It’s wedding season and I have 2 wedding receptions to go to shortly so what a fabulous excuse to make wedding cards. I’m a romantic little devil and few things make me happier than seeing people I love and care about getting married to one another. This card is for a very dear friend of ours Martin who we have known for 20 years and his good lady Seona. We have met her only once but she is lovely and they are happy together.

I have used this pretty image Lovely Flowers WeddingHorseshoe from Hope Jacare Doodles and coloured it with purples and lilacs which were the colours on the invite. I have cut the image out and matted it onto some purple cardstock for contrast.

I have made a circle shaped side step card from a tutorial by Beccy Muir at Beccy’s Place. This is the first card like this I have made but Beccy’s instructions were very clear and easy to follow.
I covered the front and card steps with paper from a wedding pack by Dovecraft that I have had for years and years.

The image was mounted on thin foam pads and then I added embellishments to the other side to even the weight distribution. The pearl spray is from some  wedding embellishments I have had for about 9 years. The heart punch is one of my faves and I have wrapped the stem of a flower around a kebabs stick and looped through it. 2 more flowers have been added on the steps. I use a punch to create some pretty butterflies and added some gems to finish off.

What a cool, funky wedding card Mandy... I love it! You obviously did a great job with the card fold, and I love the colour scheme you chose. My favourite element is the horseshoe, I love it! Well done.
