As I promised yesterday, I'm back with Keepsake Card that I made for Rhea & Phil. At Northbrook Park, there are peacocks that roam the lawns and make a nuisance of themselves in the car park- they are very vain birds and love to admire themselves in the paintwork of the cars, one even went into one of the chalets and admired itself in the mirror at the bottom of the stairs! So it seemed fitting to use peacocks on the card. I used two 8" square cards adhered together to create a gatefold card base. I printed some Pink Petticoat papers onto white paper. The papers are actually lavender but don't look it in the pictures. I added a punched border across the card front , embellished with die-cut leaves and sequin flowers. A shaped panel cut from white cardstock and PP papers was adhered to the left front and a large scalloped heart cut from white cardstock, and topped with a smaller heart embossed with a swirl embossing folder was adhered to it with foam pads.
The peacocks (one of them flipped) were cut from white cardstock and then adhered to the base of the heart with foam pads. I added an 'R' & 'P' cut from lavender paper shadowed with white card, a small embossed heart, organza bow and floral arrangement and pearls around the heart to finish.
This is the inside left panel bearing a 'True Love' cut and heart corners....
.....the inside right panel with the 'Forever' cut and more heart corners....
.....the outside right panel with die cut leaves and sequin flowers. This is partially covered when the card is closed.....
........the centre back, with a mini fold out book, 'Just Married' cut and heart corners, and the details of the wedding......
....and a beautiful wedding quote printed onto Safmat. The book closes with sheer ribbon ties...
...and finally. a box to put it in with another scalloped heart, 'Mr & Mrs' icon and sheer bow.
Phew!!!! So many pics!
