And They Lived Happily Ever After!

It’s Wednesday, and I am back to share a wedding card with you. Love is in the air and who doesn’t love weddings? LOL! This week, I used Just Married – S070 for my main image and Lived Happily Ever After – G012 for the sentiment.

I decided to create a scene of the couple driving down the road as they are beginning their new journey as newlyweds. No worries, except a long open road and green pastures ahead.

To create the card I first stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut it out. Then I took a lead pencil and lightly drew in the lines for a road. I wanted the road to curve in order to imitate the couple going on a long journey. I coloured the image in with Copic markers. For the grass, I used various shades of green and then Copic Colourless blending solution and an old face cloth that had ridges on it. I added some of the blending solution to the cloth and lightly tapped it everywhere over the grass. I did this first as I didn’t want the solution to go over the main image.

After the image was all coloured in I mounted the image onto Recollections – Cranberry Cardstock and cut around it to make it square. Next I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop it up over the gold paper that I had die cut earlier using the same die cuts from My Creative Time.

The card is 6″ x 6″ AC White cardstock. I die cut K&C Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599345 with Heartfelt Creations – Fleur Border Basics – HCD1-7120 and the ran the die cuts through my Xyron Creative Station which enabled me to make stickers out of the die cuts. Then I mounted them on the card. I love the effect that they created. I also die cut some hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted using Recollections – Cranberry Cardstock. I ran the cardstock through the Xyron – Create A Sticker first to make it easier to just peel off the backs for the hearts and place them on the card.

I stamped the sentiment and mounted it on top of the gold paper and then popped it up on the card.
