Chantilly Paper Lace Wedding Card

I was asked to make a Wedding Card by a beautiful 83 year old lady - it was for her granddaughter who was getting married on the weekend.  She wanted it to be special, soft and romantic - because her granddaughter is very special to her and she wanted the card to convey this.

I cut/embossed the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Tallulah Frill Layering Frame Small Etched Dies Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken using soft pink card stock and adhered it to a card base created using the cutting edge of the Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken.   Cut two Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace edge Dies, score the top of one at 1cm and fold forward.  Add adhesive to the 1cm portion, attach the front being sure to line up the pattern - Making a patterned card base has never been so easy!

The next layer has been created by cutting embossing the Nestabilities Labels 46 - Decorative Element Etched Dies #2 #3 (#1 being the smallest)  The flowers on the #5 Die have been sponged using Imagine Memento Luxe ink in Rose Bud and a sponge dauber, with a Want2Scrap medium white pearl added to the centre of each flower. Adhere the #5 Die onto the larger die using double sided tape and pop both layers up onto the centre of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

White card stock has been cut/embossed using Nestabilities Celebrations Pierced Circles Etched Dies using the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and used as a stencil by sponging inside the Die using Imagine Memento Luxe in Rose Bud before removing from the Die and being popped up onto the centre of the layered card front.  A small recycled rose has been adhered to the centre of the Pierced Circle.

The Penny Black Inc. sentiment has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, trimmed with a dove tail added to the right hand end.  The edges have been sponged around using Rose Bud Ink and popped up under the Pierced Circle.  A small pink button been glued onto the left of the sentiment, a Want2Scrap medium White pearl added to the centre of the button and liquid glitter added to the button.  The names have been computer generated and popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.
