Groom & Groom

I was asked to make a wedding card for a groom and groom, and this is what I came up with.
I decided on a top hat stamp as main element, stamped onto a brownish paper with structure and fussy cut. Then I added some die cut hearts (using Memory Box dies) and made a shaker card with heart sequins in silver and red. The frame (made with a Dienamics die) is glitter paper. The background inside the shaker is heat embossed vellum and I used a leftover piece of DP with tartan pattern, mounted onto a piece of burlap paper. I added a stamped greeting and a single flower.
I'm off for a week's holiday in the sun (or so I hope). I'm not going to be much around this week but I've got a couple of DT posts scheduled.

This card is for:
The Male Room - #62 Off the Edge
Come and Get It - Weddings
Allsorts - #419 Use at least 2 dies
Fab 'n' Funky - #354 Marvelous Men

Beautiful! Same sex wedding cards are hard to make because there are still so few of them around but you've really nailed it, with the romance of a wedding card without it being too frilly and feminine

The top hats and tartan make this card masculine whilst the flower and hearts add the romance, a very clever design.
