Easter Bliss

Mr & Mrs

The wedding of my middle daughter, Elisha, is tomorrow, Friday. It seems to have come around so quickly and the past few weeks have just vanished in a blur. Apart from a wedding card, which I shall show you next week, I decided to try my hand at a 3D project for the happy couple.
I bought the letters and then had to think on how to display them. I decided to decorate them and mount them on a board to make a wall hanging.


The board has been painted with gold acrylic paint. I then used a sheet of textured white card and a white velum embossed with silver leaves. I trimmed it with a scallop punch and brushed the edges with gold paint. I finished with four metal corners.


I started by painting the letters with acrylics in various pastel shades. I then covered the fronts with papers from Graphic 45. To finish the letters I messily painted gold around the edges.


Each letter has a metal charm attached to a gold painted flower.


All the images are fussy cut from Graphic 45 papers and strengthened with Modge Podge. The tiny ring is from an earring.


It's long been a tradition to give the bride a wooden spoon to help with her culinary skills but Elisha is a good cook so this is just a token spoon. On the S is a mini book which contains the date of the wedding.


I presented the board to the happy couple last weekend and they will display it at the wedding to go with their vintage d├ęcor.
Now I'm off to get my nails and hair done ready for the big day tomorrow. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
