Wedding/Shower cards

Hello everyone.  Last month I was busy working on Wedding and Wedding shower cards.  I have done this layout many times, and love it.  It's my 'go to' wedding shower card. 

I actually did 3 cards at the same time, just changed papers, or colours etc on each, but generally the same.










Not a lot of explaining on these, the wedding dress is a embossing folder from Coutures.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Stitched frame is from MFT.

Thanks for stopping by today, I love when you do.  Have yourself a fabulous day!

Hope your day is fabulous

Hello! Did you think I fell off the face of the earth? Well, I didn't, just been busy with many things in my life. Have had some health issues with my feet - planters fasciitis - very painful.  I had to get orthotics and gradually break them in over a few weeks. This past weekend, something terrible happened and I could barely walk for 2 days.  My feet were so sore it was unbelievable.  Then I experience over the last month swelling of the ankles everyday.  I would ice them at night put my feet up, take advil, they looked good in the morning the it would happen all over again. I also had a flare up with my RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) this past weekend as well.  When it rains it pours, so they say!   But must say I think I'm on the mend - thank goodness! It's been a rough month.

My card today is one I made over a month ago, but just never posted it.  I'm using Altenew - build a flower Cattleya.



I had already made the background a while ago using Magenta Nuance powders, so this came in handy when I was doing this card.  I stamped the flower onto some Canson watercolour paper using black memento and then water coloured it.  I'm sorry I don't even remember what inks I used to colour this with.

I cut out a couple of stitched circles to layer underneath the Cattleya flower.  I stamped the sentiment onto some white cardstock and then cut it with a banner die.  The sentiment is one of a few that come with the stamp set.

I added foam tape behind the flower for dimension, added some glitter to the centers of the flower and some enamel dots for accents.  I also added a strip of silver paper along the right side.

Thank you for your visit today, I will be back soon.  Have a fabulous day!

On Your Special Day

I'm back today to share another Wedding Card.  Not a lot of explaining on my wedding cards as most are die cuts, flowers and paper.



Background paper is from Prima Marketing - Princess line.  I used this for the rectangle layer on top of the white die cut as well.

Sentiment is from Just Rite stamps- Every After Antique Labels One

Flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts

Die cuts are from Aliexpress.  The top layers is cut from Antique Gold Matte Cardstock

Ribbon is from my ribbon basket.

Added some wink of stella to all the flowers, gold pearls and some glittery rhinestones.

Thank you for stopping by today, have a great day!
