a wedding card on hand. This is an occassion that always sneaks up on me…when someone I know is “Going To The Chapel”. I can finally say that I’m prepared. My friends (and co-workers) are getting married in 2008 and this will go to my friend Julia. When I got married, I know there were a couple duplicate cards that I received from a well-known card store — it makes me happy to know this is a one of a kind made especially for her:)
(Followed MFT sketch08 at SCS)
I used MFT Going To The Chapel stamp set for this card. Check out this set…there are so many cute images with tons of sentiments. I used every sentiment from the set on this card. The main sentiment is “da dum dee dum” and all the others are on the Chocolate Chip CS base.
The main image is really neat. I wanted the dress to be white but wanted a Very Vanilla CS background. I stamped the image two times on Papertrey White CS: one with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and the other with Close to Cocoa ink. The Black ink image — I colored in the hair, body, and flowers & carefully cut out. The Close to Cocoa image — this is the dress. I then stamped the image again on Vellum with Opaque White Stazon Ink — this is how I created the veil. On a piece of 1-7/8″ x 2-5/8″ Very Vanilla CS, I pieced the image together. Because the bride was 2 pieces, this also gave me the ability to make the bouquet pop out (I stacked 3 mini-glue dots on top of one another beneath the flowers to create dimension). Finally, added little beads of Liquid Pearls (silver) the the bottom of the dress.
Here is a pic of the sentiment & accessories upclose:
