Mr & Mrs

I made this card for a friend's wedding - I kept the design simple as there is so much detail on this lovely die cut.  I'm entering Die Cut Diva's 'Anything Goes for August' challenge,  Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Die: Taylored Expressions 'Mr & Mrs'
Card: Gold pearlescent
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Baskets and Bunnies'
Other: Diamond Stickles, White Candy BonBons

I attached the die cut to the corner of the sheet of pink paper, where the colour was most intense, using Stick and Spray.  I trimmed the paper around the edge of the die cut and attached it to the card blank leaving an equal white space around the top, bottom and left side of the card.  I then trimmed the right side of the card blank.  To finish I filled the centre of the hearts with Diamond Stickles and added white BonBons to the centres of the large flowers.

This is a very pretty die cut Kath and the gold pearlescent card goes beautifully with that pink LOTV paper in the background and the Bon Bons and stickles are great finishing touch on this lovely wedding card. x
