One of the ladies who comes to my Wednesday workshops, Chrissie, asked me to make her a wedding card for her son's wedding at the end of last month. This card is similar to the one that I made for Rhea's mum Mary, in that I used the same bride & groom image. I used an 8" square card base and papers from Pink Petticoat printed in 'Silver' onto white pearlised paper. The bride and groom were cut from black pearlised cardstock and the bride's dress from white pearlised cardstock. I cut the full skirt down to a more slimline dress, and embossed it before adhering it to the black image. I added a satin bow to the back of the dress and a veil cut from shimmer paper from Papermania. I finished the bride with some pearls across her hair and down the back of her dress. I embossed a piece of white pearlised cardstock, matted it onto grey cardstock and mirri with punched edges. I added a piece of sheer ribbon then adhered it to the left hand side of the card. A sheer ribbon bloom, punched leaves and a crystal stick pin were adhered over the bow. The sentiment was computer generated in 60% greyscale onto white pearlised paper, trimmed into an oval and adhered to a scalloped, mirri oval which was adhered beneath the floral arrangement with foam pads. A silver mirri fancy corner with pearl were added to the top right-hand corner to finish the card.
