Wedding card for Arsenal supporter

I have had a request for a wedding card for a couple who are having a red colour scheme because the groom supports Arsenal and they wanted an Arsenal badge on it.

I have made an easel card using an 8x8in white card. I have matt and layered both the top and bottom of my card with red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using the Creative Expressions cascading hearts folder. 

For the top of my card I have die cut the valance twice. the bride and groom twice, once in red and once in dark blue and the lattice twice in red and dark blue all with Cheery Lynn dies.  I assembled my card using P.V.A glue. I attached the lattice slightly offsetting them to create a drop shadow. I then attached the red bride and groom and cut the groom off the other die cut and attached it over the red groom.

For the bottom of my card, I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Sizzix scalloped heart die I then mounted it on another heart cut with the next size in the nesting set. I then cut the flourish using a Cheery Lnn die before assembling the elements. I found the Arsenal badge image on the internet and cut it out and added it to some red card before attaching to the card.

I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops
