…I understand only because I love



I was commissioned to make a wedding card and chose to use the lovely Wedding Bells image from Tiddly Inks on it.


As the gift to accompany the card is money I created this card with a drawer using one of the fab Silhouette patterns from Nicole’s Stamp Addiction.  To make this just that little bit more special I didn’t cut the circle for a finger pull on the drawer but instead used an eyelet and Swarovski crystal as a handle.

I echoed the outside on the inside using the same die cut, Oval Frames from Wild Rose Studio, and stamp, Elegant Roses by Magnolia.  To reduce the bulk on the inside I die cut a piece of paper instead of using real lace but probably should have also skipped the pearl trim.  The lovely sentiment is from the Just a Note set by Stempelglede, which I’ve stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder.


Over at Southern Girls they want to see some sparkle on your projects.  Apart from my sparkly crystal I’ve used Twinkling H2Os on watercoloured image, added a sparkly gem for the ring on the bride’s finger and also made my roses sparkly.  I used Jennifer McGuire’s technique of randomly inking my roses and leaves, which were embossed with white embossing powder, with an ink blending tool then spritzing with Perfect Pearls Mist.  I then cut each individually and layered onto the card front.  I used the same technique inside but with less foam tape for less bulk.

Paper Craft Crew have a fun Tic Tac Toe board and I’ve used the bottom row on my card.  I’ve made a wedding card with flowers and ribbon.

As my card features both an image from Tiddly Inks and flowers I am also entering it in the current challenge on their blog.
