Wedding Cards

Wedding Cards are very important throughout the whole year
 and my son has asked me to make several for him. 
These next 2 images are the first.
The bride has chosen Burnt Orange as the colour theme. He said it wasn't big enough! 
So I reconstructed it (picture 2) using the ribbon that was on the wedding invitation (not Stampin' Up!) although it was close to Pumpkin Pie. 
I made wedding rings using 2 small punches and tied them together using Pumpkin Pie 3.2mm Taffeta ribbon. The background was made using Creative Elements and Pumpkin Pie.
 Love and Laughter for the worded Wedding Cake. Backed by Champagne Glimmer Paper and Pumpkin Pie. Finished off with Rhinestones.


The next 3 are 3 Very Vanilla card bases with White Embossed elements.
Swallowtail, Mr & Mrs were the 2 stamp sets I used and I made the wedding rings and wine glasses using Silver Glimmer Paper and coloured in using Daffodil Delight marker pen for the champagne. 
Apothecary Accents Framelits for the middle card, Whisper White Organza Ribbon and Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Rhinestones and Pearls finish these off. 
The lighting wasn't as good as I'd like as they look much better in real light. 


The next one is Whisper White card stock, Embossing Powder and Organza Ribbon, Mr & Mrs stamp, Silver Glimmer Paper, Apothecary Accents and finished off  with Pearls.


This last one is made using Brushed Silver and Whisper White cardstock with Organza Ribbon, Love and Laughter and Sweet Essentials stamp sets.

I hope you like them, enjoy, Gill
