The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Another Wedding Card using Basic Grey

Hello My Friends... I have chosen to put up this ornate wedding invitation. I have stepped out of the box today making this wedding invitation collection larger than life. I've chosen the 5.5"x8.5" size and everything on the cards were layered and ornate and with a victorian feel to them. I used a significant amount of gold bazzill to showcase the details. The pattern paper that I selected for this collection is Basic Grey's Cappella collection which is very special wedding pattern. Several complimentary embellishments go with this collection and I have used several. As I show other projects using this collection and if you like what you see, go ahead and email Deb and ask her to order some for you. There are the 12"x12" collection pads for layouts and cards which has all the paper selections as well as the 6"x6" pads for cardmaking enthusiasts. Each separate pattern compliments others within the collection beautifully. I used three separte paper patterns for this card front. I used the Cappella Stitched Brads as an accent on the bottom of the card and the Capella self-adhesive ribbon doilies as ribbon across the front. I then added KaiserKraft Pearls, Latte to accent on top of the ribbon for a old world "feel" to the card. There are 3 separate Spellbinder Dies used on this card - the first one is what I used to make the frame for the sentiment Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 2 and I matted the frame with Bazzill Gold Foil Cardstock. I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags to fashion end flourishes onto the Frame. Then for the sentiment, I used Spellbinders Classic Circles and Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circles to frame with the Bazzill Gold Foil. I used Just Rite stamps for the sentiment, in the middle of the frame; Romantic Sentiments Centers 1 5/8" circles and then used a selection of the 2" round Decorative Borders. If there is a product that you want that you don't see on the site, email Deb over at OC Scrapbookers and she can bring it in for you... On the inside of the card I used the Martha Stewart Daisy Fan Deep Edge punch to make a border accent at the top. This is one of my more detailed designs and part of a Wedding Invitation collection that I made for a couple's small intimate wedding. It was an honor to create their cards... Thanks for visiting everyone and all your comments are appreciated. Thank You...
