Mr And Mrs Scrabble Wedding Card

This card measures approx. 18cms x 13cms and is made using a hand cut ivory linen effect card (Papermill Direct)

Is could just be me, but are the cleanest, simplest cards often the ones that are the most time consuming and fiddly to actually put together?
The card was for my nephew’s and my new niece-in-law’s wedding, I didn’t want to do fluffy hearts and flowers and all that gushy stuff as that’s just not their style so I plumped for using some of the small, adhesive, cork scrabble letters I have had forever.

I layered the centre panel on gold mirror card and then started to fiddle fart with the letters, oh my life, the spacing was a nightmare.  I was going to put the “and” in scrabble letters too, but whichever way I put them looked pants, so I then went hunting for an “&” amongst my various adhesive alphabet sets, and fortunately found one …….. perfect! 
As the card was very plain I thought I could get away with a few tiny gold coloured flat backed gems on the original spots on the “&”, that was all the glitz was really needed.
I am pretty chuffed with the end result, but boy did this card make me sweat!
