Wedded Bliss

Hi all, hope that you are well today :o)

Today I would like to share with you a card that I have made using the Wedded Bliss Paper Collection.

Now I wanted a soft romantic feel to my card and so the Wedded Bliss Papers were perfect.  Quite a few of them have this lovely lace detailing on them, truly beautiful!  I printed the papers out onto 160gm paper and distressed the edges with Distress Ink.

I used a Whiff of Joy Wedding Cake stamp for the main feature and coloured this with Prisma Pencils. 


 I used the papers all the way through the card, to compliment the front.  I have made a little pocket on the left to hold some money for the happy couple :o).....


These papers really are beautiful and perfect for many occasions not just Weddings.  

To save on printer ink, I always re-size the papers in Photoshop first, so for example this card measures 5"x5", so I re-size the papers to this.  Your best to re-size rather than crop them, as cropping can remove all the fabulous detailing from the edges, where as re-sizing shrinks them down, keeping all the detailing.......so basically they make mini versions of the original 12"x12"


Thanks for taking the time to check out my card today!

See you all soon :o)
