Wedding card

Here at last is the wedding card I was asked to make.SAM_0679The base is hammered white card, overlaid with silver mirror board and pink pearlescent paper with a punched heart border. The sentiment is computer generated.

SAM_0683The hearts have been stamped onto white pearlescent paper, embossed in white and layered up onto mirror board. Swarovski crystals have been hung from the top of each one.

There are 4 pages of inserts, though i’m showing only 3 as the first has a photo of the couple. The centre pages are printed onto the same pink pearlescent paper as on the front while the outer 2 are on super smooth white paper.

This page has 3 verses and a photo of one of my son’s doves.SAM_0676

This has 1 verse and the dove with room for a handwritten message.SAM_0675

The last page is a picture of the vessel on which they will be spending their honeymoon.

SAM_0677The reverse of the card features the same papers as the front. (excuse the finger-marks on the mirror card, they will be wiped off)

SAM_0678The card measures around 19cm square so a single A4 sheet was not big enough, that’s why it’s joined in the back. It also gave me the chance to hide the workings of attaching 4 separate insert papers as they go between the fold and back piece.

What a beautiful, professional card Sue. I love the punched border and the individual touches of the doves and the cruise ship are wonderful.
