Some more wedding cards

Hey all, its a miserable day here today looks like winter is definitely on its way, good news for us crafter's, we can stay inside snuggled up creating away without feeling guilty :) Today I would like to share with you two wedding cards I made this week. Both cards were for the same couple and both cards were made using the glitter girls embossing boards but as you can see they are completely different.
Two Hearts

   The Two hearts card, 6x6 square, is made from Open Hearts and Tall Stories board, I embossed and cut two hearts of different sizes from the board, then using an orange Artiste ink pad I inked two different embossing folders and after placing a heart in each folder I ran them through my big shot I then gave each one a blast with the heat gun to ensure the ink was set. Both hearts were then edged with peach lace secured with hot glue. I matted and layered 2 layers of card and paper, each sheet 1/2cm smaller than the one before the hearts are adhered using foam pads and I made a pocket using the same paper and card and edged with lace to hide the join. The butterfly and corner decal are both stamped with the same ink as before, heat embossed with holographic embossing powder, die cut and finished with gems.

Lovely Lace
For The Lovely Lace card, I wanted to try something I rarely do, monochrome,this one is made from the Celebration Board, the base of the card is cut to 24x19cm and scored in half, this ensures the first layer from the board fits nicely with an even boarder around it. I embossed the full shape on the board 4 times and each time I cut off another layer, if you cut carefully you can use the left overs on another project so as not to waste, the large oval layer was edged with ruffled lace, as before, and each layer was then added to the card alternating between using double sided, and foam tape. The sentiment was printed from my laptop and cut with an oval shape cutter, I then heat embossed this with a triple layer of clear embossing powder and finished with gems, the corner piece is made from spellbinder dies and flowers and pearls from my stash and the rings are a Marianne die.
Lovely Lace and matching box
Because of the unusual size of the card, and to make it that little bit extra special, I made a matching box from the same card, I decorated it with an element from the same board and the lace and gems I used on the card. Thank you for stopping by today and if you have any questions please just ask, bye for now
