Christmas Wedding Card

I really enjoy making  Wedding cards as they can be made to look  so  special.

This is one I was asked to make in dark  red and cream and it is an 8" square.

Because it is a   Christmas Wedding  it  needed  some glittery,  icy covered  flowers too.

All the Pearls are from Want2Scrap  and  they match the Spellbinders that have been used.

The ribbon is a mixture of cream silk edged Organza and red silk.

The Spellbinders  will be BOLD  so that you will know what I have used

I have created the border on the card from Asian Accents  and the Bride and Grooms' names are layered up with Labels 20, Fancy Tags 3, Asian Accents.
The Poinsettia Flower  has been glittered and sparkled with Glamour Dust on all the edges to look like Ice.

The ribbon is double layered over the border and a cream pearl has been added to cover the knot.

For the box  I have used the Heart and Scalloped Hearts and again used the Pearls to match the shape.

The Poinsettias have Pearls in their centres and the Finesse Swirl is on either side of the heart.

The ribbons have been laid underneath the top panel on the box  and wrapped around the back.

I have glued them in place at the back of the envelope box with a matching bow added in place.

The pearl again hides the knot.

The envelope box is held together with a Velcro fastener.



I used the Enveloplus board from   Crafters Companion which will create envelopes and boxes up to 12" and up to 1" deep... so plenty of room for all your big cards.
