Love is in the Air

Hello Everyone

I have had the opportunity to make some wedding and engagement cards recently. Catherine recently celebrated her Stampin' Up! themed wedding day - her colours were Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand - Catherine has beautiful long curly red hair and I think those would be the perfect wedding colours for her.

Also my lovely friend Laura got engaged on holiday and then my niece Sophie was engaged to Alex last month.

Here are the cards I designed...

This large double-fold card has vellum cardstock in the 'windows', showing monograms behind. I used the Broadsheet Alphabet for the initials and the flowers are stamped using Vintage Vogue, which makes a beautiful wedding card. The designer paper is from the Lap of Luxury set.

Now that is one of my more-is-more cards - my class ladies will be laughing reading this as I struggle with clean and simple designs.

But just to prove I CAN do simple, here is another design, this time done with a Big Shot embossing folder called Elegant Boquet.

I ran both the vellum cardstock and the card underneath through the Big Shot to get the embossed flower image. Inside I gently daubed the flowers to allow a little of the colour to show through.

The text is from Curly Cute - my favourite greeting set - also I have it in clear mount so it is always straight! LOL This is what is under the vellum.

I have been embossing and debossing envelopes too! There is no stopping me now I have my Big Shot!

Hope you like my wedding cards - back with more projects soon.
