Tale as old as time

I’m sharing a rather unconventional wedding card featuring two gorgeous images from Kraftin’ Kimmie, Beauty and The Beast.

A crafty friend is getting married this month and she isn’t your typical white meringue bride so I wanted to make a card that reflected her style and this is what I came up with.  I’ve followed the sketch over at Live and Love Crafts, although I swapped out the round element for my flower spray and butterfly and my image was a wee bit large.  That’s the limitation of real stamps, you can’t resize them at will but sadly Kraftin’ Kimmie doesn’t do digis.

As this is for a wedding I’ve gone a bit vintage and shabby chic with some distressing and using lace for the rectangular element.  I decided to add butterflies as the current theme at We Love Vintage is butterflies.  With my wedding theme I am also entering my card in the current challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday.

In keeping with my usual style with Annie Rodrigue images I’ve coloured these up using the no lines technique.  Luckily this helped to hide the bit dodgy masking I did to join the two images.  The lovely sentiment comes with the Beauty image and finished off the card nicely.
