A busy few days

Have been busy over the last few days working on a wedding card for a friend who is getting married later on this month.

As I loved doing the Rennie Macintosh Rose birthday card using the new set of designs from Stitching Cards the other day decided to do a different rose for the wedding card. Used the same tartan backing paper but changed the brown cardstock for pink. The sentiment is the first line of the wedding vow 'To Have and To Hold' and which is printed in full on the insert.

Carrying on with the wedding theme.

Next month Billy and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and to mark the occasion decided just a few friends round to the house to celebrate. The invitation list keeps growing, but think it has hit the limit. This morning got the last 6 of the 70 invitations done. Instead of doing a card, decided to do an invitation wallet with the invitation itself as a pull out. For the front of the wallet used the 'Bug' and the stylized flower embossing folder. Then chalked the flowers and put in a gemstone in the centre of the flowers.
Moving away from the weddings and anniversary and with Christmas rapidly approaching decided I better make a start. Usually make a batch of 8 or 12 of each style of card I do. This one is a batch 12. The backing paper is one of the free christmas backing sheet from Printable Heaven. The gift box is made from a sheet of BoBunny's Holiday Magic Ornament double sided paper tied up the box with ribbon and 'No Peeking' gift tag.
