Here's a wedding card I made at my sister's request. Friends of hers will be getting married sometime this month.
I'm almost replicating here a wedding card that I made a few years ago, using the same bride-and-groom image. My sister particularly liked that card and she wanted one just like it but in a different colour scheme. The wedding colours include navy blue and very light blue, so I've made this card to match.
I didn't have any light blue patterned paper to use for the background, so I took a very light blue cardstock and embossed it instead.
A closer look at the oh-so-adorable image designed by Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps.
This image is called 'Love Me Do'. I've used the digital stamp version (which you can find HERE), but if you prefer the rubberstamp, that's also available from Whimsy Stamps HERE.
I've used alcohol-based ink markers to colour the image along with a few coloured pencils.
