Not sure where to start with this one as it is quite a complex design - but suffice to say, it is all done using my favourite mediums of Silhouette Cameo & Promarker pens. Why damask? Well, I was working on this theme for a wedding card I needed (always pretty classy to my way of thinking), when I finally saw the actual invitation & as luck would have it, it was itself a damask design - black on white. Couldn't have planned that better! Decided to add touches of pearlescent gold to their colour-scheme too to prevent it all going a bit 'funereal'.
I had created myself a set of damask based cut-files a while back when I was 'playing' with my Cameo - a full set of variations on a theme which I tend to create when caught 'by the mood'. I layered two of these for the front and added rolled flowers to the centre-piece which, in this gorgeous pearlescent card, look for all the world like fine porcelain.
Layer upon layer on the inside of the card which folds/opens out with a central pocket panel and I had to adapt some of my damask cut-files so they fit into my chosen pocket shaping, not to mention the tag onto which I had added the LOTV image. Yes, a LOT of hard work & hours in this card! Personalised not only with the damask design but incorporating the happy couples' initials into a wedding 'ring'. The addition of pearls & black gems as finishing touches were bought from MeiFlower & the ribbon was from my stash.
|Decorated the back too - with an area for me to add my made by/signature.
