Paper pieced wedding card
Make me a wedding card please - a request from a friend. What could I say? What kind? How big? Colours? Anything was the reply. Thinking cap donned. Here we go .... travelling out of my comfort zone again. Anyway, to cut a long story short.... I came up with this ...
Using the Bride and Groom digi from Karen's Doodles, I paper pieced the bride's dress and shoes, after printing it onto a white pearlised paper onto the plain white card of the base. I had to cut an extra hand for the groom as well or he would have lost it - the 3d dimension would have been "out". The edges of the dress and the bodice were then treated to a small dose of stickles. The main image coloured with promarkers. This was matted onto silver mirri board as was the small panel.
The backing paper was a gift from a friend so unfortunately do not know the source. The lace, lilac flowers, silver ribbon etc from stash. I made the bead and pearl pins. I also made a box, covered with the same backing papers as used on the card as was the ribbon and flowers.
I'm happy to say both the bride and groom loved it........phew.
I'm going to enter this into the Allsorts challenge this week for paper piecing
