Verrrrrry quick post tonight as really want to enter a challenge that closes in a few minutes! So here is the second of the two wedding cards I had on my ‘to do’ list. Same stamp – LOTV ‘Over The Threshold‘ – as the first in ‘Worrisome Weekend & Wonderful Weddings‘ but different everything else.
I fancied doing some hand stitching so edged around the happy couple with silver thread. I also wanted to incorporate some bunting, first trying with the Sew Easy Stitch Piercer – Banners, but I didn’t like the look, especially with the Sew Easy thread, which is quite thick. After sketching out a bunting design, I pierced it freehand, and used the more delicate silver thread again. I stamped the bride and groom’s initials on the bunting to personalise.
I added a LOTV sentiment stamp, embossed in white, on a JustRite Label Die.
I have used a silver pearl paper as the first matting layer with Papermania Glitter vellum – Isabella – overlaid.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
As You Like It Challenge – Favourite Stitching – Real or Faux? – I prefer real because it’s very therapeutic in itself, just to sit and stitch. I also love the extra texture it adds to the card and it demonstrates care and time taken.
