Hanglar Wedding Wishes - Basic Grey & Stamp Something

Another project completed and this time I can enter the card into two challenge blogs. Basic Grey, Week 3 Inspiration Challenge have asked for a card to be created taking inspiration from the picture shown above and Stamp Something asked for a card using a favorite stamp and the addition of a punched design. Basic Grey Photo - for me it symbolised elegant, fresh, clean lines with different textures. Stamp Something - not difficult choosing a favorite stamp or adding punched detail to a card. I love this Hanglar & Stanglar image. It's really easy to colour and as I have three wedding cards to make will come in very useful. I am pleased with the card although I did mess it up a little with the sentiment. I had planned to put it at an angle above the image but after sticking everything in place I found it didn't look right. The best place would have been above the image, however this would have only looked good if I had moved everything down. Not an option as I had glued everything in place. So the only place for it was at the bottom. Not perfect but I have learnt from this so won't make the same mistake again. To make this card: Card/Paper - A3 linen card cut down to approx 25 x 16cm Moss Green Dotty Bazzil Card to cover the front Layered with Bazzil Pearlescent Cream Card Top layer, Basic Grey, Chintz 12x12" paper part of the Porcelain range Image Topper - Hanglar & Stanglar Wedding Stamp stamped onto Bristol Board Coloured with Copics Edged with green Ink Layered onto Silver Bazzil Pearlescent Card & Bazzil Pearlescent Cream Card Text - Using my hot Foil Wizard i have written the text using silver foil onto quartz Stardream paper and layered onto silver Bazzil pearlescent card. Embellishments - Graphite Organza Ribbon - Pearl gems Tools - Punch from Craft Habitat I haven't taken a picture of the inside but I used more of the Basic Grey chintz paper to cover the inside and the inked the edge of some white paper and fixed this in place leaving a large border. To finish everything off I made a box and decorated it with a strip of moss green dotty card which had been punched both sides and engraved their names using my Hot Foil Wizard. Thanks for looking and I hope you like the card. Jenny
