If I haven’t mentioned it before, I’ll say now, that I love anything about weddings! So, when my great niece sent me this photo I knew I wanted to make something special for her. This layout measures 12 x 12 inches and I will place it in a white shadowbox so she can display.
The base is done with an 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 inch piece of Basis WHITE 80lb Card Stock matted with a 12 x 12 inch piece of Silk Glitter Sparkling Water Aqua Discount Card Stock.
FYI – I did cut out the center of the glitter card stock to conserve and have a usable piece for something else.
To add a little bit of pattern and color to the background I inked with a 6 x 6 stencil.
The center of the background does not match up perfectly, but most of it will be covered.
I chose a patterned paper to use behind my focal photo. I tore and inked the edges with gold ink for a little texture. My 4 x 6 inch photo was matted with the Silk Glitter Sparkling Water Aqua Discount Card Stock. MirriSparkle Gold Glitter Card Stock was used to die cut a frame and for a rectangular piece along the right side of the layout.
Stamping, wet embossing and die cutting were done to create the embellishments. A variety of card stocks were used – Silk Glitter Sparkling Water Aqua Discount Card Stock, Silk GLITTER Opulent Opal Card Stock, MirriSparkle Gold Glitter Card Stock, Basis WHITE 80lb Card Stock, Basis OLIVE 80lb Card Stock, Pop Tone BERRYLICIOUS Discount Card Stock, Pop Tone BLUE RASPBERRY Card Stock
Flowers were assembled a seen in the photo on the right.
The flowers were arranged around the focal.
All of the other die cut pieces were added to complete the design.
I loved putting this together and hope I have provided a little inspiration for you today.
