A perfect pair

I was asked by a colleague to make a wedding card for a couple who were very outdoorsy and who bought each other walking boots for Christmas so I thought I'd have a little fun with the idea and created a card around the boots! 

I used Photoshop to create the image and printed it out in black and white adding some subtle colour with Promarkers before adding Glossy accents to “his” and Stickles to “hers”. The card was completed with some K&Co backing paper, flowers from Wild Orchid, a chipboard heart covered with more K&Co paper, computer generated text and a little die cut tag - the wording ‘a perfect pair’ suggested by my youngest son Evan :o)
