We went to a wedding in Reading (that rhymes!!!) on Sunday, the bride was Indian and the groom was English (the bride is the daughter of one of hubby's friends) and I thought that these two beautiful swans were an apt theme for a wedding card, for when swans mate, they mate for life. The card was made with white pearlescent cardstock and silver mirri, with a dash of grey and peach on the swans. The shaped card base was cut twice from white cardstock and silver mirri, then adhered together and hinged from the back. The scalloped oval was embossed with a beautiful swirly dot embossing folder and shadowed with silver mirri. The swans (one of them flipped) were cut from more white pearlescent card with one of the layers cut in grey, and the beak in peach. I curled the edges of the feathers upwards around a paper piercer, which gives a very realistic look to the finished swan. I added some Glamour Dust to the swans for a bit of bling and black gems for the eyes. They were adhered, facing each other, with foam pads. I added some swirly white ribbon, a sheer ribbon flower with a pearl centre, pearl strands, an embossed heart with silver shadow, and the bride and groom's initials. Four pearl Paper Cellar hearts completes the card.
