Forgotten Wedding Card

Sunday, 18 September 2011

I forgot all about this card, I made it for my parents to give to one of the couples who got married a few weeks ago.
There's lots of pictures of this one so best get started with them!


I used this couple couple from LOTV, coloured with copics


The papers are from Basic Grey, hopscotch paper pad.  I punched a strip of butterflies with my Martha Stewart punch and added a few swarovskis for interest.


The flowers are a mixture of flowers from my local craft supplier and Wild Orchid Crafts.  I edged the petals with some clear stardust pen.


And it is, of course, a twisted easel card


 I used my Magnolia Doo Hickey label die to cut out the computer generated sentiments.


And another one on the pocket on the inside for the gift


And a wee metal corner to finish off the bottom bit.


Lastly, I made a box to put it in with a matching big flower.  I attached magnets to the ends of the ribbon to hold the box closed underneath.  I didn't get a photo of the closure though.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
