Wedding card

Today I have a couple of wedding cards to share.  I think they are so fun!
Here is how the card looks closed.  It is a standard A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") when folded. The tux is from Wedding Solutions cart and the wedding dress is a mix of two dresses from Tie the Knot. Both measure 4 1/4" tall.  I welded them to the card base to they can each fold out to revel the second layer of the card.

Here I added some wonderful Heidi Grace paper. It has a black background with some medium gray swirls (that doesn't come out in the picture). I cut the little 1" bells from the Wedding Solutions cart. The "Congratulations!" is from Scrappy Mom's Stamps and it's embossed in white. I love how they are both hidden by the front layer.

Here is the last layer of the card. The black card layer opens up to reveal the sentiment "Wishing you the best, today and always. Congratulations!" in Edwardian Script.

Here is the dress up close. I cut it out of white shimmer card stock.  After embossing it with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, I attached it with quick dry glue and added some liquid pearls and clear Glaze pen accents around the edge of the dress.

The tux also got some clear Glaze pen accents, but I also popped up the lapel and bow tie up on pop-dots.  The shirt layer is cut with some more white shimmer paper. The little buttons on the tux are added with more liquid pearls.

I made a second card that is just slightly different.  On this one, the bride and groom are reversed, so is the "Congratulations!" on the second layer.

Again, I embossed the Scrappy Mom's stamp and added the little bells.

Here is the complete look at the final layer of the card. The card base it cut in Ivory, but it sure looks yellow in this picture. Sorry, today was the last day of school for my kids and I couldn't start crafting until they went to bed.... ie no good lighting for my pictures! :)
