A Card For A Special Day

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all having a good weekend.
This is a card a friend has asked me to make for her, for a special couple of friends, who are getting married next month. The brief was burgundy and cream in colour and flowers and embellishments.
I have just noticed that the antennae of the bottom Dragonfly were caught together when I took this picture. I have untangled them now! I was trying to take the pictures with my grand-daughter here!
The Kay Carley Dragonflies and the rings were stamped with Versamark and embossed in gold. As were the details on the internal part of the card in the picture below. The small flowers I made, using a Woodware punch. Sprayed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and added some H20's.

The rose in the picture below is from an unmounted sheet of stamps from the Stamp Man. I coloured it with H2o's. As I also did with the Dragonflies.

The leaf is from a Little Claire die, Large Fern Leaf . I edged it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added a touch of Star Dust Stickles. The paper roses are from my stash, just added some H2o's and Stickles to the ends of the petals.

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the corners and Nestabilites die for the hearts. I just have to do the wording my friend has asked for, to go on the insert. I have also made a box that I finished today. I will take photos and hopefully post tomorrow.

I hope she will like it.


Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to reading your comments, as they always make me smile.

Luv,
