Cute Bird Wedding Card



I was recently asked by a colleague whether I would be willing to make a wedding card for someone. Would I ever! I think it's always great to get asked to make cards, although people seem to think it's an inconvenience. No, no, no!! It's the only way I can justify my "investments" in my inflated crafty stash. So I got out my Lawn Fawn Happy Wedding stamp set and set off to have some fun!

I started by inking up a piece of hammered white card with three shades of purple Distress Ink and splattered some water onto the background to create a slightly distressed look. I stamped the super cute birds, the cake and glasses of champagne on white card, coloured with Copics and die cut with the matching dies. I also die cut a banner from a scrap of purple card and the sentiment from silver mirri card.

I would like to link up with the following challenges:
The Card Concept - Purple Haze (inspired by the glass bottles to make the purple background with the splatters)
CASology - Icing
Just Add Ink  - Inspiration Image (inspired by colour combo of purple and yellow)






Card: White hammered 250 gsm card, Neenah Solar white smooth card, scrap of light violet card and silver mirri card
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Memento Black, Distress Inks Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord, Copics, Wink of Stella
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Happy Wedding and matching dies
Dies: Lawn Cuts Banner dies, Scripty Congrats die

Definitely delicious looking marzipan icing if ever I saw some! I had to laugh at your comments about making a card for someone and justifying those 'investments'! I know exactly what you mean!! :-) I am sure your colleague is going to love this card, let alone the couple they he/she has ordered this card for! So glad you could join us at CASology this week for our ICING Challenge!

Oh my, so very sweet (or even, tweet). Love your background & the cake image is beautifully coloured too. Keep justifying those purchases - I think I need to use that too. Glad you could join us at Just Add Ink this week.

Oh this is very cute! I just love, the love birdies perched on top of the cake, coloured canary yellow they really pop against that soft purple background. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
