Wedding Bells Bridal Card...

My goodness, it certainly feels like I have not had anything to share here in awhile!
It's another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, and last week the Classic Wedding Collection was released!  It is such a beautiful and romantic collection with such soft colors!
Here's a little about the collection...

Church bells ring out and there’s an excitement in the air!  Loved ones have gathered together to celebrate two hearts joined in friendship being united in love!  Beautiful roses provide a classic and romantic d├ęcor while soft music lends to the ambiance as the bride and groom beam seeing one another for the first time on their wedding day!  Preserve those special “Happily Ever After” memories with the new Classic Wedding Collection by Heartfelt Creations.  Filled with romantic imagery of stately church bells, classic roses and fanciful doves, this softly hued paper collection is sure to add to the nostalgia and romance of these precious moments while showcasing memories of such a special day.  Soft peaches, pinks, greens and blue tones lend a timeless and elegant backdrop to graceful swirls, lace like elements and romantic script!  Commemorate the special occasion with dreamily illustrated cling stamp sets depicting glorious heart shaped rose wreaths, elegant church bells, beautiful wedding rings and a delicate image of a bride and groom, complete with coordinating dies perfect for embellishing bridal shower, wedding or anniversary creations!  Five marvelous sentiments are included to ensure you have the perfect well wishes to complete your bridal or anniversary card or scrapbook layout!  Add a touch of splendor and sophistication with either of the two intricate and impressive lace like dies included in this sentimental collection!  So, please rise…and join with us in celebrating those special moments that represent “Always and Forever”!

For my project this week I decided to create a special card front using one of the dies found in the Decorative Medallion Die set.  I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous wedding bells illustration and found a premade card panel in the Classic Wedding Paper Collection that would work with what I had in mind perfectly! 

Here's how it all came together...

Now, my daughter and I had a good chuckle about this card...and we'll get to that in just a moment!
But first, I want to show you what the card looks like when it's open!

Doesn't that gorgeous preprinted 6"x6" card panel just bring everything together when you open it and see the full wedding bell and rose illustration?

Now...onto the humorous side of this card!
When Emma Lou previewed the Classic Wedding Collection video and how to make a fancy fold card using these exact die cuts, my daughter and I chuckled because the base was pretty much the exact same base I had just created several days before.  I can't tell you how happy I was though when I saw that Emma Lou hadn't used the bride and groom or the wedding bells!  LOL

I've used the Classic Rose stamp and die combination to create my flowers.  I've added the frosting powder and heat set it using my heat tool.  All of the coloring has been done with Spectrum Noir Blendable pencils and gamasol solution.  I wanted the card to be super soft and romantic.  
Just as Emma Lou did on her card, I've sponged glitter all over the die cuts on the card base, as well as the preprinted images on the inside of the card and them sprinkled it all with a transparent glitter.  If you look super closely at the first picture, you'll see that find just doesn't show up on the photos very well. 

This wedding collection is so soft and beautiful and perfect for creating all those wedding cards, presentation envelopes, gift bags, etc. that you need during the summer wedding season! 
Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog to catch up on all of the other gorgeous projects the rest of the design team have created using this alluring collection!

Until next time...
