Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and thank you for dropping by my blog. I love making wedding cards – in fact they are my favourite cards to make and today I am sharing another wedding card.

A Heartfelt Love Wedding Card

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I have a card that has taken some time to make as I was looking for the right embellishments on it.  This is a gatefold card that was inspired by Emma Lou Beechy from Heartfelt Creations when the Heartfelt Love collection was released last November.  I have embellished the card with Arianna Blooms and Wildwood Floral flowers and the leaves are from the Classic Leaf stamp and die set.  I have used iCraft flower making cardstock which is amazing to use for creating flowers and even making leaves.  I love the Ranger Archival inks and have used them to colour all the embellishments here.

I hope you have enjoyed this card.  Watch out for another beautiful Butterfly Dreams card on Wednesday.

Happy Crafting

More digital shabby chic

Hi there

I have been further developing my theme of digital shabby chic and using my wedding photos in a layout using shabby chic embellishments from a range of sources.  I have also used black and white photos to good effect (I think) in the second layout.

Two things I love about digital scrapbooking or art is 1) there is no mess and 2) there is an undo and redo button and you can change to your heart’s content.  I do have to watch that I stop before too much is definitely too much though.

These layouts would look lovely on the new photo panels or in the Everyday Display from Creative Memories.

As usual I will put the instructions on how I have made these layouts on my Digital Creations page.  I try to remember what I have done, but if you are unsure of any steps please feel free to contact me.

Wedding card

I have got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and decided to try my hand at doing a wedding card, using a different range of techniques.

I have embossed a cream metallic paper with a cuttlebug embossing folder.

Then on some scrap paper I have drawn a template for a dress and used that to cut out the shape from the embossed paper.

With my Creative Memories Blossom place’n’punch I have punch out a flower from some cream metallic paper.  I creased all the edges and then cut one crease to the middle.  I have pleated up the flower and then glued to flower onto the waist of the dress.

I have made the small flowers out of using my Border Maker system twinkle chain cartridge.  I have glued them with my CM glue pen onto the bodice.  I then put some pearls onto the middle of the flowers and also the middle of the larger flower.

I then cut a piece of Divine dark brown paper to back onto my cardstock.

I cut an oval out of cream Divine paper and laid it over the top of the brown paper.  I also trimmed the cream paper to make the brown paper mat the cream paper. I just eyeballed how much I trimmed it.

I then stamped a Congratulations from Stamp’n’Up on a piece of scrap cream paper.  This was then matted in onto the brown paper and then placed it on the bottom front of the card.Cheers for now.  Patricia
