Wedding card & box



Well yet another wet Wednesday, hope you've had better weather where you are. Despite the weather we've had a really lovely day. My friend Leigh came over with her two lads, Connor and Callum, I've not seen them for a couple of weeks and it was great to spend some time together, while the kids played Leigh and I chatted non stop, we had dinner together and they went home around 9.30pm .
This card has been made for a lovely lady Jean, who usually buys my cards from the florist but just recently has started to ring me direct. So far I've made her four wedding cards/boxes and a new grandmother card/box. I gave them all to her without taking any pics, so this time I remembered to take a photo beforehand.


For this card I've used, Bazzil bling cardstock 'string of pearls', Papermania wedding words paper. I did make a paper bow just like the one in the post below, but didn't quite turn out as good, due to the paper being thicker. I tried to do the same using ribbon and that didn't turn out as planned but I thought it looked ok..ish. The stamped images have been heat embossed. The satin ribbon is from my local textile outlet. The stamps are a mix of Woodware, Anitas and Stampendous which I bought from from Handy Hippo and Stamps.co.uk I am now looking forward to making some cards for fun and catching up with some challenges that I've not done lately. Thanks for popping by, take care, have fun and happy blogging xx vicki xx
