Hello there. I have gone back to my roots – the first kind of card making I ever did. Very detailed, very time-consuming, and throwing lots of different die-cuts at it.
This is a card for a wedding I am attending next week. Neither of them follow my blog or Instagram – so I should be OK!!! 🙂
When I make wedding and anniversary cards for people I know, then I always turn to my Sue Wilson/ Creative Expressions dies and card-stock. This was – obviously – no exception.
I started by creating my shaker heart using the fillables collection from Sue Wilson, and I had to go to YouTube to figure out which part I did first and glued first. Once I had the heart stuck down to my embossed piece of card, I filled it with some pearl hearts and sequins, then stuck it down to a piece of Stampin Up glimmer card. I then concentrated on all the other die-cuts and the layout.
The heart die-cut is made for this shaker shape, and fits perfectly over the top.
The bow is cut from a Spellbinders die set – out of glimmer card – stuck in shape with a brad (you can’t see this brad), then attached with 3D glue. The swirls were also out of glimmer card for added fanciness.
The stick pins I made from scratch, and had to let the Glossy Accents dry before adding them to the card. The glossy accents is in-between each piece on the stick pin. I am glad I used 3D glue for the bow and swirls, because I then had to remove them to add a large foam pad, as something for the stick pins to go into, therefore covering the sharp end.
Here is a close-up of the stick pins and bow:
and here is the heart shaker element:
Both of these pictures show the glimmer card better, too.
A couple more random photos, including the inside of the card:
