Friend's wedding card,

This is the invite we got for my freinds wedding, when i saw it i remembered i had some capsule collection paper that nearly matched it, also i really wanted to make a stunning card for them because they were going use me to do the invites but then their parents decided to go with someone else,

so first i need a card that would stand out so i decided to do a side stepper card, i used an xcut punch along the bottom edge of the card, the wedding colours were cream, a navy blue and silver, i found it very hard to find a pearlesent navy card so id to go with a dark blue in the end, this is how the card turned out,

i used a forever friends clear stamp, coloured in with promarkers,
Bears: Satin, Ivory, Blush, Vanilla, and Rose pink for cheeks and feet,
Hat: Indigo blue
Vail: Sky blue and a silver gel pen for the fabric folds, then i added a bit of glitter over this,
then i used gems and the bits from the punch that i usually throw out, to look like confetti, i mounted this onto pearlesent blue card then onto the blue paper from the capsule collection then onto some siliver pearlesent card, i added congratulations in peel off stickers and a pair of rings,

next i matted blue and the capsule collection paper on the long bit and printed the date of the wedding on cream card, in Chopin Script and printed it in navyish blue, inked the edges with blue in, then i used some light blue organza ribbon and wrapped it to look kinda like a rosette and added a navy blue bow to it.

then i printed S & I in the same script and "on your wedding day" i embossed the S & I with a heart impressions pad, and inked the edges as above, and matted on to blue pearlesent card, and added it to the 1st step,

i found a navy robbon that was very like the bridesmaids dress in a fabric shop and stuck it to the 2nd step of the card, then i matted "on your Wedding day" to some blue and silver pearlesent card and added it to the second step, i added some blue organza ribbon in between the blue and silver layer on it too,

then i added gems to the corners of the typed parts and little hearts gems to the S & I. the bride seemed very impressed with it.

Thanks for Looking
