Our Christmas break is over and it's time for another challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog. We're back to fortnightly now and the challenge for this fortnight is...
X for Xtra Special Occasion!
We're also running a DT call so make sure you put your name down as I can't wait to see who my new teamies are!
Here's my project for the challenge..
I made this for my cousin who got married yesterday and I made their wedding stationary. As the theme for their stationary was winter themed I went with that for their card. Here's a close-up of the card
The image is from Tiddly Inks called "Me and you baby" which I coloured with copics. I then spread glossy accents all over her dress and gave it a coat of glamour dust so it really sparkles!
I didn't use any design papers on this one. Instead I cut a spellbinders wonky rectangle out of a square of card and stamped a U-Mount stamp from the Funky Floral set around the edge of the card and heat embossed some super sparkle holograph embossing powder using Versamark.
I attached some acetate to the back of the card and then used some foam tape around the shape and the edge of the card. I put some polar white flower soft and some glamour dust into the space left over the acetate and then attached it to the card blank - making a shaker card. A wee tip - if you give the acetate a rub with your anti static bag for heat embossing before you add the filling it will stop the glitter sticking to the acetate!
I printed out the sentiments and cut them out and attached them along with the cut out image onto the front of the card. Everything was distressed with some iced spruce distress ink.
I used the same swirly stamp and embossing powder on the inside of the card and used a sentiment from Lili of the Valley on the left hand side and a Stampin' Up! one on the right hand side.
I also decorated a candle for them but I forgot to take a photograph before I covered it over - you can just make out the decoration through the organza
And here's the whole candle
As I said, the wedding was yesterday and it was absolutely gorgeous! It started off a bit wet but brightened up a bit in the afternoon. A great day was had by all!
