I dont 'do' wedding cards

Well not unless i'm comissioned to make one or in this case have to make one for myself, my cousin is getting married today...just got in from my Aunties house, she only lives a few doors away..it's a hive of activity this morning, with the hairdresser, flowers being delivered...and all round excitement...lovely :) and the sun is shining...hurray !


I cant say that this really shouts wedding card, except for the verse which i sourced from the internet and personalised, but i'm hoping Kelly and Chris will like it.

I used Sizzix die Flowers, Branches and Leaves...i spotted this on a card Cass made a few months ago and loved it. I bought mine from Cuttingedgecrafts, free p&p and super fast delivery. I added a few dewdrops, ribbon and the butterfly is shock horror a peel off ! I'm not a huge fan of peel offs but i think these look nice when mounted onto card and cut out..plus it added a little sparkle to the card.



Right i best get myself organised...lots to do, have a lovely weekend everyone x

  15. Absolutely beautiful card, wonderful flourishes around the verse. (And this is all the better for not conforming to the expected 'wedding card' look.)
