This was the first card I made of this design, but was getting frustrated with it and ran out of time, so ended up going with the simpler version as shown below for my class. Still needs a few things tweaking on it – but I’ve moved on to other things now so will probably never happen. Thought I’d share it anyway.

I specifically chose vellum to stamp the bride onto, as being transparent means that you can reverse the image to face the other way if you like. Also tore the pink card under wording so you could see the multi-layers beneath, creating the illusion of softness and fragility. Of course I forgot all these things in my rush to finish a quicker, simpler version. Had also intended the green tag to be a bookmark that could be removed.

  1. Stamp bride onto vellum tag with black StazOn pad. Place mouse pad upside down on table top and place tag on it. Turn tag over and create a shading effect by dry embossing the skirt and veil area with a stylus tool. Colour in bouquet with peach Spectrum Noir pen (ensure you do this on the back also, or the Spectrum Noir ink will re-act with the StazOn ink). Stamp bride bodice onto thin Magic Mount sheet. Cut it out and attach into place over bride’s bodice on vellum tag. Edge tag with Fushcia StazOn pad.extra brides 004
  1. Stamp flourish image in top left of patterned card in black Archival ink. Stamp “Amour” wording into centre with same pad. Tear across bottom of card underneath wording. Sponge around outside edge with Sepia pad. Attach to peach coloured base card. Sponge around peach base card also.
  2. Position green tag into desired position on front of card (but do not attach yet). With the aid of a t-grid and vellum sheet, line up flourish on main card with green tag. Move away from main card and stamp flourish onto tag. Do the same with the wording. You can now attach green tag onto main card. The flourish and wording should line up.
  3. Attach vellum tag over green tag by means of Magic Mount on bride’s bodice. Glue pink ribbon bow to cover hole at top of vellum tag. Add dot of Fruit Punch Stickles to cleavage line of bride’s bodice and also to top of bouquet.
