June Wedding by Alison (Craftytrog)

Hello Stampers! It's Craftytrog here! As the wedding season is upon us, I thought I would share a vintage style wedding card with you today. 


Here's how I made my card...

Stamp the man & woman from Collage Art 1 with Coffee Archival Ink, cut around the images, & ink them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink (DI). Add a little Victorian Velvet DI to the woman's cheeks.
Ink a paper doily with Vintage Photo DI, stamp some Script (Calligraphic Mat 15) in the centre with Victorian Velvet DI, then use gold embossing powder to emboss the edges.
Ink a square piece of patterned paper with Victorian Velvet DI, then add some Vintage Photo DI to the edges. Sprinkle some Gold Embossing Powder around the edges, & use a heat gun to melt it.
Use Victorian Velvet Distress Stain (DS) to colour some ribbon. I used plain sari ribbon, but you could also use seam binding. Make a flower by wrapping the ribbon around your four fingers in a figure of 8 three times, then tying it in the middle.


Assemble the patterned paper, doily & stamped images as shown, then glue the ribbon flower across the front, adding three pearl pins & a heart ribbon slide. Glue the ribbon ends behind the patterned paper.
Ink the edges of an 8x8 inch square card with Vintage Photo DI, then attach the assembled artwork to it.
Ink a posy of white paper flowers with Victorian Velvet DS, wrap it with some lace, then use a glue gun to attach it to the centre of the ribbon flower.
To finish, add an inked paper flower to the lady's hair.

I'll see you later in the month, with my second piece of art,
thanks for looking,
Alison xxx

You are right, it is definitely wedding season. That is a lovely vintage card, I really think that with The Great Gatsby and some other films, that the vintage look is very popular right now. I like the use of the Victorian velvet distressed ink, it is a nice touch of color.
