A wedding card for 3 challenges

Hi there!

I have a card to share today which was so much fun to make !

I used an image I have used for a couple of wedding cards before, and I find it really interesting to see how my style and skills evolved from the first time I used it!

If you would like to take a look, you are welcome to click   here ,  here  and  here  ;)  








I was once again pleasantly surprised to see what delicate cuts are possible with the Silhouette . I think my favorite part of the card is the silver lining on the inside of the window of the shaker card. It's only 2 mm thin, and cut from silver mirror card stock. To create the confetti for the wedding couple, I added silver seed beads, sequins, and a couple of punched hearts.

The name of the font used for the sentiment is called Mf Wedding Bells. The sentiment  reads Congratulations in Afrikaans.

The challenges:

The paper players  ~ Black, white, silver and one other color

Inkspirational  ~ Silver

Cas-ual Fridays  ~ precious metals


       



Thanks so much for visiting me today... enjoy the rest of your Sunday... and have  a great week!

OOOOooo, so elegant en stylvol vir 'n troue, vrou!!!!! Ek moes gaan kyk na die ander drie en almal is net eenvoudig pragtig!!!! Ek hou baie van die wat jy ingekleur het ook, maar hierdie een met die tikkies pienk op die blommetjies en die das en die slim shaker met die pragtig silwer randjie is net so wonderlik mooi!!! Ek hou daarvan dat jy als so in die onderste hoek het met die white space aan die bokant - dit werk perfek!!!! Dis regtig mooi, vrou!!!!!
Groete en 'n lekker week!!!!

It was amazing to look at how your style has developed using the same stamp, sometimes I'm afraid to go back into my web pages lol. Love this card and the silver border is genius Hannelie!

Nora N. said...

This is stunning!! I LOVE how you framed that stamp with the gold. Wonderful design!!

This is such a fabulous card, Hannnelie! I think you are right in that the thin silver lining around the shaker is an awesome part of the design. It adds a very special design element and really makes your card shine.

This image is really, REALLY awesome! And, I love how it has 'evolved' over the years! The shaker element is pure genius! Love the assortment of 'confetti' that's inside!

This is so elegant. Hannelie. I love that it's a shaker and that you put the date along side the image. I went back and looked at the others and they are all wonderful but this one is special. I hate to go back and look at some of my old cards. I usually say "What was I thinking?" lol

Happy Dance said...

This is the best one yet! And I say "yet" because I know that you have more fabulousness up your sleeve! The bride and groom are going to love this card. I'm sure it will go into their wedding scrapbook. Your use of the Silhouette has once again shown your prowess with it. I think this is one of the prettiest, coolest, most fantastic wedding cards ever! I love this one!!!! Bev
