Yesterday I finished the wedding tag I was working on when I posted for WOYWW on Wednesday and here is a couple of photographs:
I had to make the box to match too.
This tag is very similar to the one posted on Wednesday - for a peek click here. The main difference is that I've used a slightly different digital stamp from Pink Petticoat, it's still Lola's Big Day but she's wearing an ivory dress and the bridegroom is wearing the kilt.
I start by cutting out a tag in cardboard (I use the backs of envelopes used for sending photographs but any reasonably thick card would do) from a homemade template measuring 6.5" (16.5cm) long and 3.5" (9cm) wide. then I cut the template out twice in design paper, in this case I used two different designs. For the front American Crafts 'The Colour of Memories' and the paper for the back was from Flair Designs Love Collection, 'Love and Marriage'. The card is then covered with a coat of white Gesso and then a coat of white acrylic paint, this ensures that there's a good foundation and that the edges are covered. Then the DP is adhered to both sides.
Stamps used: Papermania AlphaMania (the couple's initials); an Anita's stamp which appears to be nameless but the design has script, hearts and blots; Papermania Boutique 'A Perfect Day'.
Silver embossing powder; black ink pad; Promarkers; iridescent glitter; Stickles in Crystal; Wild Orchid flowers (white roses, cherry blossom, white rosebuds) heart shaped pin (decorated with gems from stash) and a blue crystal spray; small blue roses and heather sprays from The Works; ribbons and pearl trims, bell, key and heart charms, fibres in shades of white, blue and heather all from stash.
Materials used for the box: base in plain white card; top in pearlescent white card from The Paper Mill Shop.
Flowers as before and label is from a Magnolia die.
In my next post I will show you the anniversary tag that started it all.
In the meantime I hope you have all had a lovely Valentine's Day - I know I have. We stayed in, which, according to the news, is what most couples are doing and had a lovely celebration dinner. DH did present me with a dozen red roses and here they are:
Gorgeous, aren't they.
