Wedding Day Card

Hi all and welcome to my crafty blog.

This is my second post for today and I want to share this card I made for a wedding. The only condition was the card had to have something purple on it. I've had the backing paper for a while now, I'm a bit of a  crafty magpie, and I was just waiting for the right project to use it.

I have also entered this into the Craftymessers Facebook Daily Challenge for today, which is a call to just make something, on any theme, any size and just show it. My kind of challenge.

My card-base is a piece of  A4 white pearlesence card folded into an A5 card. The backing paper has been cut to 1cm smaller than the card-base and wrapped with a purple organza ribbon tied in a bow and adhered to the card-base. The two hearts were die cut from pre-embossed paper using a Tim Holtz Primitive Hearts die and the edges rubbed with a purple ink. The hearts were adhered together using dimensional adhesive and tied with a small gold lace ribbon. I made the flower from some tissue paper that came with a gift and and layered the rough cut circles of paper until they resembled a flower. I finished the card with two 'sort-of' hat-pins with pearl hearts and gold and pearl beads.

Thanks for stopping by to visit don't forget to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you.

take care,
