A Wedding Card


Here's a Wedding Card I've made for a teacher at my boys' School.

I'm going to enter it for this week's Everybody Art Challenge, where the theme is "Weddings".

I used a stamp by Scrapmagasinet called "Wedding Couple" which you can get from Nikki at Bunny-Zoe Crafts . I stamped the image onto Manga Art Board and coloured it using my Copic markers.
I made the roses myself and the bells and pink ribbon are from my stash.
I typed a sentiment on the computer and used some "Sweet Pea" Flower Soft around the edge for interest. I also used Flower Soft on the bouquet.
I also made a box to put it in.

For this I chose some pearl pink card and used the Crafters Companion Ultimate - I don't use the Ultimate very often, but when I do it's a lifesaver!!!

I stamped the matching "Wedding Bouquet" Stamp by Scrapmagasinet onto some Manga Art Board, used a medium oval Nestability to cut it and popped a pink eyelet in the top to make a tag.

I coloured the image using my Copics again and used some more Flower Soft.

I used the same pink ribbon to tie around the box.

This is the first Wedding card I've made, I hope the Happy Couple like it!!!

Anyway, thanks for dropping by and leaving your comments, I love reading them.
