Wedding Season Coming Soon . . .

Good Day my Friends!
It's time once again to share a card creation for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.
Have you popped over to take a peek yet?  Oh please do ...
My team mates are creating such beautiful cards using various dies 
from the Dies R Us Store every day of the week to help inspire you!
Please pop over and show them some love!

What fun it was to create this Wedding Scene!

First, let me give you the list of dies I used ...

Frantic Stamper 'Wedding Day' #FRA-9121
Memory Box 'Party Music' #98757
Poppystamps 'Grand Gothic Iron Work' #850
Cheery Lynn Designs 'Victorian Picket Fence' #B123

The walls of the 'church' were created by embossing the upper portion of a white panel using the Sizzix Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder and sponged over top with Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink.
The  [ 'Party Music' ] music notes (there's always beautiful music at a wedding) were die cut from black card stock and popped up with pop dots.

To create the 'stained glass' panel, I simply scribbled various pastel colors with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers onto white vellum.  Die cut my 'Grand Gothic Iron Work' using thin gold metallic card stock and glued the reverse side of the vellum to the back side of my gold die cut.
 After the glue dries, simply cut away the excess vellum with either your scissors or craft knife.

For the fencing, I simply die cut my 'Victorian Picket Fence'  with white card stock.
BUT ... I did cut the lower portion off because it was a bit too high for the scene I was trying to create.  And, I also cut a small section out of the center, as an opening so they could walk into the church!

There are SO MANY things you could do with this fabulous 'Wedding Day' couple. 
I die cut the entire die with white card stock first,
then die cut the groom again in black card stock,
and the bride in ivory card stock and paper pieced over the white panels.
A little coloring was done for the hair, face, headpiece, dress accents with alcohol markers.

Tip:  You could add lace, tulle, pearls ... so many things for the brides dress.
And you could make the grooms tuxedo any color you want. 
If you know the wedding coloring you can coordinate your card to match the bridal party!
