Another Wedding Card

At last I can share my second Wedding card....my friend Michelle and her partner Sean recently got married. Because of my illness I was unable to deliver it to them when I wanted but I got there today, so I am now able to share with you all, the card I made for them both. Now anyone who knows me, knows this is not my style of card making at all and I was right out of my comfort zone LOL. I find it very difficult to the do the vintage style of crafting. The photograph doesn't really show off all the inked edges very well which is a shame.

The stamp set is Baroque Motifs and was stamped onto Pale Plum card using Versamark ink. Pale Plum ink was sponged around the edges of the card before layering onto Whisper White card then Perfect Plum base card. I then broke open the Pretties Kit !! Now I love these embellishments and they only get used on very special cards. I know, it's stupid, but I bet there are a few people like me LOL. I used the largest flower from the kit and then used another stamp from the Baroque Motifs stamped in Perfect Plum for the centre of the flower. Embellished with the beautiful pearls from the kit and stamped the MR & MRS from the Basic Phrases set. I also stamped the inside of the card to make it extra special.

I just want to finish this post with wishing Michelle and Sean many many years of happiness together.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Carole! What do you mean you can't do this style of card?!! This is amazing - so beautiful! I love the way you've layered the flower.

I totally agree with you about the pretties kit - too good to use, even if they do make more lol! I hope you feel 100% very soon and that you and your family have a lovely Christmas, love Kate xx
