I hope you are having a good week so far. Unfortunately I have started my first cold of the School Year. It will probably be the first of many. I don't feel too bad and most important of all I can still craft.
The card I am sharing with you today was made for the couple that I made some wedding invitations for earlier this year. They are getting married in Scotland so there is a strong Scottish theme to the card.
I made an 8" x 8" card blank from a sheet of A3 pearlised white card. As I do with most of my cards I made the insert first. This means once the card is finished it is completely finished I don't like going back to do the inserts once I am done.
All the mats and layers are the same colours as were used in the invitations. I cut a lattice with my ScanNcut and I found a tartan paper in my Christmas stash.
Here is the style of invitation I made for the happy couple.
The thistles were cut with a Tattered lace die. I cut it one in green and then the tips in blue and stuck them to the green.
The center section was cut with a whole selection of Sue Wilson dies. The outer detail was cut with the Innsbruck die from the Austrian collection. For the center I used a mixture of dies from Expression Dies Ornate ovals Special Day and Just for you sets. I also used a mix of colours from the invitations.
I will posting this card tomorrow I would like them to get it before the wedding.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the week.
