Three weeks Saturday my eldest grandson Andy will marry a beautiful young girl Laura and they will start their lives together, and I wanted to let Laura know how much she will mean to us by joining our family. Andy is one beautiful person and so is Laura and I know they will be very happy together or at least I sincerely hope they will. Laura is a fully qualified nurse and works very hard though I know they are hoping to start a family fairly quickly so I wouldnt be to surprised to hear that Im to be a great grandma in the near future. Anyway we have to send them some money as a gift and I couldnt think of anything nicer than to make her a card wishing her all the best for the 18th August, and here is the image I decided to use, its Tilda with her bridesmaid.
Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copics to colour her, and then used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.18 to cut her out, then drew around the die to create the mount which I have pleated lace all around the edge of. The sentiment is yet another of the Magnolia stamps which I thought was appropriate for the card, this has also been mounted onto pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the papers I have used are Kaisercrafts "Chanteuse" Collection a very pretty set of papers, the first is a white background with flowers and leaves on, and for the second I cut a 5" square and used one of my Martha Stewart border and corner punches on it, then placed it on top of the bottom layer. I then cut a heart doily
with one of the pink papers with a Cheery Lynn Die, and then wrapped a pink organza ribbon around the middle.
The mounted image was then positioned towards the right with the sentiment at the bottom on left.
And to finish of I created a flower spray with roses, carnations and pearls in the top left hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
