Magnolia Wedding Story Book

This is an order I made for a regular customer who wanted to give his wife a special card/gift on their wedding day. He wanted it to include a story of their relationship on different pages. I decided to make this book for him. I used my Cinch by We R Memory Keepers to bind the book. I am really pleased with how this has turned out and he was too.

Front of Book

I coloured the Magnolia Bride with Copics and matted this onto some Marianne diecuts. I love the effect of these dies. The sentiment was printed on the computer and die cut using a spellbinders labels die. The papers used throughout the book are from the Bearely Mine Extreme CD Collection. I have added some flower details and added glitter to these using some stickles. The ribbon buckle and ribbon finishes the design off.
