Wedding Invitation Reliquary

The GSL Arch Top Reliquary is the perfect way to display our wedding invitation. We had a very small get together, just 20 invitees. We were married at home by the mayor of our little town followed by brunch at a french bistro. It was such a small affair, it didn't make sense to have invitations engraved so I was thrilled when I found pretty blank bride cards and hand wrote our invitation inside. She's been in a box for many years, it is wonderful to see her every day now! 
The reliquary is super simple, just two pieces. I chose a piece of blue Graphic 45 fauna paper from their Botanical Tea collection and got out my stash of white flowers.
I gave the base back and overlay pieces a coat of white acrylic paint, including the edges. 
To give the front a bit of shimmer, I added Martha Stewart glitter paint in Sugar Cube.
Using the front as a guide, I cut the paper to fit on top of the base, then cut the bride to fit inside.
Using tacky glue, I adhered the paper onto the base, added the bride and attached the arch frame overlay. I used craft clips to hold everything in place while the glue dried.
She of course needs a big diamond ring so I added a flat back rhinestone to her finger and a few flat back pearls to the buttons of her dress. 
 The final touches include a few more pearls, some white flowers and tiny bows.

Thanks for stopping by!
