Yet Another Wedding Card

Afternoon everyone...

Well , I think I am now doing a roaring trade with wedding cards. I don't think I have ever made so many in so little a time frame.

This time I have utilised one of the Outlines stamps I purchased whilst in Brisbane. They are very full on...as in they are a lot of work, I have decided. I had to stamp and emboss like 5 times (oh and a few more times coz I wasn't happy with the quality!).

The cutting was pretty therapeutic, though.The colouring was done with my aqua brush and H2Os. I found the little "forever" charm in the drawer and it fitted much, much better than ANY wording I could find and I so love those weeny, weeny brads which are holding it in place.

I ran one background layer through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder....which I am totally beginning to think lends itself to wedding cards superbly! I added some ribbon and grosgrain and it was all done. Oh and let's not forget lots and lots of pale pink diamantes to the flower centres!

I wish I could say it was a half an hour job...but alas, by the time I stopped farting around about three hours had elapsed. It was really enjoyable just to putter around with no sense of haste necessary. I think I took longer just because I could!

Your card is gorgeous and worth every minute you spent on it! I haven't tried these stamps yet because I am a bit intimidated with the number of steps to them but I really like what the finished product looks like.
