Hint Of Teal Wedding

Here is the wedding card that I made from us for Orla, the daughter of a good friend to my husband's family. I wanted to make a quite contemporary card using the Papermania Hint Of Teal kit, especially since I knew I'd have to make a more traditional card from the in-laws to give.

I decided to make an A5 card, which is unusual for me.

I started by choosing a couple of the papers from the kit and matted them onto the card blank and grey card.

A length of silver organza ribbon was tied around the panels and a sticker from the kit was attached over the ribbon. In retrospect, I think I should have matted the sticker onto some of the grey card but of course I only thought of that after I'd stuck it down, and it was impossible to get it back up again without damaging the rest of the card.

A white Papermania Imaginisce paper flower was colour tinted using Brilliance Starlight Silver ink and attached to the card. Green faux gems from Papermania, to match those on the sticker, were attached to the corners of the grey patterned panel and the centre of the flower.
