A Wedding Classic?!...

Hi folks.. How's it going? Today I would like to share with you another sample Wedding Card I have made for a friend’s wedding in June.It's very classic looking, and out of all of the samples I have made to date, this one is my fave....The image came from a die cut topper set from Hunkydory.I wasn't too keen on the edge which came with the topper, so I chopped it offand matt and layered it with my own choice of edging. This was put to one side whilst I prepared my base card.To start off with I cut out two edges in Gold Mirror card using a die from the Spellbinders set Persian Accents (S5-078). I've used this die on a previous project (which is on display in the shop), and at that time I used it on the Cuttlebug using the standard sized plates. Knowing full well that the die was longer than the plates I still proceeded to use it. And low and behold the edge of the standard Cuttlebug plates made an indentation in the Spellbinders die, although it cut perfectly well I can only think that this indentation will have weakened the die. I really would advise you to be careful when using a die which is bigger than your machines plates. Either treat yourself to longer plates or use these longer dies through the Grand Calibur machine, which is how I cut these images out.I then adhered them to my base card, which was part of the set which came with the Hunkydory die cut.This in turn was matt and layered onto some Gold Mirror card to keep the Black and Gold theme going throughout the project.I then added my topper.
As I had placed it to one side on the project, this left a big wide open space! Far too big for a sentiment.So, I cut out a shape using the Cheery Lynn Mega Flourish Two die (B169) in Gold Mirror cardand placed it on the project to finish it off.Now, that's one classy looking card me thinks!! Even if I do say so myself..
It will be on display in the shop this weekend, so if you are a Pinnacle Crafts Club Member and you are coming to our discount weekend this weekend then you can take a look at it in the flesh then..
