His Lordship and I are off to a wedding this afternoon. I made a card weeks back and put it in a safe place. Big mistake. The safe place is so safe that neither of us can find it (I expect Kye the cat knows exactly where it is, sleeps in it regularly and is laughing at the frantic search).
No matter. I bought a few card kits for this reason. Well, usually lack of organisation, not loss of organisation.
I chose a cream and gold topper and a cream, embossed card blank from the Kanban Decadent Delights collection, stamped a load of Dreamees flowers and pretty twiddly bits in gold on cream paper and set the Scan’N’Cut to cut them out as I showered ready for the wedding.
At first I intended to use some of the beautiful cream,embossed card with gold foiling in the collection, but once I laid out my card ingredients it didn’t need anything extra and I think would have been too much. The only thing I did for added interest was ink the edge of the heart topper with a pinky purply ink.
I shaped my flowers using an embossing tool and foam mat. After sticking the heart topper slightly right of central on my card blank, I peeped 4 of the pretty twiddly bits out of the top of the heart and layered lots of flowers down the left of the heart.
Et voila. Pretty, I think, and appropriate for a wedding, and took about 10 minutes to put together. Then writing thius post has let my nails dry, off to get dressed now.
Happy Bank Holiday x
