Victorian Wedding Card

Hello my crafting friends, good to have you back today, I really do appreciate your visit. Today I am showing the second card of the four I have made for work colleagues, this is the second wedding card for one who is getting married at the end of August.

I used Sheena Douglass new Christmas stamps A little Bit Festive Christmas for this I used the Victorian Gentleman & Victorian Lady. I stamped the Lady first and painted over the top with Pebeo Drawing Gum, once dry I then stamped the Gentleman next to her. I coloured them both in using Spectrum Noir Aquablend Pencils, the Lady was painted in using a Cream colour but for some reason it turned Grey looking I guess she wanted to match her man lol! I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen over the top of the Lady's coat and hand muff, the picture does not show this up at all!!!

I then die cut it out with the frame from Sue Wilson Italian Collection Calabria and cut the frame part out again and layered over the top then put to one side.

I inked up a piece of card with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, cut to size a piece of paper from the Crafters Companion Downton Abbey Paper Pad and ran it through the Ebosser in the Crafters Companion Downton Abbey Embossing folder Fleur De Lis then attached this to the inked card.

I cut a piece of White Satin Edged Organza Ribbon and wrapped it round both card pieces then attached it to my 8 X 8 base card and placed my framed couple on top. I made a small bow out of the same ribbon and placed this at the top of the frame.

Using a piece of Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card I die cut the  Motor Vehicle from the Crafters Companion Downton Abbey range of dies and placed this on the bottom right corner of the card, I felt this kept with the Victorian look.

To finish the card I stamped a sentiment from Crafters Companion Downton Abbey Clear Stamps Sentiments 2 on top of some inked card and paper to match the card and placed this in the top left corner of the card to balance it out.

Its a bit unusual for a wedding card but that is why I did it to be different from the normal ones they may receive.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
