Here Comes The Bride!

I had so much fun making this card today! I don't usually use much white, but I was bound and determined to have a white background on this card, and lots of sparkle! I stamped the image from American Art Stamp with Memento Ink on white PTI cardstock. I colored her with copic markers and used a Martha Stewart glue pen to adhere the Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the dress and veil. The main image was matted on PTI Lavender Moon and Plum Pudding (I LOVE this new color). The silky flower is from SU and I attached it to the card with a pearl tipped corsage pin and a PTI satin ribbon bow.


The edges of the main image and cardfront were edged with glitter. I used the thin double sided Scor-Tape from Scor-Pal and applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

The second card is designed as a Bridal Shower invitation. It's a pocket card with a blank inside sheet that is meant to be printed with the shower info, there is a little tab with the sentiment to pull the invitation out of the pocket.


The main image was colored with Copic markers and highlighted with Dazzling Diamonds. I was really covered with glitter today when I was done with these cards - I just sparkled in the sun!


Thanks for looking!

Wow - I always love your cards but these are just amazing. Love the colours you've chosen - so vibrant (even though you've tried to keep it white!!) and all the sparkly glittery bits. Fantastic!! Julie M from Ireland!
