Wedding Anniversary

The Sketch and Stash current challenge is this sketch:

And I have made a Wedding Anniversary card for a customer - it is actually a 10th Anniversary, which is tin or aluminum so I've gone with the silver pearlescent vellum to represent tin! I've used my slightly neglected Cuttlebug embossing folders - swiss dots and the swirls one and I've used my brand new Nesties! I have used them on a card earlier in the week, but this was my first play with them! I just don't blog my cards in the order of making! The ribbon is also new and was perfect for the card! The vellum is long neglected stash - I bought it a few years ago along with some gold as it was really cheap!

Anyway, the little people have been recreated from a photograph of the bride and groom 10 years ago and I've actually used a piece of real veil on the bride!

Most of the clothes have been hand cut - I've not used a die for many of them, or where I have, the cut part from Sizzix dies have been adapted to suit my needs. The champagne glass is confetti and I've added various seed beads to the brides head dress and gown.

The sentiment has been computer generated and I've used a nesties die to cut and emboss it.

  • Dies: Sizzix and Spellbinder Nestabilities
  • Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
