Wedding Card by Chrissy Mac

Hello everyone.  I wanted to share with you all a wedding card featuring some wonderful classic die cuts using my Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  This lovely wedding couple is a must have in your craft tool kit as you just never know who might be getting married next.  This was actually inspired by a lovely woman named Eudora who was marrying her true love and wanted a keepsake card for the occasion.  Inside I placed a lovely picture of Eudora and her new hubby.

Weddings make me think of elegance, promises, memories and sometimes decadence.  The occasion is so often attended by family and friends all dressed in their very finest no matter the culture, religion or location.  Such thoughts surrounding making this card had me wanting to combine the classic elegance of cream with the metallic luster of silver.  For color I added various rustic warm peach and tans.  Almost makes you want to eat it, huh?  Oh yeah...we are talking about making a card...uh hum.  Anyways...

This card consists of 7 layers:  the base card in heavy cream color, a lovely peach and cream metallic
patterned paper, a heavy silver, a light brushed gold and a warm peachy brown.  I used 8 unique dies and a metal embossing plate from my Cheery Lynn Designs collection which included stacker frames, doilies, flowers, the wedding couple and I just had to use the "True Love" sweetheart candy die.  See my complete die list below.

Can you guess what on this card was a silly little secret crafty move?

No?  Well...okay then... I used reddish-pink sparkle nail polish on the embossed silver, the flower and the True Love heart for that extra "blingy bling bling"!  After all, weddings always have some sparkle right?


The Cheery Lynn Designs dies and die sets I used are as follows:


Thanks so much for joining me today.  I'll share more soon.  If you have any questions on how this was made, please don't hesitate to ask.  I read every comment and answer every question.

Wishing you peace and joy!
