Everything Eleanor

A few weeks ago I commissioned to create a special wedding card for a friends father in laws wedding. Now when I make anything to order I like to get a feel of what the recipient likes are such as favourite colours, hobbies etc to enable me to make it even more personalised.  So with it being a wedding I asked what the colour theme was.... not a difficult question.  Well I nearly fell off my chair when she said there wasn't one as they were both in their 70's .... bless them.  So I decided to keep the colours neutral and chose to use Confetti Cream card and the Brushed Gold card  from the main catalogue.

You will recognise this card as I've recently done one similar but I do believe that for a special occasion you cannot go wrong with this particular style of card.   To keep in line with the Brushed Gold card I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp the image from Everything Eleanor onto the top layer of Very Vanilla card once the verse had been printed out and the layer cut to shape.   I coloured in the petals by lifting Crumb Cake ink from the lid of the ink pad with the Aqua Painters and then stamped the butterflies onto scraps of Very Vanilla card and cut them out.  The butterflies were added to the card using dimensional with Rhinestone jewels to decorate.  A Vintage Brad and Victoria Crochet Trim was used to secure the layers.

The lid to the box is similar to one I did a few weeks back for my sister in law to give to a friend but on this one I've added more Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers.  I was pleased when I saw my friend at work last week and she told me that everyone at the wedding had commented on my card and that the bride and groom thought it was lovely. There is so much negativity in life that its nice to receive praise every now and then don't you think?  I felt really good for the rest of the day.

Well I hope you've liked what I've shown you today and, if you wish to purchase any products mentioned above, or anything from the catalogue, then please get in touch, my details are at the top of this page.
