Wedding Card

Who doesn't love a wedding?

My friend had two granddaughters getting married within weeks of each other 
and she wanted hand made cards for them.
This is one of them:

You can't see it in the photo but I had bought a beautiful pearl embossed
cream card stock so I kept it reasonably plain.

Sue Wilson - Shadow Boxes - Mr & Mrs
Frantic Stamper Die - With this Kiss Couple
(I cut three colours out and joined them accordingly)
The flowers were:
Heartfelt Creations - Arianna Blooms
(with pearls in centre)
Cheery Lynn - Baby's Breath
Cheery Lynn - Flourish Leaf Strip
Added a little bit of cream and gold trim ribbon.
Inside I did a 3d heart with gold embossed words:
(Forgot to take a photo of inside)

Happy Crafting everyone.

Have a Happy Holy Christmas

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

This card was for the family of a dear friend who passed away a couple of weeks ago.
Her passing was expected so I bought this stamp in memory of her.
She loved lilac and flowers.

Now every time I use this stamp I shall remember her and remember to pray 
for her family on her behalf.

Items Used:
Background: Embossing Folder with Hearts
Penny Black Stamps - Collage of Wishes
Xcut Nesting Dies - Ornate Frame
Elizabeth Craft Designs - With Sympathy
Blessings to everyone.

70th Box Card

I made this box card for a friend turning 70.

The top of the box I used:

Joy Crafts Dies - Circle French Lily
Heartfelt Creations - Arianna Blooms
Cheery Lyn - Fanciful Flourish
Lea-bilities - Flower Blossom (Leaves only)
Heartfelt Creations - Layered Elegant Swirl
Poppycrafts - Happy Birthday Cake (Banner Only)
Avery Elle Elle-ments Dies - Count on it
Pearls, Rinestones in flower centre

Around Box Lid:
Martha Stewart Punch - Deco Shells
Poppycrafts - Bow

Inside Box:
Same Flowers and Flourish.
Cheery Lynn - Babys Breath Flower Kit
Poppycrafts - Numbers
Poppycrafts - Happy Birthday Present with Balloon (words only)
Memory Box - Cascadia Butterfly Trio
Impression Obsessions - Butterfly Set
Memory Box - Dancing Butterflies
Ultimate Crafts - Butterfly Freedom
Marianne - Elegant Butterfly

I made a little box inside the card that fitted the boxed gift inside it with 
a lid easily able to be taken off.  The base of the crafted box was pasted down 
but the gift box can be removed easily.

One flap had a pocket with a slide out card to write the sentiment on.

Something different, easy but time consuming.
The end result is totally worth it.

Happy Crafting.
Crafty Hugs, Carol.
