Two Become One - wedding shadow box


Weddings have been delayed for so many this year but that means when they do take place they are that extra bit special. For this post I am sharing with you a 3D project that doubles as a card and a keepsake.

The base of my piece is formed from a chipboard shadow box  which has opening windows shutters. I constructed the box leaving off the windows using Magic glue and then cut pieces of paper from the Love Me Forever paper collection to fit all of the surfaces.

I then adhered paper to one side of the window pieces and left it to dry before cutting out all of the apertures. I then repeated this on the other side before adhering some lace from my stash to the inside edges thereby creating faux curtains. 

I created my diorama by adding some tags cut from the paper pack on to the back of the box using scrap cardboard to lift them off the surface. On top of these I adhered a really intricate floral chipboard wreath cutting it into two pieces so that a little peaks out from the left side of the groom and then some cheesecloth.

My bride and groom were cut from one of the 12 x 12 papers and shaped using my hands before being adhered in place. I added more pieces of lace around the edge of the crinoline skirt - tucking in small pieces for added texture and to bring an even more feminine feel to my piece.

I chose a mixture of two flowers to adorn my box - Mooonlight flowers by Little Birdie and small fabric flowers.

I added some dimensional pearl drops to the centers of the flowers on the chipboard wreath and around the frame and a scattering of pale iridescent sequins to the brides dress

I attached the windows to the front of the box using metal hinges before adding my chipboard sentiment "Two becomes one".
