Evening everyone, my goodness it's so warm here, I get in from work and I literally just flake out. I have a lot of crafting I need to get done, but it's so hard to find the motivation in this heat and humidity.
Even so I managed to finish a (very rare for me to take on) commission for a wedding card.
I used Lili of the Valley's 'I Do', such a sweet image and perfect for my kind of vintage style card.
I coloured it with Distress Inks and finished off with some Glamour Dust and liquid pearls.
Papers are Pion Design, From the Heart II. I used the new La-La Land Crafts Lattice Doily Border behind the image LOVE this die so much. You'll be able to get it at Dies to Die for soon. I popped a couple of the La-La Land Heart Doily die cuts at the top of my card. All my papers and die cuts are edged with Tea Dye Distress Ink, and papers have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and as always I have hand sewn them with Top Stitch thread.
I added some flowers cut with a Magnolia Die, I can't remember the name of this one at the moment, I've had it ages, and popped some flat back pearls from The Ribbon Girl in the centres. The lace which I've almost hidden is also from The Ribbon Girl.
I stamped a sentiment from Impression Obsession's Life Stuff sentiment set on the centre piece from the Heart Doily and added some more flat back pearls.
The beautiful ribbon is Fluted Edge Sheer in Vintage Ivory from The Ribbon Girls and the gorgeous embellishment in the centre of the bow is from The Handcrafted Card Company.
I decorated the inside fairly simply with a sheet from the same collection, this has plenty of space to write a personal message to the special couple. The shape of the card is made with a Martha Stewart PAtP punch set.
I was so happy with the way this came out that I decorated the box I made for it too!
I do hope you like it and I hope the recipients enjoy it, that's all from me folks. Don't forget I have candy on my blog that's up for grabs. Thank you all so much for visiting and leaving such lovely comments lately, I have been a bit remiss about leaving comments recently as I've been snowed under with stuff to complete, but I will try and find some time to leave some love soon.
Take care! : ) x x
