Wedding Card for a Sister

The last wedding card I made was one for Ian to give his sister and her new husband and it was back to my favourite nine square layout.  There was lots of bling on this one with not a hint of green in sight.

White and silver linen, silver mirri, dufex silver heart and silver wedding script card were cut and layered to make the different tiers for this card. The bottom and middle tiers were made by layering up the cardstock with a grid of nine 5cm squares embossed on the top of the middle layer. I was introduced to the Scor-Bug Embosser recently and this little tool can create faux stitching lines, which can still be stitched, in seconds. On this card I left them as embossed lines. White grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around two corners of the bottom tier before the middle layer was added on top and held in place using silver brads.

The top tier was the nine little toppers. Squares of the different types of card were cut and layered using Woodware square punches and Spellbinder dies and silver thread was wrapped around the corners of five of the toppers. Embellishments added to the toppers were pearl, diamante ribbon slider and silver peel off hearts along with silver wedding and engagement ring charms and peel off dots. The sentiment and Elaine and Andy's names were printed from the computer and die cut and layered using Spellbinder heart and square dies.  A white grosgrain bow was added to the top left corner of the middle tier.

When looking for a suitable verse to print on the insert I came across this one which fitted the bill perfectly.

I cherish all the good times
that we've had throughout the years,
they've been peppered by the tough times
when we dried each other's tears,
and while the future is unknown,
I can plainly see,
I'll always be there for you,
just as you'll be there for me.
I also made a matching wallet for Ian's gift card.

Just one more wedding piece to write about and then normal service will be resumed.

Thanks for reading today
