Traditional Chinese Wedding Wishes

Traditional Chinese Wedding Wishes - Front
Made this card for my ex-colleague whose wedding is in early June 2012. I got the news a bit late and due to my busy work schedule, only now I have time to make this wedding wishes card for her.

Sketch n Stash Challenge Sketch 4
Sketch n Stash Challenge 90 is having this "Free Choice Sketch" and I have chosen Sketch 4 as shown above for my card layout. The card layout gives me an idea to made a traditional Chinese wedding wishes card which uses my new stamp of Hero Arts CG106 Friends that I bought some time ago.

Close-up : The groom
Both of the images are stamped on white cardstock and colored using Copic markers. The clothes are paper pieced using some Chinese wedding theme pattern paper. The result is excellent as it really looks like tradition days wedding costumes!

Window card
I decided to make a window card as I like the idea of the couple holding the traditional ribbon bow which in Chinese tradition means tying the knots together. I have some hard time making the rose bow but I managed to make it after few tutorials from the Internet. Sentiment "Congratulations" is stamped on a red cardstock and trimmed accordingly to be attached on top of the ribbon rose bow on the gold card base.

Traditional Chinese Wedding Wishes - Inside 
In the inside of the card, the couple is attached accordingly to the acetate window panel. The 'double happiness' in Chinese character, '喜喜' from the pattern paper is trimmed and attached to the center of the inside card. The Chinese character, '喜喜' has made the look of the inside of the card looks tradition together with the couple. It is really awesome!
