A Wedding Card for a Special Couple

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week. So far the weather here hasn't been too good here but that does mean craft time for me. I can't believe that it is nearly the end of the school holiday. The time really has whizzed by.

I was asked by our Vicar to make a card for the girl who used to play drums in our music group as she is getting  married in a few weeks. She was a very big part of our church life and lots of people remember her fondly.


This is an A4 card so it can be signed by everyone. To create the background I found some pretty paper in my stash with words and birds on it. I cut two lattices with a cutting file on my ScanNcut I cut one edge off both so they could be joined together to cover the paper. I cut three of the Sue Wilson Ivy Border die and put these at the edge of the card one was cut in half so the whole side was covered. 


I used my Tattered Florals Bigz die to make the flowers with the addition of the Spellbinders die for the centers and a flat backed pearl to finish them off. All the flowers were shaped with a ball tool on a spongy mat. The flowers all started white but I inked them before I shaped them.  


The hearts were made with a Sue Wilson die I made a mat by drawing round the die. The White centers were embossed with the Bed of  Roses embossing folder. The letters were cut with my Tonic dies they were cut once in blue and once in white. Now I have a spare set in reverse.  I might use them on the envelope. 


I have left the inside quite plain with a lot of space for signing. I hope the flowers will keep their shape. I do hope you all enjoy the rest of the week. 

I would like to enter this for Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 191. All the flowers were made with snippets. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
