As simple as this appears it did take a good amount of planning and work. First I stamped & embossed the wedding couple on a greenish vellum. I painted the brides dress, veil & flowers with Twinkling H2O's but couldn't ever get it to shine just right for the camera. The frame was cut and embossed with oval nesties then wrapped with sheer white ribbon. Because I couldn't figure out how to attach the vellum to the frame attractively, I ran it through the Xyron and stuck it down to the panel then lined up the frame over it. The ribbon tabs are about an inch long - they only go around the edges of the panel so that they wouldn't show under the vellum.
Once everything was stuck down I felt like there was something missing. So I used the ticket corner punch from SU! on the silver panel and glued that to the green base. Some sticky back pearls were added, but it *still* needed something. I finally decided to add the flowers around the bottom of the frame (spritzed, of course, with some Pearl Glimmer Mist) and put more pearls in the centers.
I thought about adding a sentiment on the front (I have a lovely 'Congratulations' stamp that would've fit perfectly) but decided that the sentiment on the inside was lovely on it's own. It says 'You are two people who could do anything together.'. Isn't that perfect?? :)
Hope you enjoy it, too! Perhaps it will inspire you - isn't wedding season just around the corner?!
Thanks for stopping by!
