Wedding Card

A friend at work asked me if I could make her a card to take to a wedding she is going to in a couple of weeks. This is what I came up with.

I cut my card base using the Sophie cartridge at 5 1/2".  I used my Gypsy to hide the cut out that was on the front of the card. I then cut the layer at 5 1/4" so it was just a little smaller than my card base. My card base once folded measures 5 1/2" X 4 1/2" so it will fit in some invitation envelopes I picked up at Walmart awhile back. I embossed this layer with the three dots folder I have from Sizzix. I added this layer to the card front with some foam tape. I spritzed this layer and my white bride and groom with some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist which gave it a light gold shimmer.

I cut my bride and groom from white cardstock at 3 1/2" and the shadow out of black and adhered them together. I adhered the bride and groom to the card front with some foam tape as well. I then used some White Liquid Pearls to add pearls to the back of the dress, the brides hair and to the scallops on the card. Finally I stamped my sentiment with a CardzTV stamp and adhered that to the card front with some foam tape as well and then added a sheer white ribbon tied in bow to the fold of the card.

I am entering this card in the challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut where the challenge is to make a Wedding or Anniversary card. And I am entering it in the CardzTV Design Team challenge which is anything goes.
