A Wedding Celebration Card


Hello friends! It is that time of year again for weddings all though you could use this card for Mother's or an Anniversary by changing the sentiment.


For this card I used the new Secret Garden Window die with white, pink and green pearlescent vellum. Vellum can be a pretty tricky medium because it shows adhesives. Before I cut the Quilted Backdrop: Landscape from the white vellum, I adhered it to a sheet of double sided adhesive. Once it was cut, I layered on the darker side of the pink vellum and adhered another sheet of double sided adhesive and cut out the window. I placed the cut window piece on top of the green vellum and cut the inside window detail.


I cut some of the little flower pieces from the pink vellum and glued them as inconspicuously as possible. I wasn't too worried about the glue showing because I was planning to use some Stickles to add glitter to them anyway.



I stamped the Swans directly on a piece of White Shimmer Cardstock and just added a small amount of color with Copic markers and applied some blue vellum cutting around the bottom of the swans to add the look of water.



I added adhesive foam strips to the back of the front of the card and adhered to the layer with the swans. Then I added glitter to the swans, water and the flowers in the window. A fun surprise was when the glitter dried, it shrunk just enough to slightly cure the flowers which added some additional dimension.


For the sentiment, I used the Big Scripty Words Hot Foil Plates with a light pink foil on the white shimmer cardstock. I trimmed the card with a gray shimmer cardstock frame cut with the Stitched Rectangle Frame die.


The pictures don't do this card justice - it is just beautiful. Thanks for stopping by!
