Good morning one and all. Hope you are all bright eyed and bushy tailed. I have been trying to catch up with some cards that I have been asked to do but then I get way laid with other things. . . . .isn't it always the way?
Before I go on, just wanted to say a big "Get Well Soon" to poor Ita, who is in hospital. Hope you have a swift recovery chuck.
I have been holding onto today's card as there have been a few Labels 4 cards flying around blogland and as they don't seem to be drying up, I thought "blow it !!!" I had been asked to make a wedding card in sky blue in deference to the groom's favourite football team so this is what I came up with.
When I presented it to the lady (the brides mother) she said would I mind doing one with sky blue buddleijas instead !!! (one of life's grit your teeth moments)
This was made in a similar way to the "Best Wishes" black and gold card so I won't repeat all instuctions.
I made the centre portion and Elegant labels 4 frame bit first and increased my mats and layers outwards accordingly.
The sky blue card is pearlised card from a local craft shop.
The flowers and leaves are made from the Bitty Blossoms die set using white card which I had inked to the shade of blue I wanted with a Papermania light blue pad.
Sentiment stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Stampendous white powder. I then cut it out with victorian pattern scissors. This was then stuck to a Labels 8 mat.
Close up below.
I have done another for a silver anniversary which I will post in a few days.
Well, that's me for now as I have to sort out dinner (This post is scheduled !!!). Happy crafting to you all.
