Several months ago I made one of these 3-D collages for my mother-in-law to give as a wedding gift....So, since wedding bells are ringing in our family, I just had to make one to give to my son and daughter-in-law as one of their wedding gifts.

I typed up the marriage poem (auther is unknown) onto pretty ivory scrapbook paper, matted it then mounted it onto the black and white designed scrapbook paper. I created 'Love', and 'Forever' tags, matted, then embellished them with rhinestones. I attached both tags with pop dots.
I put together several layers of petals to create a flower and embellished with rinestones then stamped swirls onto the border of the poem. I just love the way it turned out!
I cut out an oval from distressed black scrapbook paper, matted it twice, decorated two woodsie hearts and one wooden cross and hung them from the 'Love' tag with silver cording and glueing in place.
The message of this collage is my hope and prayer for my son Keith and his new wife Tara.
