Scrapbook Sisters Challenge - Wedding


Gosh that was a little bit of an unplanned absence as I had every intention of blogging a bit more in the last week, but for one reason and another it didn't happen, nothing major, but I'll save it for another post :-D

Anyway - Wednesday again already (where is 2012 going!!) and it's time for this weeks Scrapbook Sisters Challenge, which this week is Weddings

I used one of the digis from LCI as I really like the fact that the bride and grrom look happy - so many B&G images look miserable... what's that all about!!

Anyway, as I've said before I love White on White for wedding cards (actually, not just for wedding cards!), but they are the devil to photograph!  I hope you can see all of the detail on here

I used the same basic layout as for this card, but fiddled around with it, and embossed the panels with a variety of embossing folders and stamped and heat embossed the spellbinders shape with a delicate butterflies background stamp by Kanban

I decided to cut my image out - resorting to a craft knife for the delicate bits and keeping everything crossed that I didn't slip.  Thankfully both the B& G survived with all their limbs still attached, and I'm glad I went as far as I did with the fussy cutting as I was able to give them some real definition -especially on her skirt -  by shaping them with a ball tool, I also really like the way the red pops against the white

Hope you like it!  The florishes were part of my Secret Santa pressie, so no idea what they are from!  And the lace was a pressie from Lee (thanks Lee!)
