Good morning friends,
I am typing this whilst waiting for my cousin to arrive from Wales for a few days - her husband is bringing her, we are out to lunch and then he is off on a Golf tournament! I am really looking forward to a few days off work and spending time with her - it will be the bus into Bath tomorrow!
So I may be 'missing' for a few days, although if i can snatch a late night half-hour when the rest of the house is asleep, I will try to get a few posts scheduled.
Today's card is similar to one I posted back in June, but I made this one for a lovely couple who are neighbours of ours and got married a few weeks ago. They had the reception and party in a beautiful, traditional marquee on the groom's parents land in the countryside just a few miles from where we live and it was beautiful.
This is an accordion card made by joining two 6x6 blanks together. The greeting on the front was just fixed there for the photo as I added their names. The wedding couple stamp is LOTV (I must get some more of their wedding designs!) and the lanterns are also an LOTV stamp. I cut the aperture using Spellbinders Labels 24 and the remaining flourishes, flowers and butterflies were all made using dies from various Spellbinder sets. I wanted to give it a country wedding feel, so added the bunting and paper roses.
The background papers were all from a pad called 'Petite Papers' that I had free with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine a few month ago; they are all gorgeous, vintage style papers and whilst I have used them quite a lot, they seem to be lasting a long time!
Thank you for stopping by, sorry it's short on the description this morning! Enjoy the rest of your weekends,
