layer onto my card front. I adhered my focal image onto the card base using dimentionals. I finished off the card by using peel offs to add both of the recipients names and congratulations.  

This card was quite hard to photograph, it either ended up washed out or too dark! I tried adjusting it using my photo editing software but it still didn't come out the best!

I am entering this card into There She Goes Flowers Challenge as I used a There She Goes Stamp which has flowers on it!

I hope you have enjoyed my card today and I hope you will visit again soon!

Until next time,
