As you know I was recently in the UK for my Nephew’s wedding and this is the card I made for him and his beautiful bride :-) The invitations and colours of the wedding were Red, Blue and Ivory so I used them too :-)

I love this Penny Black Bride and Groom stamp, simple and stunning I think :-)

I stamped twice with Memento Black ink onto Neenah card and coloured with Copics, I then layered the bouquet and adhered with Scrap Dots (fab product) :-) I cut out the hem of the dress before using a Spellbinder’s Grand Oval die and running it though the Grand Calibur machine. I used red coredinations for layering and for cutting out the Memory Box Cherish Border and I used a Hearts M-Bossibilities folder and some ivory stardream paper for the background. I coloured some white Prima roses using a Copic Air Brush and a R27 marker and used a Heart Swirl die too.

I finished with some Hero Arts Champagne pearls, some red satin ribbon and a diamante ribbon slider that I bought eons ago and saved for a very special occasion :-)

I decorated the inside too :-) I printed the sentiment on my comp and used a lovely Simon Says Stamp Exclusives Fresh Daisies die ( LOVE this )

I made a box too !! the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Words set. This was in the June Card Kit,, LOVE these kits :-)

and now a photo of my nephew Craig with his beautiful bride Brittany :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Piali and the DT have made some amazing cards so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
