I made a double easel card as a base. I haven't made one before but I thought that this would enable me to devote one half to each of the couple.
I asked what their occupations had been - teacher and fisherman. I decided to visit Silhouette America to see what files would suit . I thought that the lifebelt, the wheel and the anchor would be a great starting point.
The lifebelt dictated the colour scheme.
Rather than cut out elements in different coloured card, I just used white card and coloured using Promarkers.
No stamping here - just die cutting, punching, embossing and computer printing.
Didn't fancy using teacher related elements so went for a floral theme.
If you read previous post, the answer to the question is that the left picture is artificial and the right is the real deal.
