Here's my offering .....any Create and Craft viewers may think this looks familiar - that's because it was one of the samples I designed for the launch show of the Ooh La La Creations 'Yesterday's Memories' CD which aired on 27th January. The image and papers in the design are all from the CD and if you want to get a copy for yourself you can order it from Ooh La La Creations.
I started by printing 2 copies of the image from the wedding vinatge set folder and die cut a heart of just the couple's faces from one image I then used sticky pads to stick this over their faces in the other image to give a little depth. The wedding Day greeting paper is also from the same folder and this was matted onto gold card and trimmed to leave a narrow border. I also trimmed a small piece just to show the words 'Wedding Day' and matted it onto gold card to make the sentiment at the top right which I glued across a die cut heart I used the Celtic Heart design from Cherry Lynn..
The with love sentiment was from the tags and sentiments folder and was again mounted on gold card and trimmed to leave a very fine border. The gold heart die cut was one of those happy accidents that all crafters experience from time to time. The gold card was actually a little too thick for the Cheery Lynne die and all the really intricate bits didn't cut properly so rather than spoil the die cut by forcing the intricate bits out I left them in place to give an embossed look and leave a solid heart with just the edge cut out.
The wedding rings were cut using a Marianne die. Because of the vintage look of the image I used Kraft as a base and I covered this with a paper that I found in the bonus paper folder, which again was mounted on gold card and trimmed to leave a narrow border. The ribbon was recycled - it was wrapped around the lovely hand made Christmas cake that a friend of my dad's makes for the family every year. I washed the bits of icing off and dried it out and it works perfectly with the colour scheme. I raided the button box to find the painted wooden button. I finished off by adding a few golden coloured gems from my stash. Whilst this is a wedding card it could easily be adapted for an anniversary by changing the colours of the ribbons, gems and die cuts. and by replacing the greeting paper with a different patterned paper.
Inside the card I used backing papers from the wedding folder on the CD and edged them with gold peel offs. The die cuts are made with a Marianne die, and another of my happy accidents with Cheery Lynne die was used on the inside of the card. You can see the inner pages in close up below
