Sorry my blog has been so quiet! I've just been very busy. Quite a few deadlines have clashed and I'm under a bit of pressure! I've been working on a couple of wedding cards this week. I don't normally sell my cards but I do commissions for personalized wedding cards. I love doing wedding cards, they kind of suit my style. I can indulge in lots of lace, flowers, embossing and all things pretty. Sometimes the client asks me to incorporate some of the colors from the wedding, usually the bridesmaids dresses or from the invitation.
For this card I was asked to add some teal and I balanced it with some old gold and touches of natural lace. I used a gorgeous satin toffee ribbon from The Ribbon Reel, for the centre I used a vintage clip on earring. The background I embossed with the In Stitches embossing folder. I used Spellbinders Labels 14 for the label, the text I typed up and printed.
I always make a matching box for the card, it makes a lovely keepsake from a wedding. The recipients love the personalized touch! The patterned paper is from Victoria Gardens by Echo Park papers.
I added a little brass locket to the box with the cluster of roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The bride had a heart theme on her wedding invitations.
I really like the color combo on this one, makes a change from the usual whites with touches of peach or lemon! Ok, I've lots of projects to finish!! I'll be back tomorrow to join in the Swimming for Katie Renz Blog Hop and Fundraiser! There's quite a LOT of people taking part in this event so don't miss it, it's for such a wonderful lady and her family. It started today so check out all the details here.
