Creative Artiste - Wedding Gift

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been? It is nearly the weekend not long to go now. Like on Tuesday this is the first of two posts for me today, again the start of two challenges has coincided.

This post is for the new challenge that starts on the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog. The theme is "Anything Goes" with a twist of using chipboard. The sponsor is Scrapmatts.  I have just come back after having a two month break the team were very understanding when my husband had his accident and things just got a bit too much for me. Things have improved greatly at home and I am in a much better place.

I am sharing a gift I have made for the couple that I have been  making the wedding stationery for.


I wanted to make something like this after we went to their house and discovered that they had fridge Scrabble. I used an 8" x 8" shadow box frame.  The background was made to match the wedding invitations. I used my Gelli plate to mix and print three shades of Distress ink. Once it was dry I used a mask to ink through with silver to make the netting pattern.  


I bought two lots of letter tiles so that we had lots to play with. We had fun planning out the words my husband helped me. You could make something like this for any occasion just by changing the words and the colours. 


This shows the detail of the background a bit more clearly. 


The wedding is on Easter Saturday. I still have a few things to make. We are having one last meeting to go over what I need to do. 

I hope you have a great weekend. We are off to Reading for one night. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  2. Hi Jackie
    What a great idea and perfect for the young couple. What a great gift - they won't have two of this and it's so personal to them and a great reminder of their wedding theme.
    Enjoy your weekend
