Katarina has asked that something is created for summer.
I have created an 8 x 8" easel card for a summer wedding. This card will be going to the daughter of a friend of mine who lives in Wales and is getting married very soon.
I have used papers from the Papermania wedding collection which I got in my local craft shop. I love the cream and pink rose colourway, The background pink card is by Bazzill, and the cream card used for the punched heart border and the hearts is a shimmery ivory colour which I bought in A3 sheets at the Newbury show. It is a heavyweight card and makes a great base card as well.
The top card is trimmed with some lovely lace which I found at LB Crafts. I have gone overboard with the flowers, which are gardenias, roses and cherry blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts. The flowers have been sprayed with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, and edge with Stickles Stardust, as has the edges of the die cuts. I have added a couple of pearl pins and trimmed the hearts with tiny pearls. The hearts were cut with a Martha Stewart punch.
For the bottom part of the card I have punched a heart border, and again trimmed with tiny pearls, and also a Prima Swirl. The sentiment and the stamped roses are from the Stamp Barn, who were at the Newbury Show. I have trimmed this with a pearl butterly.
I am also entering this card for the following challenges:
