Peter and Nichola's Wedding

Today's card is for a wedding that took place yesterday - I didn't want to post it until after the event!

I've used some grey and white polka dot paper for the background - this will coordinate with the wedding wallet posted earlier. The bird die is new from Sissix bought at a recent craft fair  and as I didn't have a wing die, I've improvised with a leaf punch. The leaf die actually has 3 leaves on, but I cut it twice and cut a leaf off each. The heart and greeting oval are also die-cuts.

I'm entering this into the challenges at:

The Paper Players - cut it out
Naughty or Nice #37 - feature a creature
Dies R Us #68 - something new (bird die)
Creative Knockouts #183 - die/punch frenzy

Thanks for visiting

Wedding Gift

Today's make isn't a card, but a special wallet to hold money for a wedding gift...

I scored and folded an A4 sheet of thin charcoal card to make the wallet shape and sealed the sides using double sided tape on the inside. I covered the 'flap' with grey and white polka dot patterned card and added a pink border strip.

The image is a sticker from a very old wedding scrapbook kit and I've mounted it on a die cut tag. I then added a piece of white grosgrain ribbon using a slip knot. Finally, I added three coordinating epoxy hearts.

On the back of the wallet, I've added a pink address label.

This was so easy to make!

I'm entering my creation into the challenges at:

Crafty Gals Corner #112 - add ribbon
The Crafty Addicts - clean and simple
Die Cutting Divas #306 - ribbons and bows
Stamp, Ink, Paper #88 - anything but a card
