Last week my friend told me that she is going to get married in France. I was so excited for her and to celebrate the occasion I bought a new stamp set, the Magnolia Bride and Bridesmaid stamp set. For her card, I started with a base card 13cm x 13cm made from Whisper White cardstock. I then added a few layers of different cardstock. Next I used the Spellbinder Fleur De Lys die, to punched out a two different sized circles, which I then embossed it with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. I stamped the Magnolia stamp twice and coloured them both in using various inks and a blender pen. I cut out one of the stamped images, to add a little depth bride and the bridesmaid.
For the wedding dress, I used Frosted White Shimmer paint and I added small pearls to form the necklace around the bride’s neck. I punched out a series of flowers to which I made incisions to form petals and added small pearls to the centre. I adhered the flowers to the base card as well adding some small punched out hearts and two embossed Fleur De Lys symbols. I finished off the card by adding ‘Congratulations’ from the Well Scripted stamp set.
