I do

Had to be done! Someone saw the cupcake card and put in a request for an OTT wedding here it is. Took ages but it was a good learning curve – improving techniques for fixing the flowers and lace on etc. Also I think what I have struggled with before is making cards which may not be exactly my taste, don’t get me wrong I like this card but it is very different to what I have been doing. So I’m embracing difference and will probably make more in this style (and many other styles) – because while I’ve been thinking I need to find my style I actually need to do many styles to suit different people.
 Stamps – LOTV ‘I Do’ and a sentiment stamp from their set 8 ‘Happy Circular Sentiments’. I also stamped and embossed a butterfly onto acetate from the Crafters Companion ’Lavender Flower Fairy’. The LOTV stamp was coloured with Promarkers, glittered and then Liquid Pearls added as confetti.
 Dies – Spellbinders Lacy Circle, 2 sizes one for the picture and one for the sentiment.
Background – Maya Designs Vintage Summer matted onto a linen finish gold card. Maya is from a website I’ve found called Live and Love Crafts – which unfortunately has so many gorgeous things I just had to get a few other bits lol !
Embellishments - Flowers from Wild Orchard Crafts, pearls and lace from Joanne Sheen.
Thanks for looking x
