Mocked Up Wedding Card Design for Richard & Becky!

Firstly to all of you that are within the UK, I hope that you are all having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend whatever you may be up to!

So far we have had a bit of a wet one, but it seems to have brightened up somewhat this afternoon and hopefully it will stay that way! Not that it makes a huge amount of difference to me, since I worked yesterday and am doing so tomorrow. But on the plus side I get double pay, and have had the day today to chill with the hubby.

I have also been able to mock the wedding card design that I showed you in my last post into a finished card.

 
I had to fiddle about with the layout of this design to get it right, so that I could fit on all of the information needed but also keep the design in line with the other cards I have done. I got there in the end though!

For the colouring of the text I went with turquoise to match the couple's wedding theme. I also used glitter on the dress and the flower headdress, but unfortunately no matter how I tried I couldn't really get it to show up in the photos.

The last issue that I had with the design was trying to find a button that matched the card. I knew that I wanted a heart and originally I was going to go for a pearl heart button, but try as I might despite the wonders of the internet I couldn't find one that was quite right. They either didn't match or would be to overpowering for the design.

I then looked at a number of different options including wooden heart buttons, but in the end I decided to experiment and paint a red heart button that I already had. I painted it white then sprinkled on embossing glitter, before heating it with an embossing dryer to seal the glitter to the button, and ta dah my little experiment worked! 

I have to say that this design is definitely my favourite of the wedding designs that I have done so far, and I hope that the couple in question like it too. It's not long until their wedding now so it's all getting very exciting, and next weekend I am off on the hen night. We are going out for a meal on the Saturday night then out for a spa day on Sunday, which I am very much looking forward to as I have never done a spa day before. It shall definitely be needed by the weekend too, as I would just have worked the last and our most manic week at my retail job before the schools go back!

Thanks for dropping by as always x

Finished Wedding Card Design for Richard & Becky!

Once again it has been pretty hectic here over the last few weeks, mainly in the work department. This time of year is our busiest since the schools are off, so I have been putting in extra hours and getting to work earlier plus leaving later in order to get everything done! Hence why I have not had whole lot of time to do much else. I have however just had the last two day off, which were much needed.

I had a nice chilled day yesterday having catch up coffee, and shopping with my mum. This left me with today to get on and finish the wedding design that I showed you in my last post.

The design hasn't changed much since the initial sketch; I have just given it the odd tweak here and there.


The main challenges with this design were trying to get the white dress and veil to show up enough against the white background, and trying to keep the characters looking consistent in each image. This is something that I have been struggling with for a while now, which I am getting better at but I think that it is something that is going to come with practise.

For the image itself I decided to go with a country wedding type theme, as this is what the couple in question are having, and I have also used their turquoise colour scheme. Overall I am quite pleased with the outcome, and I now I just need to mock it up into a card. Which hopefully I shall be able to do sometime over the weekend.

I hope that you are all having a good week! Do enjoy your weekend whatever you may be up to and thank you for visiting. x
