On Your Wedding Day

Maria sent me a gorgeous image folder crammed full of Forever Friends images this week. I had commented on card she made using one of the stamps, that I was unable to get them anywhere at the time, so she sent me a Natalie some images, how lovely is that? Thank you SO much Maria. I have used one of them to make this card for my cousin who is getting married on Saturday. I wanted to use pink and the gem stones as that is what I used to make their place cards - all 200 of them!!

I coloured in the gorgeous image with Coloursoft pencils (I was going to use Sansodor as well but liked the softness of the pencils on their own), mounted to pink CS and added to base with 3D foam pads. The base has been made by layering pink CS on to a white card blank and adding a panel of white which has had the greeting printed on to it using my PC (Scriptina font used). I have then run a strip through my Cuttlebug using the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder and also mounted to pink. Ribbon wrapped around and bow added. Gem stones added to finish. I hope they like it. I would like to give thanks to Zoe for inspiration for the layout of this card.

STAMPS: Forever Friends. CS: Anita's, white from stash, Bazzill Basics. ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, Gem stones by Rhinestones Online, ribbon by Ribbon Oasis.
