Tilda Wedding Card

Good afternoon everyone and what another gorgeous day it is.  I hope it will last as I'm off on my hols next week - even if it isn't it'll be nice to get away.

My card today is for a colleagues wedding which takes place today and we are going to the evening do.  I thought I would get away from the traditional white wedding card and get up to date a bit.  I just love this Tilda stamp which I have coloured with copics (hair and skin) and the remainder I've used Tim Holtz distress ink pads which I'm just getting into and I'm very pleased with the result.  I got the inspiration from a Magnolia Ink Magazine.  The sentiment is by Funstamps and the border is a Martha Stewart punch.  I used the hearts punched out from the border to decorate the top left hand corner.  The red rose I made using Brenda's fantastic tutorial the smaller roses were in my stash which I inked with the Tim Holtz distress inkpad (Tattered Rose). The leaves are die cut .  The background is a Pink Petticoat download - Damask. Ribbon and gems from stash. 

I decided to make a box for the card as it's a bit bulky for an envelope.  I've decorated it with wedding bells cut from the Cricut Wedding cartridge, computer generated names which I then cut and embossed using my nesties.  All the distressing was done with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Victoria Velvet.

Hope you like it!  Bye for now - Linda x


  1. Hi Linda

    What a great card and so nice with a box as well, makes it extra special and a real keepsake.

    Have no idea on the weather forcase, tend not to look as they usually get it wrong. But as you say the break from work is the best bit whatever the weather.

    Sorry I missed your last post, not been so well - yet again. But I heard all the class reports and sounds like everyone had a good time.
