Daring Cardmakers - Royal Appointment

Daring Cardmakers - Royal Appointment Challenge.
In honour of the Royal Wedding of William and Catherine, Daring Cardmakers asked for a card that reflected the mood in the UK surrounding the celebrations. Something patriotic or Royal. The Union Jack, that very British symbol and so representative of all things English including the royals, elected itself for this card!
I used a plain white pre-folded card from Anita and made the Union Jack background from some glitter wrapping-paper I had left over from Christmas. The oval panel was cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities "Scalloped Ovals" and the "Invitation" stamp is from Papermania " Wedding Sentiments" clear stamp set. I sponged the edges of the scalloped oval with Versacolor pigment ink 18  in the only colour that fit the bill " Royal Blue". I hope you like it.


  1. The flag background is amazing - great card. Thanks for joining in with us at Daring Cardmakers.

  2. Hi Angela, really great card! The fact you live in Germany caught my eye - I lived there for over eight years a long time ago. My OH's son is living there now, with his German wife and two little girls. Hoping to visit them as usual this year - right down near Lake Konstanz. How do you manage to find craft supplies? I always look but apart from ribbon haven't found the right place as yet. Am now following you - you have two followers so have doubled in a couple of clicks. :)) Di x

  3. Hi Angela, yes you sure are close to Konstanz, Matt and Kai live near to Ravensburg. We went to the Anchutz factory in Ulm a couple of years back - surprised you didn't hear eldest grand daughter wailing like a siren when it was time to be fed:) Do let me know if ever you get stuck for stash - my email is on my log.
