Just wanted to share this "Mega" card that I created. When I say "Mega" I mean that is is pretty large. There are 3- 5 x 7 panels that make up this card.
I used real shells, the Cuddlebug Shell die cut set, and the Martha Stewart Branch and Frond punch for the sea weed and coral.
For each of the end panels the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Enchanted card creator dies were used. The colors of the wedding were turquoise and purple. The turquoise paper is a mulberry paper that was embossed.
Of course, it's a wedding and what wedding would be complete without the classic use of roses and pearls. The center panel is a wedding couple silhouette. The die cuts are Spellbinders 5 x 7 Labels Four. Diamond stickles were used on the edges of the coral and sea weed sprigs. Martha Stewart Feldspar Glitter was used on the shells and sea horses. I used a chunky glitter from Martha Stewart on the rolled roses.
Thanks for taking a look at my creation today. I sure do appreciate it. Have fun crafting and see you in the gallery!

Okay, how can this even be imagined much less brought to life Carol? Gosh, I have so many favorites of yours, but I have to say, this one is SO BEAUTIFUL and ROMANTIC and full of sparkle and details. I love the use of real shells mixed in with diecuts and the image is priceless. I'm just in AWE!!!!!!!

This is a MEGA card - it weighs 5 lbs and I know since I got to hold it when Crystal opened it up. She has it on her kitchen counter right now as she has no bookshelf or coffee table or china cabinet (yet). What a lovely thing to make for my sweet daughter - when she opened it, it was like you were there. Thanks so much my sweet friend - many hugz to you - 82,000 at least!
