Good morning my Sunshines,
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Mine was was great and very successful. Along with my family, we made a wee shopping trip to a bigger town, which is approximately 100 miles away from the place we live. I was hopping to find a dress for my brother in law wedding.
I knew exactly what I was looking for and I had this dress in-visioned in my mind. All way down I was thinking on it and then the most incredible thing happen to me. I found this perfect dress in exact colour I was thinking of it. Here is more: I not only bought in the first shop we went to, but it was the last one from that kind, so it was priced down on sale!!! How lucky girl I am! I’m so grateful for this amazing dress and for the whole lovely day we spend together…. And of course, the surplus cash from my dress fund I’ve used to buy couple crafty supplies:)
And speaking about the weeding I wanted to share this beautiful easel card along with matching box, I’ve made for my friend, on her sister wedding.
This is one of my favourite designs. I used it for many different occasions. I really love how this striplet die from Creative Expressions is perfectly matching on the bottom of that easel card.
I also like to match different embossing folders, giving my papers different texture. This is a great way to use your plain cardstock, or when you don’t have a lot of designed pattern papers.
I also added a money wallet to the inside top part of the card. To make it I’ve used my envelope tool from We R Memory Keepers.
I’ve dressed the box in the same style as card. These two hearts in the centre are cut outs leftovers from cutting that frame for my card. This way I saved a lot on this beautiful shiny speciality paper.
Usually when I’m making wedding cards I tend to stick to traditional colours white on white look, or adding some gold and silver accents. This time I wanted to make something different, so I add a bit of pink and mint. I love how these two turned out.
