Firstly to all of you that are within the UK, I hope that you are all having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend whatever you may be up to!
So far we have had a bit of a wet one, but it seems to have brightened up somewhat this afternoon and hopefully it will stay that way! Not that it makes a huge amount of difference to me, since I worked yesterday and am doing so tomorrow. But on the plus side I get double pay, and have had the day today to chill with the hubby.
I have also been able to mock the wedding card design that I showed you in my last post into a finished card.
For the colouring of the text I went with turquoise to match the couple's wedding theme. I also used glitter on the dress and the flower headdress, but unfortunately no matter how I tried I couldn't really get it to show up in the photos.
The last issue that I had with the design was trying to find a button that matched the card. I knew that I wanted a heart and originally I was going to go for a pearl heart button, but try as I might despite the wonders of the internet I couldn't find one that was quite right. They either didn't match or would be to overpowering for the design.
I then looked at a number of different options including wooden heart buttons, but in the end I decided to experiment and paint a red heart button that I already had. I painted it white then sprinkled on embossing glitter, before heating it with an embossing dryer to seal the glitter to the button, and ta dah my little experiment worked!
I have to say that this design is definitely my favourite of the wedding designs that I have done so far, and I hope that the couple in question like it too. It's not long until their wedding now so it's all getting very exciting, and next weekend I am off on the hen night. We are going out for a meal on the Saturday night then out for a spa day on Sunday, which I am very much looking forward to as I have never done a spa day before. It shall definitely be needed by the weekend too, as I would just have worked the last and our most manic week at my retail job before the schools go back!
Thanks for dropping by as always x
