Wedding Day . . .

Hello Dies R Us Friends!
It's Darlene ... here again to share my card creation using various dies from the Dies R Us Store that I hope will inspire you!  Have you been following along through out the week?  What amazing designs and ideas my team mates have all shared !  WOW!  I too have drawn wonderful inspiration from this group!


What fun it was to create this Wedding Scene!

First, let me give you the list of dies I used ...

Frantic Stamper 'Wedding Day' #FRA-9121
Memory Box 'Party Music' #98757
Poppystamps 'Grand Gothic Iron Work' #850
Cheery Lynn Designs 'Victorian Picket Fence' #B123


The walls of the 'church' were created by embossing the upper portion of a white panel using the Sizzix Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder and sponged over top with Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink.

The  [ 'Party Music' ] music notes (there's always beautiful music at a wedding) were die cut from black card stock and popped up with pop dots.


To create the 'stained glass' panel, I simply scribbled various pastel colors with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers onto white vellum.  Die cut my 'Grand Gothic Iron Work' using thin gold metallic card stock and glued the reverse side of the vellum to the back side of my gold die cut.

After the glue dries, simply cut away the excess vellum with either your scissors or craft knife.


For the fencing, I simply die cut my 'Victorian Picket Fence'  with white card stock.
BUT ... I did cut the lower portion off because it was a bit too high for the scene I was trying to create.  And, I also cut a small section out of the center, as an opening so they could walk into the church!

There are SO MANY things you could do with this fabulous 'Wedding Day' couple. 
I die cut the entire die with white card stock first,
then die cut the groom again in black card stock,
and the bride in ivory card stock and paper pieced over the white panels.
A little coloring was done for the hair, face, headpiece, dress accents with alcohol markers.

Tip:  You could add lace, tulle, pearls ... so many things for the brides dress.
And you could make the grooms tuxedo any color you wanted. 
Here's a fun thought ... if you knew the wedding colors,
 you could coordinate your card to match the bridal party! 
They would be so impressed!! LOL

  2. Darlene you have created an outstanding wedding card. Love the stained glass window and the music diecut across the top, helping us imagine the music coming from the church! Clever use of the die for the bride's train and both bride and groom are well done....
