Wedding Card

***

This will be winging it's way to Tasmania. The lady who commissioned this is not going to the wedding but will be visiting the happy couple next year, so I made a stronger box for it which I hope will survive the journey

Allsorts challenge #68 - new beginnings
Daring Cardmakers - Sapphires for September
Paperplay #35 - In stitches
Papertake Weekly - Just the one (colour blue)



Some stitching and distressing and a peeloff border around the heart


The box.....
This is an 8 inch square card and fortunately I have some A3 cardstock. It took quite a while to make a template for the box  to fit the card. The biggest problem was that it was too big to fit my guillotine and score board. Got there in the end though
I kept the embellishing simple as it is going in a jiffy bag although the silver panel is raised with foam pads


Papers - Bearly Mine and Nearly White, by Loreta Labarca
Flowers & pins - Wild Orchid
Ribbon - My Wedding Party
Sissix swirl -  glamour dusted
Handcut heart
Lace and gems

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind and greatly appreciated comments :-)
