A few weeks back a friend commissioned me to make a special card for a work colleagues Wedding that she was attending at the weekend.
I was asked to make some 3D Flowers and something that had the WOW factor. Clearly everyone’s WOW is different and I felt the pressure was on to produce something special. Well I hope I achieved that for her.
I’d seen some deep, highly embellished envelopes on Pinterest, a while ago that I’d remembered and thought I’d try to recreate.
The little chalk board speech bubble on the belly band, says “Mr & Mrs” and the flowers made with the Spiral Flower Die.
I was surprised how few Stamp Sets I owned to create a Wedding Card, so I turned to Punches and embossing folders instead. Sadly the Embossing folders used have both been retired.
I decided to continue the Chalk Board theme through onto the card itself and create a card around two love birds.
The envelope was highly embellished to make the card appear more of a gift, since there was going to be a voucher/money included. It’s also a suitable size, that the wedded couple could store their Marriage Certificate in there afterwards if they so wished.
A one off card and something a little different for me, but most enjoyable.
I’m pleased that the weather stayed dry for them.
