More Wedding Cards for the Happy Couple, with Tatty Ted and MCS.

Hi Guys,

Bit rainy today, so what better excuse. Mind you, don't really need one, I could play all day in my craft room, how about you? Got loads of family cards to make for September ( does something happen in December? ) so thought I'd post these last three wedding cards before I get cracking.

This first one is a picture window card. This design has been quite popular with my customers, and at the craft fairs. They can be adapted and personalised for any occasion. It's a My Craft Studio design from the 'Crystal Sparkles' collection, I just change the colours to suit and the image is from the 'Enchanted Romance' collection.

The inside was personalised with the details of the wedding and ribbon added to emulate the brides veil. I love the 3d effect of this card, the way the windows open to reveal the bride and groom.

To finish, I added a pearl heart embellishment from my stash, and a wordart sentiment and of course, I had to do a box to match :) 

This second one is a 'Tatty Ted' easel card from my Docrafts 'Especially for You' cd. I love this image, it's different and sweet. It's not too difficult to cut out and decoupage either, there are no small fiddly bits.

It's a large image, so I used an 8x8 card blank. The easel shape and floral flourishes were cut from silver satin mirri board using spellbinders labels one and floral flourishes. The backing paper is from Clipartfairy, which I also used to make  the spellbinders spiral blossom flowers. A spellbinders grommet tag sentiment, some white ribbon and a silver coloured cross and the card is finished.

Finally, this last card was chosen by the brides Mum. If you'd like details you can find it here. The only modification she stipulated was that she wanted teal pearls, to match the brides colours, and a see through panel in the box. I also added the bride and grooms names and the date of the wedding, instead of the wedding day tag on the original.

I put killer verses in all the cards, spent a long time choosing just the right ones. My sister said they had the desired effect, not a dry eye to be seen.

Hope you liked them all and hope that they may inspire you in some way, especially if you're lucky enough to be allowed creative licence on such a special occasion, as I was.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges :-

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything goes.
Allsorts Challenge Blog - It's a Gift.
A Gem of a Challenge - Animals or Teddies.
Gems, Reddy, Teddy, Go - Anything goes.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Hope you have as much pleasure looking as I do writing it.
