I have had a few bits to make recently this one is an Engagement card for the lady who is leaving our church to study for a PhD in Oxford. Well she got engaged this summer as well so this time next year she might well be married that's if everything goes according to plan. I would like to make a card for that too.
I made the ribbon flower following a tutorial on Sue Wilson's blog. This is my second attempt my first was too tight and the flower didn't look right. I inked the ribbon before I rolled it up. I did cut two sets of leaves one in purple and one in green. I put the green ones over the purple ones to echo what I had done with the background.
This is the box I made for the card, the flower made it too thick for an envelope. Again I used Sue Wilson dies this time from the French collection there is also a matching stamp. I do have a thing about roses and I am starting to collect lots of crafting bits which have roses on them.
Thank you again for stopping by and for any comments you may leave.
Have a great week.
