This week it was my turn to choose an image for myself and teamie Choccie to use. I needed to make another wedding card so am using the cute image Wedding Bears by Reece’s Scrap Pieces. In the pack you get the image in colour for quick cards and black and white if you like to colour as I do. I used Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the image in, cut  it out and mounted onto 3d foam pads.

The base of the card is a sheet of patterned cardstock from Hunky Dory. It is the 1st time I have used their cardstock and I have to say I am impressed with how sturdy it is.  I have added some ‘ribbon’ which is actually a shoe lace from a pack of patterned ones in different lengths that came from the local pound shop some time ago. It is amazing what you can pick up from places that you can utilize in your crafting if you just look at it a different way.

The background paper is a wrapping paper which has holographic elements to it. I used a Crafter’s Companion die to cut it out, added some scrap cardstock on the back to strengthen it and mounted on foam squares for added dimension.

The ‘Just Married’ plaque is an embellishment I have had in my stash for at least 4 years. I’d had it so long that the sticky stuff on the back was no longer sticky (I am sure we all have embellishments that has happened to!) The top was looking a bit bare so I used my Martha Stewart Heart Lattice punch on a scrap of pink card and mounted it onto some really shiny silver paper (which looks white in the photo but I promise you it isn’t!)
