Good Morning Crafty People.
How are we all doing today?
July is my busiest time for wedding anniversary cards and I always get to the point were I am at a bit of a loss as to what to do especially as most of the cards are going to the same people.
After hours (and I mean hours) of research which involved chewing my husbands ear off, and searching websites, I still hadn't decided on a layout, it was only when I was looking through photographs of my parents scrapbook I made them for their 30th Wedding Anniversary; That the idea hit me.. What about using a wedding photograph on a card.
That was it the idea started flowing and before I knew it the card was made.
I used my wedding card stock in the pink and white for the card, with a colour photograph of my parents wedding. I love the vintage feeling of the card. My parents have been married for 34 years. Both young sweethearts when they got married, I think my mum was 18 and my dad was 19.
The card base was cut using a Spellbinder Nestability Labels One Grand Shape.
I matted and layered this up with pink and white card stock, printed the photo and made this square to fit into the last layer of the white.
I made home made roses and added these to the bottom, I added wild orchid craft flowers to the edges to compliment this. I finished the card of with a swirls, three butterflies, some liquid pearls and pearls in the center of the flowers.
The inside of the card was matted and layered with the same layers with a sentiment printed on pearl card, and a butterfly to edge it.. Unfortunately I forgot to get a pic of the inside of the card - oops
I am really pleased with how this turned out! It is the first card that I have made using an actual picture on the card, and I certainly don't think it will be the last.
