Wedding Day

Hello Everyone!!  Today's card is a special one that I made on behalf of my daughter's Prep class (Prep is the school year before Grade One here in Australia) for our wonderful teacher Liz who was married on Friday!  We presented this to her a few days before the wedding in front of the whole class along with a gift - she was so surprised!  :)

This is a big card measuring 5 inches x 7 inches.....but when you have 24 Prep children aged 5 and 6yrs having to write inside, it's still not big enough!!  So one thing I like to do when I lot of people have to sign a card is slip in several sheets of writing paper cut to size and tied with a piece of gold or silver cord.

I've used a base of Very Vanilla and layered with kraft and then more vanilla.  Next I've taken a piece of Soft Sky card cut with Spellbinders Exquisite Labels Eleven - I've used soft blues and greens since this is the colour palette for the Wedding.  Next is another piece of Vanilla cut with Grand Labels Four and layered with blue cut with 5x7 Elegant Labels Four.  Next is another piece of kraft cut with Labels Four topped with vanilla (sponged with Memento Summer Sky ink) cut with Lacey Oval Nestabilities.  Finally I've stamped the bride and groom image from Flourishes' Wedded Bliss stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto vanilla and cut it with Opulent Ovals Nestabilities.  Whew!  Yep, it's a lot of layers!!  :)  I've attached a blue ribbon, added some pretty ivory pleated trim from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and stamped the sentiment (also from Wedded Bliss) onto vanilla card.  It's been cut out with Spellbinders Labels 33 and sponged with Summer Sky ink.  The top corner is embellished with Prima Flowers and leaves, a couple of die cuts made of vanilla and Spellbinders Botanical Swirls and Accents and finally added a couple of  ivory pearls to the top and bottom corners.
