Wedding Card

It's the time of year when there are a lot of heart, love and Valentine's Day products coming out - I love all the products but I don't tend to give a lot of these types of cards so I decided to make a wedding card. 

I think that one of my favourite new "love" stamps is this Unity Stamp fox stamp - they are too adorable! I stamped them onto some 110# paper and coloured them with red and pink Copics. I am still learning how to colour with Copics so I kept them very basic. I fussy cut them and then coloured the heart in between them with Stickles for some glitter,
The background was a lot of fun to make - I started by spreading some Ranger texture paste through a Tim Holtz stencil and coating it with some Ranger Antiquities Cement embossing powder (I think that this one is going to become a new favourite!). Usually I wait for the past to dry before heating but this time I decided to heat while the paste was still wet. The heat puffed the hearts up and gave them some really amazing dimension that I never saw when I waited for the paste to dry. It is really hard to capture the dimension in the photo but you can a little bit of an idea when you look at the heart near the red fox that I "tested" by pushing it in with my finger!

I stamped the Altenew greeting and added the foxes with some foam tape. I finished off by rounding the top right corner.

I will link this card to a couple of challenges:
