Wedding bells !

No not is a card I've made for an order. I always struggle with wedding cards for some reason so was quite pleased with the finished article ! The image and the sentiment is from Squigglefly and I've shaded the cake with ProMarkers. I've cut it out with Labels 3 Nestabilities and rubbed some more Victorian Velvet DI around the edge. The background is made using Victorian Velvet DI then I stamped with the same ink using my favourite Crafty Individuals stamp.

I've whizzed around the edge with the sewing machine and added some pearls. The dots on the cake are small blobs of Perfect Pearls.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

I feel quite spoilt today as I've spent the whole day pottering in my craft room. I've managed to catch up with my DT cards and orders so feel quite relaxed at the moment ! Don't suppose it will last though Hope you're all having a relaxign week end.

Thanks for looking


  1. Oh this is beautiful Sue - I just love the way you use the Distress Inks. Doesn't it feel good to have time to yourself - enjoy it while you can lol.

    Love Lynda xxx

  2. This is so pretty Sue, i love how you have coloured the cake and added the pearls. I'm useless with perfect pearls. For some reason mine end up as Perfectly Pointy Pearls but yours look nice and round.
    I've been meaning to ask, when you do your background paper, do you use foam to rub the ink on or apply ink directly to a craft matt and sprits with water before dipping the paper in? I have a vintagy card i need to do and would like to make my own background, it's weeks away but you know how this makes me hyperventillate and it's beginning to haunt me a night now lol!
