Cardmaking for someone really special . . .
Firstly, apologies! I was going to share this card with you on the weekend, however by the time I got through all the preparations for the wedding, then attended the pre-wedding dinner, and the wedding itself, AND the post wedding breakfast . . . I kind of lost time to do any blogging over the weekend!
Now, since everyone loves a happy occasion, and everyone loves a radiant bride, I guess I better start with that! Here is the totally gorgeous bride, with her handsome new husband, the father-of-the-bride and the step-mother-of-the-bride (that would be me!).
The wedding of such a beautiful couple brought with it the challenge of a really unforgettable, special card and with a little inspiration (particularly for the bouquet and lace edge) from this Pin by Cecile Ortiz this is what I came up with . . .
I've used the beautiful Designer Series Paper - Something Borrowed, along with the Your Perfect Day and Butterfly Basics Stamp sets, all from our Occasions Mini Catalogue. The Blushing Bride Rosette Trim is from the Artisan Embellishment Kit also from the Occasions Catalogue.
The leaves of the fern stamp are all fussy cut - yes, that took me a very long time!
Because the card was so dimensional, I then had to find a way of keeping it safe without squashing it or tearing off any of the ferns, so the next thing was to make a cute little window sheet box to store it in.
The box is 1.5cm deep and rather than cut more ferns, I decided the leaves from the Two-Step Bird Builder Punch might be sturdier.
You can still get all of these products in our current Annual and Occasions Catalogues through until June.
If you'd like a copy of either, please let me know.
I'll be back in a day or two with the super cute thank you cards I made for the bridesmaids.
See you then,
