Mr and Mrs

There are always weddings in the summer months and my niece is getting married later this summer so I made her card early as if I left it till nearer the time other things would get in the way and I didn't want to rush a card for such a special occasion.

I used a funky kits sugar nellie image (which is on sale) called first dance and coloured with promarkers I used greys and pinks as these are her wedding colours and the colours of her invitation. 

I used several grand oval spellbinder dies to cut the base cards and layers for the card using white card for the bases and Lily of the valley paper (I think) for the coloured layers. 

I used another Spellbinders die to make the central plaque for both layers of the card which I decided to make as an easel card.

The lower layer will be where I will write my message . The sentiment on the base not only sends wedding day wishes but acts as the stop for the easel part of the card. I raised it using sticky pads after stamping it using versafine ink and another lily of the valley stamp.

The top of the card used the same die to create the plaque to which I attached the couple stamped image to one side and a crafter's companion Mr and Mrs die towards the other, which I cut in grey pearlised card just like the plaque mat on both layers.

I finished the card with some cute little memory box dies the hearts I covered with versamark ink and used moonglow magic pearls embossing powder on the hearts and pale pink promarker on the ribbons. 

The flowers are from my stash shades of pink of course and some die cut foliage beneath. 

The bit that joins the 2 card layers I cut from white card and used a Martha Stewart border punch to pretty the edges.

I'm sure she and her hubby to be will have a wonderful day and future together and I hope my card will add just a little bit of magic to their day.

For those worried my post will spoil her surprise needn't worry as she doesn't even know my blog exists so I have no worries about he seeing her card.
