Blue Wedding Card

I was needing to make a wedding card for a friend, so I played around one night and came up with this.

I started with a 5x7 card base, cut a layer of textured cream card and blue cardstock which I embossed with a polka dot folder, and then I cut both edges of a panel of the cream card using Spellbinders Bracket Borders 1

I added it over the blue, wrapping a ribbon around all the layers before adding them to my cardbase.

I cut the flourish from cream card and added it, then I layered up the leaves and flowers.

The sentiment is embossed with silver powder, cut with a die from the Lacey Ovals set, and layered onto two more Lacey Ovals, both of which have been embossed, with foam between all the layers.

I stamped the butterfly on white cardstock using clear embossing ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.

I then added in a bow on the side with a paper rose on top, and self adhesive pearls to finish.

The inside of the card is lined, and I created a box to put the card in and layered it with some of the same elements as the card front.

Christina says ...

This is so pretty and making a box to hold the card always makes it so extra special. It may take a little longer but it is so worth the effort.

The pale blue and cream that you have used go so well together and although the picture is a little blurred the effect can still be seen

What a beautiful card. At first glance it looks like you have used parchment. The overall effect is just gorgeous.

Faith, you card is beautiful. I love how you've done the flowers at the top. And like Christina says, making the box to go with, just makes it a complete gift. Well done.
