Teal Wedding...

Happy Sunday,

Todays card is the wedding card I made for some friends of mine that got married on friday ( you may have seen all the posts on Facebook)  As the card has now been given I can safely share the card.

The colour scheme for the wedding was a soft Teal and White and you all know I love to coordinate so although this may not be a usual colour for a wedding but it worked on this occasion.  There was also some extra pressure on this one as there were other craft demonstrators attending so I was competing with Sizzix and Tonic! lol

I stared by cutting the 4 squares used in the background form the butterfly frame by Creative Expressions in white and backed these with Teal.

I then cut the CE Love expressions die in both teal and white and backed these with the alternate colour.

Using the Cape Daisy I made up the flower as shown using a white pigment ink pad to shade this and make the flower softer ( well it is a wedding card!)  I arranged this with metallic linx, pearl sprays and a large messy white organza bow.

I made a box to fit the card at 8x8" using an old die cut for the front with another cape daisy spray and stick on pearls.

I have included the box I made, as I'm sure you know I like to make boxes for my cards as I find envelopes really difficult to make!  ( I will learn to do this as I have just bought a new punch that makes corners on one side and puts the envelope notch in on the other!)

It was a wonderful day and wedding and the card was well recieved ( phew!)

  5. Hi John
    A beautiful card and great colours. My goddaughter's wedding anniversary is this month and their wedding colour was teal (and I have the 2 main dies) so I may make something similar - thanks for the inspiration.
    It was great to meet you yesterday at Newbury. I had a great day, lots of inspiration from all the demos and samples, and of course I came away with lots of crafty goodies to play with.

  12. Morning John, not the usual wedding card I agree but beautiful never the less, and I do think its nice to be different, and if the bride and groom loved it there is nothing more to be said.

  13. A beautiful card John and yes I saw lots of lovely pictures from the wedding. You should never compare your work with others we all do things differently - however human nature being what it is I know we all do and so I understand. I am sure you had nothing to worry about though as everyone agrees your cards are outstanding.

    Love and hugs
    Helen xx

  14. A very beautiful card and box for that special day .

  17. Hello John, a beautiful card and co-ordinating box. I like to make wedding cards that co-ordinate with the wedding colours to. It really makes them stand out. Glad you had a great day. Bx

  18. That's gorgeous John. I'm sure the bride and groom were delighted with it. I love using the butterfly die to make a background like that - it's very effective. xxx

  19. Beautiful card and box If ever I make a wedding card I try and follow the theme The cape daisies look amazing I wonder how many layers it took to get that effect
    I wonder if your Envelope punch board is the same as the one I have on order ......

  20. What a beautiful card and box, John. I am sure your friends will treasure it.
