A sweet friend of mine was invited for a wedding party today and asked me to make a card for the happy couple. I love to make wedding cards, it always cheers me up when I can create cute wedding scenes.
I have recently got my hands on the Heffy Doodle Happily Ever Crafter stamp and die set and I also received the free Hay there stamp and die set. I could not wait to use them together! I stamped and coloured them with Copic markers and used their coordinating dies to cut the images out.
To create a scene I knew I need some scene building elements. I die cut trees from green and brown cardstocks using the Heffy Doodle Forest builder dies. I also cut some grass with the Newton’s Nook Designs Land border die set and also a hill with the Heffy Doodle Stitched Slopey Joes border dies.
For the background I die cut the Lawn Fawn Vertical Stitched cloud backdrop from Neenah Solar white cardstock and added a bit of Tumbled glass Distress Ink with a small blending brush. I love the texture I got with the stitching details and a bit of soft colour.
I assembled the scene, adhering the hill and grass first and then the trees and the cart. I adhered the bride on the horse and popped her and the groom up with 3D foam squares.
The sentiment I stamped on a thin strip of vellum using black Staz-on ink and wrapped it around the background panel. Using double sided adhesive tape on the back ensures that no glue shows through the vellum on the front.
I also die cut the word Magical from gold glitter cardstock. I embellished the card with some gold jewels on the trees.
I added clear shimmer to the dress and glossy accents to the gold parts of the cart, the crown, the bow tie and shoes of the groom. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes to make them shiny.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will pop in again tomorrow for some more fun!
See you soon,
