As you may have noticed I rarely take on commissions for cards or creations, this was mainly because as I worked in a card and gift shop it didn't seem fair to my boss to sell cards! lol
However I took on this card as a commission as it was for some really good friends from my drama group and they wanted 2 disparate cards at the same time I thought it would be fun!
The first is today's offering a wedding card for their daughter. It was to be white with no colour to relieve it, always difficult, and this was no exception. I started by pulling out one of my favourite dies the Sue Wilson striplet (just realised there is another striplet in the collection must order it when I get back to the U.K.)
This is a large card as it is made by folding a sheet of A3 card in half, I then took off one edge to make it a little taller and thinner!
The striplet is cut twice with the border for the highest front part, the background is cut without the border in 2 lines down each side the die is cut twice along the strip to make it big enough. Ive hidden any joins with a wide strip of white satin ribbon and added a big bow to offset the sentiment which I printed using draft handwriting font which is available as a free download just search on google.
Studded with a few pearls and a box made to match and a card to order was born although to be honest it did take a couple of hours!
