Woohoo!! I’ve Finished!

Saturday, 27 August 2011

Yes, I’ve finally finished all the wedding stuff!  I’ve even now finished the cards I’m giving as gifts.  The cards I made from myself I just made 2 the same and then another one from my parents.

So this is the card I’ve made from myself, I delivered this one last weekend and the other one that’s the same (except I gave the bride black hair to match the actual bride!) I’m delivering tonight, so I’m thinking it’s safe to post this now!


I made a round card this time for a bit of a change from my usual square and yep, you guessed it...


it’s an easel card!
I used my new circle dies from Go Kreate, they’re hum dingers and great for making big shaped cards.  I’ll have to get me some more of these!


I used my favourite bridal couple digi stamp again which is “Happy Couple” from Tiddlyinks.  I coloured them with copics and prismacolour pencils.


The papers are from the “Out of print” paper pad from Basic Grey, I love the colours of the papers and it has text going all through it which seems to be the in thing at the moment!
I added some black webbed lacy ribbon under some lovely green satin ribbon which I let go off the edges of the cards rather than tucked in under like I normally do.  I used a spellbinder die to cut out the small hearts which I distressed and added some crystals to.  I used the computer to print out the sentiments and a Stampin’ Up! punch to cut out the names.  The mahoosive diamante heart came from my local craft supplier and I think it’s meant to go on a cake cos it had a big stake coming out the bottom which I removed.


I’m entering this card in the following challenges:

Hi Sheena! Sorry I've been MIA for so long.
I've just been having a browse on your blog and your latest cards are oh so gorgeous sweetie! Love, love, love this wedding one especially and that glitzy heart looks superb.
Those dies look fabby, I'd love some of these big ones but keep putting it off 'cos I'm not sure they'd fit in a bug, and I can't afford a new machine.
lol Chrissie xx
