Wedding Cards

Hello friends... I'm not sure what's happening in SA, but it seems as if there's a wedding every weekend these days!  Heck... I'm not complaining as it's business for me. I've been asked to make a few Best Wishes cards for the happy couples.  I thought I would share one I made last night with you.

I was told to use lots of bling, so I decided on lots of glitter which I don't use that often on my cards.  Boy... I forgot how fine that glitter is and was practically covered in the stuff!  The card turned out OK and Sherlene was happy with it.  Hope you like it too....

Then I was asked to make a card for everyone to sign, for a colleague of ours who is getting married at the end of this month.  Thought I would use the Top Hat and Veil pic again and the Best Wishes stamp and this is what I came up with.  My friend Deidre was very happy with it and we'll be getting everyone to sign it tomorrow.  Hope you like it as much as we do... lol

Don't you just love the corner punch ? You use it twice... on the one side it cuts your corner and if you put it in on the other side, it embosses over it.  One of the tools I've taken OUT of my drawer so that I know it's there and I can use it more often!

Here's a closer look at the top of the card, which folds beautifully and to finish off is tied with a silver ribbon and rose.

Well this is what kept me busy last night!  It's a public holiday in SA on Tuesday and I've put in for a day's leave on Monday, so it's going to be a long weekend - which means I get to play with my paper and tools which I so love doing, but have so little time for during the week!   

Will catch up with you all later in the week, so for now it's good night!  Thanks for the visits and your lovely comments, always nice hearing from you.  Take care, Sharon x
