The Big Day.....

Hi everyone! As promised I'm back with the card that I made for Dan & Sarah. I intended it to be a keepsake so I bought a box to put it in and decorated the front with swirls, irridescent flowers, butterflies and a 'Big Day' die-cut. A sheer bow across one corner finishes it off nicely.

The card base is an A4 gatefold made from two A4 cards adhered together then creased to form the gatefold. The papers used are double sided pearlised papers from the Bella! Wedding 'Beloved' range.
The paper was matted to fit the fronts, inside fronts and back onto silver mirri. A smaller panel was cut to fit the front. The fabulous medallion was cut from white and pale pink pearlised card and silver mirri. I added a scalloped oval to hold the large initials and a couple of embossed butterflies. The medallion was embellished with embossed hearts, a sheer bow, Prima bloom and pearl strands. The completed medallion was adhered to the smaller panel and embellished with four embossed butterflies.
The inside fronts of the card were decorated with swirls, irridescent flowers and more butterflies.....

...and the inside back holds a pocket created from a scalloped rectangle. A tag holds a wedding greeting and the pocket, details of the wedding itself computer-generated in 60% greyscale onto vellum. The vellum piece was adhered to the pocket with glue dots, and embellished with pearls.

Because the front of the card that is hidden behind the panel when the card is closed looked a bit bare, I cut the word 'Love' from silver mirri and adhered it vertically.
And finally, because we gave a cheque as a wedding pressie I made this cute envelope from white pearlised card and decorated in the same way as the box top. I scored the cardstock on a Hougie board, punched the front edge with an MS punch then added sheer ribbon before adhering the side flaps.
Dan and Sarah loved their keepsake card!
