#107 Wedding Tryptic

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - ribbons & bows
Sponsor & prize this week - Lili of the Valley - £10 gift voucher (I want to enter too....!!!)

This card is going to my God daughter/niece who gets married this year so I am getting this done in good time.  I designed, created & cut out the card base myself - well, you never know if you can until you try do you!  It was a bit problematic at times but for once, I managed to do exactly what my head had created.  A kind of tryptic with lattice side panels all cut from shimmering white & ivory heavy weight card.  I hope you can see it clearly enough. I even changed the colour of my light-box back drop so you could see it a little more easily.

I chose to use a simply gorgeous stamp from LOTV, (our generous sponsors this week), which I am sure most of you will recognise as 'Wedding Couple', and I did the honours with my Promarkers once again.  All the dots at their feet are meant to be the confetti in case you were wondering were I was coming from with that one. LOL. You might wonder too at the blue frame and coordinating coloured ribbons on the image but this apparently is the colour of the bridesmaids' dresses so I thought I would try to personalise the card entirely.

The fabulous satin edged ribbon which is such a brilliant match to my ivory card, was part of the stash I won over at Jak Heath's blog fairly recently. Wasn't I a lucky girl?!?!  Having run some of it across my embossed card, I managed to tie a fairly small bow for above the central panel's set of ringing bells.  The small crosses on the front & reverse of one of the side panels was cut using a couple of dies from Spellbinders rather than me cutting them out. This also meant that I could emboss them. I was a little tempted to add some flowers I must admit, but wanted to keep the card  flat enough to fold together. So although there is a bit of dimension from matting using a touch of glue gel there is nothing to impede the tryptic closing.

I then personalised the rear panel too, cutting out the name of the 'happy couple' with a space beneath so that I can write on the 'from' later. You can see the front of the side panels too from this angle and I have put a second layered Spellbinders' cross in a similar position on the circle so both crosses back onto one another.

Have really enjoyed making this one & I hope you all like it!
