I pulled out one of my few wedding stamps (I think it's Bildmalarna) and my Copic Markers. I knew I wanted to use that beautiful doily die again, so I cut a circle from Xpress Blending Card to fit the center. I stamped my image on the circle and colored it with my Copics.
I made my 6x6 easel card using CTMH cardstock and Authentique papers from my stash. I placed the stopper for my easel near the top of the inside instead of the traditional placement near the bottom so it would stand up almost straight. I made sure to pop up the top strip with foam adhesive to keep it from popping closed. I also added some rhinestone brads for bling.
I raised the doily off the card front using more foam adhesive for added depth and interest. I embellished using Prima Fairytale Roses and Cutters Creek branded flowers. I inked the CC flowers to darken them a bit since they were the same shade as the darker Fairytale Roses, and I wanted to add a little more color variety. The flowers are all adhered using Glossy Accents.
It's hard to see in the pictures, but I added sparkle to the eyelet areas of the wedding dress using a clear Copic Spica pen.
