Blue and silver Wedding.

Hi, guys! I hope your week is going well! I am almost caught up with the washing and ironing created by our holiday last week in beautiful North Cornwall - we were only away for a week, so how come there was so much washing?!

I took a break from the dreaded housework to be creative. This card is for a lovely couple who will be married on Sunday: I have known the bride since she was a baby, it doesn't seem like over a quarter of a century ago!

As you can see, I got out my dies! The base card and Spellbinders Floral oval are in blue Centura Pearl. The Spellbinders decorative Labels 8 layer is cut from white card. The Tattered Lace dancing couple was cut twice, once in white card and once in silver glitter paper, I glued them together to give the image more body. Finally I added gems to the top and bottom of the white layer.

Quick and easy, but quite effective, I think!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Gorgeous! I will have to remember your trick to mountthe silver diecut on the bit of card to give it body as that is a great idea.

The dies you layered look really pretty together!

Sounds like a fun time was had by all in Cornwall. We hope to see that area on our next trip over to England. We used to watch a detective show that was filmed looks beautiful there...

I would certainly prefer crafting to housework any day.
The happy couple will love this. The die is gorgeous as is the colour.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
