A Royal Wedding Card


Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays! This week the challenge is "A Royal Celebration" create any project to celebrate Prince William and Kates wedding. For my DT entry I made this wedding card. I cut the bride's dress, veil, and the grooms tux from Sweethearts at 3 inches. I embossed the veil with Swiss Dots and the dress and background with the Textile Cuttlebug folder. After I embossed the dress I went over the embossing with gold powder to highlight the design. For the grooms tux I used a gold pen and colored in the tie, the lapels on the jacket, and added dots for buttons. The crowns were cut from Potpouri Basket at approx. .75 iches. I used my I-Rock and added gems to them. The sentiment frame was cut from Once Upon A Princess at 2 inches. I printed off the sentiment from my computer and added 3 gems using my I-Rock. I hope you all like my card and I can't wait to see your creations!
