A Wedding Card

Weddings and me are like pink and me, they just don't mix very well ! So for my Katzelkraft DT project I decided to do a not very traditional wedding card for a friend at work.

The main image is from the Paris/Adore set of stamps and has been cut out with Nestabilities Labels 18 and I've put one of the die cuts from the Fancy Tags 2 behind it. The text is also from the Paris/Adore set of stamps and I've used Tea Dye DI to distress it.

The embossed panel is made using the Victoria EF and I've used a Martha Stewart edge punch. The background is made using a swirls stamp from the Physalis et Petits Oiseaux stamp set. I've stamped it with Scattered Straw DI and then blended more around the edge with a little Tea Dye too. The flower is made using the Tattered Flowers Tim Holtz die, and I cut up the lining of a basket for the material ! The gorgeous brad is one of my precious Marah Johnson brads. I did the date and initials on my PC and used a Tim Holtz die to cut them out.

I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge which is distressing.

All of the stamps I've used are available exclusively in the UK at The Craft Barn or in France from Katzelkraft.
