Hi everyone, I hope you all had a good week. Mine was good but very busy at work so I'm looking forward a relaxing weekend of crafting lol.
Every so often I take on a commission, usually from a friend. I don't do this as a regular thing because I dislike crafting to order in the main, but sometimes they line up with something I want to try/do and then if I have time I take them on. Recently a friend of mine at work asked me for a Wedding card and a Ruby Anniversary card, no rush. Well I had something in mind and was feeling quite inspired, so I made them both last weekend.
Today I'm sharing the Wedding card with you, and sometime later I'll post the Ruby Wedding one.
It's fairly unusual for me to make a card without an image to colour, but as those who have followed me for a while will know, occasionally I like to dabble in a bit of vintage style with no stamped image. This one today doesn't even have a vintage photo or drawing! But with wedding stamps it can be hard to find something to suit, so a card without an image makes things easier.
I inked all my edges with Walnut Stain distress ink, and sewed my base by hand.
I used some wonderful Pion Papers from the Vintage Wedding collection (I used some 12 x 12 from my stash but the 6 x 6 designs would work equally as well), 3 dies and some gorgeous embellishments from The Ribbon Girl
The sentiment is also cut from the Pion Papers.
I really enjoyed making this card and while I will never abandon my colouring, I think I will make a few more of these types of card. I find them fun to make and they are super quick in comparison to my other cards, and it seems there are always weddings and anniversaries to make cards for!
Have a lovely day :) xx
