LS Bride and Groom Card

Hi. Today I'm happy to be sharing my new creation for the new Lemon Shortbread Blog Challenge which is challenge #42. I've done a bit of experimenting with this make using two digital stamps merged together to create a Bride and Groom. The images I've used are Bride Gown and Kissing Couple. Here's where you can find more of Lemon Shortbread's beautiful images.


I've coloured them using Touch Five Marker and pencils. I've used die cutters to make the frame, flowers and foliage. I did a bit of recycling and experimenting with the windows pattern glass effect. I used a plastic milk bottle and ran a M&C Boutique flourish die cut that I got from The Works. It created this lovely effect on the reverse. So I decided to add it to my card. So you could see the effect I created more clearly I put dark blue card stock behind it. I must say I was pleased by how the window turned out. I computer generated the sentiment myself.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges

SBS May Blooms Double Diamond Fold Card

Hi. I'd like to share my very feminine double diamond fold card I've made for Simply B Stamps Facebook Group Progressive Challenge. I have to say I really enjoyed creating with this beautiful image called May Blooms Digi.
