♥ Wedding Card~ Punch Art ♥


Hello Friends in Blogland,
I was recently asked to make a wedding card for the upcoming nuptial of one of my collegue (Val)
 - to share with other invited collegues - and this is one of the two choices I made.
I took in consideration that her wedding dress color is amethist/light blue and that she loves daisies;
so much in fact that she used them on her wedding invites as well....

Luckily I had some leftover SU textured amethist c/s which I paired up with a
beautiful dotted white c/s as the base of this card. The designer paper 
 is from SU 'Specialty Paper Bride' . It was used for both daisies , the lovebirds and my lil handmade rolled rose , plus the inside of the card too. Love such beautiful  and shimmery looking d/p!


Close up of  front and inside of card
There are four overlapped layers for each daisy.
Too bad that it doesn't show too well how glittery it is around
the diamond shape and the smallest nestie edge,below.


I used a new sentiment stamp for the inside. It is 'Best Wishes Wedding'  from Paper Parachute, inked in Almost Amethist from SU. Unfortunatly it was not inked quite straight, but I had no time to make a new inside panel ...oh well...it adds some character....lol


Other items used to make this card, besides the ones already mentioned, are:
CB folders: Swiss Dots, Victoria, Just my Type.
Punches: MS heart border punch , SU two steps bird punch
Sizzix : Daisies #2 , sizzlets alphabet letters
Several nesties from Spellbinder, white satin ribbon, pearls, beads, glitter, dimentionals.
This is it for now....I will be posting the other wedding card at another time....

Sending blessings and love to ya all...thanks fo visiting!
