This one is something of a sequel. Not sure if anyone remembers my Wedding Tryptic card & matching box for the 'main event' last year but I have combined a couple of elements from the wedding card for my niece & hubby for the one now celebrating their first anniversary together. The main element of which is the lattice-work & bells which I have incorporated into another shaped card, this one being a 'cascade fold'.
To do this, I first created my own cut-file for a cascade card, combining a larger 'back-plate' to add extra interest not only to the front view in the form of the 'heart-arch' shape but also to give me extra room to add an image. (Any excuse to colour!!!) To this I then added my own bells/lattice design into the front panels. I kept the colour-way used for the wedding (blue bridesmaids dresses) adding embossed mats for the larger 'cascades' though not for the smallest so that the fretwork design would show up better. I also added the couples initials into a central heart.
To the largest cascade elements, I also added floral embellishments & these multi-layered flowers are from 'Miss Kate Cuttables' (flowers with vine) & when I say multi-layers I mean loads of layers!!!! 3 for the leaves alone not to mention the flowers!!!! Like the rest of the card, the white on white flowers were cut from a combination of plain & different pearlescent card before being topped off with pearls & a few matching blue gems.
|Lots & lots of layers for dual-side flowers.|
On the reverse of the middle cascade I have added a sentiment to one side & the handwritten 'from' on the other.
The back-plate - again embellished with pearls - features a Precious Moments image coloured with Promarkers. Two more mirrored sets of floral bouquets (glued to the ones behind make then very sturdy), help frame the image too I think.
Hope you like it & thanks for visiting my blog!
