Wedding Card

I wanted to show you this card that I was asked to make for a wedding later in the year.

This card will be going all the way to Australia and I hope that the Bride and Groom like it when they eventually get it.

I wanted it to be really special and I took a long time to get everything correct.

I used a good quality white card for all the layers,  flowers and the matching box.

I added the  Ruffled Ribbon along the left hand side,  in white satin, and glued it with strong tape to an embossed panel that I surrounded with Diamante.

The border edges are from the Morrocan Accents.

All the flowers are created with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, Spiral Blossom 1 and Spiral Blossom 3 .

Each of the larger blooms has had a Diamante added to the centre and the petals are sparkled with Glamour Dust.

The names have been added to the Floral  Ovals .

The background is embossed with the Paisley M-Bossablities 


I created the box from Centura Pearl from   Crafters Companion   and it has a beautiful sheen to it.

I added acetate to the aperture and decorated with the same flowers and Diamante. 

The butterflies are  an added extra touch to the card and the box and in the last photo you will see that I added an extra trail to each of them.

So now I have fingers,  toes and eyes all crossed that the couple will like the card I made to celebrate their special day.
