Wedding Card

Hello again my crafting friends, bet you are thinking 'blimey don't see her for ages then two almost together' lol! A bit like buses I hear you say ha! ha! 

Well I did say I had been doing some cards for work colleagues this past week as two are getting married, one turned 50 and the other is having a baby! There are so many staff leaving that I have not done any leaving cards this year!

This is one of the wedding cards, I wanted it a bit different to the norm! 

I inked and distressed the bottom layer which I wrapped some vintage lace ribbon round the bottom. I added a rectangle panel then two ribbon panels on the left and placed the Sizzix Thinlits Royal Paradise die on top, I coloured this with Peacock Blue DI. On the right I added a Spellbinders Nestabilities Splendid Circles die but I cut the outer ring away, on top of this was two hearts cut out of a beautiful patterned paper with Sara Davies Signiture Collection Love & Romance Elongated Heart dies, I added their initials on top of these along with several flourish die cuts around the edge. I placed a Sara Davies Signature Collection Together Forever Wings of Love Bird die in the top right. I made two little rolls of paper and stuck then under either side of the circle top and bottom for support.

To finish it off I added Paper flowers around the circle and in the two diagonal corners of the rectangle panel. I also added two hat pins behind the larger flowers as you can see in this smaller image.

The papers I used were from a 12"X 12" paper pad from The Range, sadly I cannot remember what it was called but they are all neutral colours with beautiful subtle patterns on them.

Thank you for looking, I hope you visit me again, Jacquie xxx

  7. Hi Jacquie
    Very shabby chic and the lace is divine. I thought it was a die cut at first glance.
