stans daughtes wedding card

Wedding card made for my mate's Stan & Jan to give to their daughter & her husband too be.

this is another easel card (becoming a fast favorite to make with me) with the base card in a plum colour, the front of the card has a glittered velum with matching purple glitter paper on top.
the 'A' & 'M' (the groom & brides initals) are cut out in purple mirri card with plum card and then deep purple fabric paper on top.
5 punched flowers (doubled up and curled with a embossing tool) finished off with a gem in the middle, on both of the letters.

I used peel offs for the brides dress and the grooms suit, the dress is on glittered velum and the suit on grey card. (the bow tie is white card)

silver swirl peel off around the top and left side.

wedding car is made with purple & plum card from a sizzex die cut with my big shot. (have swapped the boot lid and the back window for contrast. the lights have been filled with liquid pearl. the tin cans are on silver string (the get punched with the same die)

I would like to enter this card into the M.S.E making card comp (easel cards)

The wedding is in early October and I wish the bride and groom many years of happyness.

Kelly's 21st...

well has been a while since Iv blogged.... and Iv been saving this card for a while.. (those on mse have seen it).. this is the card I made for my neice for her 21st birthday, this is the box..

the top of the box is made from purple stock card edged with deep purple ink. (I got the shape from the main card) the purple card is layerd on to white card with matching shaped edge. in the corners of the white card is white punched lace with pink velvet ribbon. in the corner of the purpe card are hand made rose's with leaves. in the middle of the lid is a deep purple scolloped punched circle topped with a white circle topped with a smaller circle that match's the lid, sentiment stamped in the middle 'wishing you a DAy Full of Happiness whishing you'. this is finished off with pink pearl dots.
The card is a easel fold card topped with a magnolia stamped image, this has been coloured with pro-markers. this has been cut on my big shot with a scolloped die. this has been topped on to pale pink paper from stock, then on to deep purple card. the topper has been placed in the top middle of the easel, the backing paper is floral embossed paper from the hobby craft store (I realy should try and remember to write down the makers of these things...)
also on the front of the card is more hand made flowers in pink & purple with ribbon leaves. these have been attached with gel glue. (if any one wants tips on how to make the flowers feel free to ask..(but I did find out how via google..)) the same sentiment is on the card as on the box lid.
I was realy happy with this card. A truely stunning card even if I do say so myself.. (why not ring my own bell eh)
My neice was very happy when she received the card (happy 21st Kelly).
