One of my colleagues is getting married on Wednesday.  I made this for our team to give her at an afternoon tea we threw her last week.

Given how many wedding cards I seem to do at work, I wanted to do something different.  I know the colour the bridesmaids are wearing (it came up in conversation), but although I played around with that colour scheme for a bit I couldn’t get anything to work.  In the end I went for more muted colours – sage, cream, antique linen, burgundy.

The heart image was stamped on cream card, punched with a lace edge at the top, the other edges were distressed and then inked, a piece of green lace was wrapped around it and a gem placed in the middle.  This was then mounted on to a piece of torn and distressed paper.  This in turn was mounted onto sage cardstock that had been run through an embossing folder and then sponged with antique linen and aged mahogony distress inks.  Base card was sponged with antique linen, then a piece of distressed and punched paper was layered onto it before the other layers were added.
