Wedding Day

I made this for Alison and Paul who get married on 10th May 2010.
I used a deep purple pearl finish card blank, and placed a strip of lilac mulberry paper that I tore using the water and brush method, for a rough edge effect.
On this I added a piece of pink ribbon across the length of the card, using double sided tape.
I then used a paper from my store in a darker shade of lilac, and layered on this some pale lilac paper that I had added a peel off to, and cut around for a more interesting finish.
I printed some sentiments on my brand new and totally awesome printer (my last one gave up the ghost at the end of January and I've been struggling along without one until this week!).
Once the sentiments were mounted onto silver card stock I positioned them on the card with 3d foam pads.
The finishing touch was to add the lilac gem stones over the body of the card and on the top left of the card next to the peel off.
I printed the insert in the same lilac as I used on the front of the card.
Fingers crossed all goes well for them on Monday.
Good Luck x

  1. Super card Jo. Hope the wedding went well.

    Sorry I missed this when it was first posted but for some reason this blog title is coming up in my list twice and I usually click on the first one which is showing the last card you made as the speedboat one! I then decided to click on the next one down of Card Craft by Jo and it showed the shake down trip post as the last one with this post below it so I popped by to take a look.

    Looking at the archive at the side of here I can see I need to check out a few more of your cards. Think I'll have to see if I can sort my list out some how!!! I bet you thought it rude of me not to comment on your cards - sorry - not intentional.
