White Wedding - Thursday 2nd May

Hello Friends,

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comments...I was relieved that I wasn't the only one who came into blogging not know what I was's been  a very steep learning curve over the last few years and I as I mentioned to someone at our social media surgery on Tuesday, it does get quite 'addictive' and you have to be careful it doesn't get in the way of the reason we're here..because we love to craft! However, where else could you really make so many lovely like-minded friends and share ideas and creations!

Talking of social media, Tuesday was a really good day at work, our expert Paul spent the day giving one to one advice about all types of social networking to local groups and I was doing a lot of tweeting from my desk to provide examples. It was a long and tiring day, but at the end of it, we felt as if we had accomplished a lot.

Today's card is my Design Team  card for this month's new Emergency Crafters Challenge, the theme for which is WEDDINGS, so if you would like to take part, just  hop over for the deets!

This is an 8x8 card, which I started by creating a background using one of Sue Wilson's new embossing folders from Creative Expressions. This is the heart lattice and was one of my purchases at Ally Pally. It really does give a defined, crisp impression and I've used it quite a bit over the past few weeks. 

The circle is from the Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles set and in the centre I stamped this pretty wreath from Stamps by Chloe. It's really hard to see in the photo, but I added little cosmic shimmer pearl drops to finish off. The greeting is also a stamp by Chloe, die cut on Spellbinders Standard Circles Large. Around the edges of the card I added snippets from a die in the Spellbinders Venetian Motifs set and again added pearl drops.
Aside from a DT card, this was also made as a commission, the only alteration being that I typed the names of the couple and die cut on the small circle on the front.

Thanks for stopping by,

Love, Carole X

  3. Hi Carole, that embossing folder is gorgeous! I love the corners especially. The wreath is so pretty and is wonderful for a wedding card - simple and very elegant. So glad your Social Media Surgery went well. I don't think I could ever tweet etc., blogging is about the most I can do! You are so right about it being addictive though... Hugs, Anne x

  4. Hi Carole,
    a wonderful card. I recognised the stamp straight away. It's a very distinctive stamp and a very useful one to have in your craft stash too. keep meaning to buy it myself. I too love your embossing folder.

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
