Elephants Wedding Wishes

Elephants Wedding Wishes
Made this wedding wishes card for an ex primary schoolmate who is getting married this Saturday.

Viva la Verve Sketches - November Week 1 Sketch

Close-up: Chinese wedding related pattern paper and stripe banner
Pattern paper with 'double happiness' in Chinese character, '喜喜' and Chinese wedding related images is used as the overlay of the background. Then a stripe banner is die cut and attached onto the pattern paper background as in the sketch. A silver ribbon with hearts 'hanging' on the sides are attached onto the earlier two (2) items as shown in the sketch. I did tie a bow as it is hard to tie a bow using this ribbon due to its 'hanging' hearts on the sides. The whole panel is attached onto a red card base using dimensional foam and double sided tape.

Close-up: The female elephant (cow) and male elephant (bull)
The elephants are stamped onto a white card stock and colored using Copic markers. I did not use the elephant natural colors as I like to differentiate the male elephant (bull) and female elephant (cow) literally. Then, they are die cut using the matching dies.

A stitched journal is die cut onto a light pink card stock which will act as the base for the elephants to 'sit' on as shown in the sketch. The sentiment is stamped on center top of the journal card and embossed in gold.
Close-up: Sentiment embossed in gold
The elephants are arrange accordingly below the sentiment and attached onto the journal card using dimensional foam tape. Some hearts flying out above the elephants are stamped onto the journal card to represent that these elephants are in love or is a pair of couple. Finally, the journal card is attach onto the card base as shown in the sketch.

Dimension : 12.7cm x 19cm or 5" x 7.5"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None
