One of my nieces is getting married and I wanted to make a card a little bit different and perhaps more personal.
The image, over the threshold, from Lili of the valley was coloured using Promarkers. Glitter was added to the flowers and flounces of the underskirt and the edges dusted very lightly with distress ink.
To make the frame I cut out white card and attached wadding to it. I then covered this with a remnant from my own wedding dress. ( Crafters always hoard things and a bride has to have something old!) This was then attached to the base card. I made some quilled roses and leaves and attached these inside the lower corners of the frame. Finally I added some sequin hearts and a peel off congratulations.
