Lobsters and School

Along with other designs, I've been working on a wedding card today. The details given to me were that the Bride is a teacher and the Groom works at a Lobster farm. I have done many a nautical or fish relate card before but never one with a lobster. Not a problem though.A little bit of a challenge but never a problem.

As it was a wedding card and having no given colour scheme to work with, I kept the palette neutral relying on the elements on the card to add texture and height.

The base is kraft card. I then made up the lobster backing paper design myself. I also made the main lobster cut out myself; the same with the pencils which I've personalised with the bride's and groom's names.
For the lower part of the card,  I filled it with magnolia flowers in two different but subtle tones. I added some maidenhair fern to add a slight splash of subtle greenery. Pearl drops were added as an accent. Finally, the greeting banners were placed on the top of the flowers and I tucked three small letters, A, B and C into the mix as a nod to the Bride's vocation.
