Bride and groom hearts

I’ve only needed to make a handful of wedding cards over the years and so I don’t have many suitable stamps in my stash. I was trying to come up with some ideas — the last of our nieces to get married conveniently had a Harry Potter themed wedding so I had a good starting point — this time I literally had a blank page and no suggestions from anyone.

After being uninspired further browsing Pinterest, I decided to make a more elegant variant of the bride and groom hearts that I made six years ago.

This time I used a die to cut a stencil and created a subtle textured background with white moulding paste which I then spritzed with glimmer mist.

The tuxedo and wedding dress hearts were covered with white and black microfine glitter and then I raided my embellishments stash to find some suitable bits for the shirt buttons and dress neckline. I was so pleased when I found the tear drop which matched perfectly with the sparkle of the glitter and the gold of the buttons.

I would have liked to have been able to make something a little more personalised, but I really like how this turned out.
