Newlyweds Flower

The layout came from the Sweet Sunday 129 Challenge but I didn’t link it in time (oops!).  I’ve seen this flower in many projects lately and putting the paper through the textured impressions folder makes it easier to ruffle up and adds a natural texture.  To make it a little more suitable for the occasion, I used several pearls to accent the sentiment and a rhinestone brad to highlight the blossom of the flower.

Brining Mr. & Mrs. Owl Closer

This is a twist of my last project for Mr. and Mrs. Owl.  This one brings them closer to join their ‘wings’.  The colours of the hears on the owls aren’t showing up that well but in case you’re wondering, one is in Marina Mist and the other is in Wisteria Wonder so it’s definitely for Mr. and Mrs. !

Accordian Flower Wedding Cards

Here is the second of the wedding card series.  It’s actually a case from a double pocket card with an accordian flower that I saw on Youtube and I put those 2 elements together.  It’s a little tricky to adhere the flowers down at the beginning but put something with a bit of weight on it and hold for a few minutes while you work on the other part of the card.  You can very well substitute a different color for the butterflies and ribbons and replace the middle of the accordian flower with a large brad.  I’m thinking of doing a class with this series.  Anyone interested?

Mr. & Mrs. Owl

Summer is Vancouver is also a popular time for weddings.  I know there are a handful of our friends who are tying the knot this year so I needed to start pumping out wedding cards.  The owl punch was perfect for such sweet occasions.  If you move the side panels, it moves the owls closer to each other like in the second picture.  And the way they look at each other just makes your heart melt.  I cased the idea of this peek-a-boo card from a project that I found here.  And when it’s flattened, it will still fit inside a standard envelope.  Tadaa!  Isn’t it great?  I decided to use the new In-Colors 2011-13 for this card.  I just totally LOVE how the colors came together!!!

 
 
  The back of the card has a pocket for a tag to write a message and on the back of the tag is also a pocket for a gift card.  Cute and also practical!
