tilda wedding card.

I made this card for a friend at work who asked me if I could make a special card for her to give her fiance on their wedding day.
I decided to use my new maid marion tilda as she looks a little bit weddingy!!!!! I stamped her on pearlescent paper and coloured her with my promarkers. I have tried to keep in my carrie's wedding colours for this card so tilda is quite plain really, just some blonde hair (like carrie) and a bit of a claret coloured red (i had to do that with one of my whispers pens as i don't have that colour in my promarkers). I cut her out with a scalloped nestie and ditressed the edges a bit with some tattered rose distress ink.
The inside of the card is in a tunnel style with little heart shapes cut out for the windows , I made 3 pages to pop some nice weddingy sentiments in.I used a claret coloured pearlescent paper and my gorgeous martha punch, I kept the little hearts that come out of the punch to make the confetti to stick on the white card.
I wrote the little sentiments on my computer and got scott to play with the document a bit so I could print straight onto the cardstock to keep it really neat and tidy.
Then I glued all the pages together with my atg (ooooh made it so much easier to do!!!)

I made a base for the card pieces to sit in on with my scorpal so that I could make a flap to close over the card, I think it looks really pretty. I put a strip of punched martha hearts border on it and the claret paper under tilda is embossed with hearts. I added a strip of organza ribbon and a bow on the front too.
When i had finished it I ditressed all the edges with tattered rose as it softens the sharp edge and I decided it looked more romantic!!!!!
I hope carrie likes it!!!!
Heres a close up of tilda, she looks so sweet!!!!

Well now I've bored you with piccies of my card I am going out to make another card!!!

Thankyou for popping in on me xxxxxxx
