Sizzix and Cuttlebug Wedding Cards

Just a few cards to show you, made mostly with one Sizzix Die called Valentine Wreath, and with Cuttblebug Embossing folders, mostly done in soft shades AND with no figures or people on them for a change!

The first is made with a real feather and in very soft muted shades, with pearls and Ribbon and layering.
The heart shapes were cut with the Spellbinders Nestability dies in the plain heart and scalloped heart shapes, and the letter was done with just rite alphabet stamps which were stamped in embossing ink and heat embossed after adding white embossing powder.
The grey card is bazzill but not sure which shade as I have had it a long time..

The next two cards are similar in that they use a Whiff of Joy Stamp from their recent wedding collection, the dove one. I stamped and cut the dove from ordinary paper (not card otherwise you cant sponge right up to the outlines) and then stamped the dove onto cardstock.

Holding the cut out paper dove on the top of (or stuck on with eclipse masking paper) of the other stamped version, thereby masking the one underneath, I used a dauber to subtly apply ink from my baby blue memnto ink pad on the one card or cream from my colourbox chalk pads around the dove image, and then took away the masking paper.

The paper punching and embossing is as usual and the hearts positioned behind the tied ribbon are from the centre of the valentine wreath sizzix die and stuck on at various angles with different thicknesses of foam pads. - detail below

I hope you enjoedy looking at these and I have another card coming up in the next couple of days which I am working on for a Wedding Anniversary, its unusual and am sure it will make you smile and its 'different'!

thats all for today..
