More Romance

It was our 37th Wedding Anniversary yesterday.

The card I made was quite simple, using the materials I had out on my desk. I think it works though and like the way it turned out.

It’s an A5 white card with a pale green textured backer. SAM_0716

The hearts have been stamped and embossed in white on pearlescent paper and layered up with just a tiny white border. 3 little paper daisies have green brad centres and have been added to the top corner.

SAM_0717The sentiment is also stamped and embossed in white with the whole thing finished off with a few pieces of card candy.

Another wedding card, this time for the couple next door who are getting married in a couple of weeks.

I’ve used white and pale pink pearlescent paper onto white hammered card, a Martha Stewart punch and white embossing powder on the heart stamp. SAM_0712

This time adding a loop of small pink seed beads and a couple of silver peel-offs.

Sugar Bowl #65 take 2

Another card for the Sugar Bowl challenge using the same sketch but a different image.


This is my new Luv a Latte stamp from Sugar Nellie. In good light the pink doesn’t dominate the card quite so much as it appears here, it is after all a blue challenge.

I’ve used Promarkers to colour along with a Cuttlebug folder, Martha Stewart punch and peel-off greeting.

Matching set.

Following on from the memory wire bracelet I did a few weeks ago, I decided to make a necklace to match.

I had to carefully count the seed beads and space them out as they are the last that I have in this lovely colour.


SAM_0693I’ve made 2 bracelets in this colourway now, one chunky incorporating the larger beads and one quite fine using just seed beads. Both are so easy to wear, I love them.SAM_0696

Wedding card

Here at last is the wedding card I was asked to make.SAM_0679The base is hammered white card, overlaid with silver mirror board and pink pearlescent paper with a punched heart border. The sentiment is computer generated.

SAM_0683The hearts have been stamped onto white pearlescent paper, embossed in white and layered up onto mirror board. Swarovski crystals have been hung from the top of each one.

There are 4 pages of inserts, though i’m showing only 3 as the first has a photo of the couple. The centre pages are printed onto the same pink pearlescent paper as on the front while the outer 2 are on super smooth white paper.

This page has 3 verses and a photo of one of my son’s doves.SAM_0676

This has 1 verse and the dove with room for a handwritten message.SAM_0675

The last page is a picture of the vessel on which they will be spending their honeymoon.

SAM_0677The reverse of the card features the same papers as the front. (excuse the finger-marks on the mirror card, they will be wiped off)

SAM_0678The card measures around 19cm square so a single A4 sheet was not big enough, that’s why it’s joined in the back. It also gave me the chance to hide the workings of attaching 4 separate insert papers as they go between the fold and back piece.
