Celebrating Sara & Steph Marriage

Good evening crafters and followers.  I do hope you have had a good day.  Hasn't the weather changed?  Phew, positively chilly.  Roll on Friday when, hopefully, my woodburner will be fitted so we will be snuggly warm from then on and hopefully have cheaper heating bills. 

My card tonight was made for my neice and her partner who got married earlier in the year in America.  Steph is American and has been very brave by coming to live here in good old England, but then she loves my neice and I can understand that.  Not that I am biased or anything.  I do wish them many years of happiness.

I have to admit I was a little nervous when making this as it is the first same sex wedding card I have done but I was really pleased with it although my photograph leaves a little to be desired.  Sorry.

I began with a C5 centura pearl card, matted another piece of card on after pricking around the edges.  I then embossed another piece of centura pearl card using a lovely swirls embossilicious 8x8 folder.  In fact I have used centura pearl card completed.  The two hearts are stamps from a creative expressions set of wedding stamps which are delightful.  I used a cosmic shimmer lustre embossing powder.  They have been matted onto a d-lite which is matted onto an xcut heart die.  The flower was made using stamps from Chloe.  I stamped and embossed onto parchment finished with a pearly and two swirls from spellbinders also diecut in parchment.

Finally a little personalisation using clarity alphabet stamps and some WOW silver glitter embossing powder.

I do hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog and for any comments you choose to leave.  Take care folks.  See you all soon.
