2 Wedding Cards and a papermill Offer...

Hello, this week we are thinking about Weddings, and at papermill there are lots of different types of card suitable for Wedding Cards and Stationery.  White Linen is of course very popular and this week is on Special Offer at just £7-50 for a small box in A5 size.  Whilst you are checking out the White Linen, you may wish to have a browse through some of the other card textures and finishes like the pearlised?  I have chosen to work with the pearlised card this week in both a natural white colour and the ivory colour. 

First up is a new version of a style of card I have made before and you may recognise the shape.  This time though I have embossed the bodice of the dress with a swirls embossing folder and used the de-bossed side to cut 2 sides of skirt panel.  I love how you can achieve a subtle change of pattern just by mixing up the embossed and de-bossed designs. 

 I think this card would make a great 'Thank You Bridesmaid' card or even a card you could send to the 'Bride to Be'?  I have used mini faux pearls to scatter over the skirt part of the dress, to hopefully help keep the design delicate looking.  I also chose to use a contrast card in a burgundy colour called 'maroon' as I think this would be perfect for Autumn & Winter Wedding themes and have embossed this with tiny dots. Lace rose ribbon trim in Ivory, Cream ribbon trim, mini faux pearl strings and faux pearls in 3 sizes to decorate the dress.
 My 2nd card has been created by using Tonic Dies to cut and layer up a shaped card base. I used Natural White Pearlised and the Maroon card again to give this an Autumn / Winter theme. 
His and Her heart images have been stamped with  'starlite black' ink and then covered with double sided adhesive sheet and then with Clear Micro Glass Beads. The hearts were attached to the card front with 3D foam pads. 

 'Your Wedding Day' was cut with tattered lace sentiment dies. and carefully positioned onto the centre panel. I avoided adding any extra bling or ribbons to this card as I felt the layered heart panels and the glass micro beads were enough to carry the design.
