autumnal wedding

I think it should be safe to share this card with you. The wedding took place today, so it's OK to show this. I was asked to do an autumnal theme with leaves, so out came the gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp.
I've used Stampin' Up More Mustard cardstock with Bo-Bunny 'Wine Dot' and 'Beau Jardin' patterned paper, gotta love all those swirls.
The text stamp behind the bride and groom is 'french script' by Stampin' Up, discontinued now. The 'two hearts' sentiment and the word 'love' on the carriage are by Hero Arts from a set of clear stamps. Metal wedding bells are by Making Memories, flowers and fern leaves by Prima. I dusted off my Martha Stewart fern punch and another leaf punch that I've had for donkeys years to add a bit of variety. The 'love and cherish' charm is from the USA, don't know the make of these.

And the close-up...

This time the hair colour is brunette, true to the couple IRL. I lost count of how many Copics I used to get the effect of the autumn foliage. I used a combo of Spica clear glitter pen and glamour dust, but as usual, that's very hard to capture on a photo. Just trust me, it's tastefully blingy!
And a decorated inside, using the Hero stamps again.

And the box.

Now I must tell you, it's a good thing this isn't being sent in the post - it would cost a fortune. Why - well, normally I use foam pads for dimension, but I thought I'd use silicone instead. I think I can say I used too much. Honestly, it weighs more than a card ought to, LOL.

The couple had lovely weather for their big day, hope it all went well.
