The Perfect Pair........

Hi all! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! As this is wedding season I thought that I'd conjour up a wedding card. I got the idea from Becca Fekken's blog Amazing Paper Grace (on my sidebar)- she made her shoes from templates- I used the Bug! I used some lovely pearlised paper from a pad (Anna Griffin, I think) some plain, some embossed and some patterned. I used a simple layout with the sentiment oval at the centre of the card. I cut the bride's shoe & sentiment from white glittercard and the groom's shoe from black & gunmetal mirri card. I pierced some holes in the groom's shoe and threaded black embroidery thread through them with a needle, fastening the loose ends at the back of the shoe. I then made a bow from more thread and adhered it with a spot of PVA. I added satin ribbon, a lovely camelia , some mini roses, leaves
and 3 pearl strands. I added more pearls to the top 2 corners of the purple panel. I added more paper, a punched border inside along with another scalloped oval to hold your handwritten or stamped sentiment and 3 small punched hearts.
Carts used:
Shoes & sentiment- Sweethearts
Scalloped ovals- Storybook
Plain ovals- George
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and thanks for looking!
