Belated New Year

Belated New Year to everyone. This is my first blog this year due to being poorly , not a good start but onward and upward (fingers crossed).  I hope you are all having fun crafting, especially being stuck inside with this snow.

A have been making a couple wedding cards commissioned by a friend today.  This is the first.

Materials Used:-

  1. 8x8 card
  2. Hunkydory Background card
  3. Pearlescent Card - cut using Spellbinders Grande Shapeabilities - creative book pages then embossed using Spellbinders Grande Impressabilities - Butterfly Garden
  4. Wine Glasses - Stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder.  Glazed with glossy accents adding just a little sparkle using glitter glue.  Small bows placed on the glasses and embellished with gold heart confetti.
  5. The heart sentiment was made using my computer to type the sentiment and then an old heart die (think its an xcut) to cut it out.
  6. The Lily was made using my cricut machine and then chalked to add the pink and glittered to add the gold sparkle. I used Crealies Creative Shapes - CL CS 12 to cut out the leaves and finally added some stringed pearls.
  7. The Corners were cut out using Shapeabilities - Venetian Accents
  8. Wedding Rings Embellishment added to the top right hand corner.
The Bling - I used pearls, peeloffs and confetti to add the extra pazazz

Thank you for taking a look at my card and I hope you liked it.
 I would really appreciate any feedback if you have time, good or bad I love to know other peoples opinions.  Tomorrow I will post the second card commissioned for the same wedding.
