It has been a LONG time since I've had the time to create! But could NOT miss the opportunity to create something special for my godson's wedding! I experimented with several different versions, using different supplies and different dies and agonized over the paper and fussed and fussed - till I finally achieved this pretty little thing. Hope I succeeded and the lovely bride and groom liked it!
Used Cheery Lynn's - Wedding Vow die - cut and layered 5 times -- I used only 1 of the outside trellis but layered the bride & groom part 5 times. It was a satin material-like cardstock that I got at my LSS.
Swarovski crystals in the center -- and MS pearls throughout the trellis portion.
Satin ribbons & embellishment from AC Moore and rose ribbon decorate the bottom.
Background paper - silver floral from Anna Griffin (LOVE her stuff!!!! :) ) and a gold metallic from the couple.
After all the fussin' - I was finally satisfied! oohhhh but what an multi-day ordeal! :)
Thanks for taking a look!Description

WOW! Multi day cards are a lot for work but WOW look at those results! It's phenomenal! Did I say WOW? The layers, bling, pearls- incredible. If you made that rose ribbon I do hope you share a tutorial! That is SO elegant and so much heart is into it too.
Into favorites it goes.
