To have and to hold!

Hi folks, before I start just wanted to wish you all a very happy Easter and hope you've had a great start to the Easter weekend.

I'm back again with - let me see - oh yes another easel card and box combo. Sorry guys really hope you are not getting fed up with seeing these, but everyone seems to have asked for one of these lately. Anyway, what I have to share with you today is a wedding one and the only guide I was given was their colour theme of dusky pink so this is what I came up with.

A piccie of the card/box and the box I made for it to go in.

Front view piccie and finally a side view.

I used the gorgeous Greetings Farm "Cake Topper" stamp and followed the Mojo Monday sketch. The groom was coloured using copics and decoupaged and the bride was paper pieced onto gemstone cardstock so its nice and shimmery and then decoupaged. Of course I've used a ton of stickles on everything from the flowers to the dress to the box it comes in. Papers used are the new Papermania "Confetti" range. Cardstock used is Bazzill and flowers are from Hobbycraft. The charm is a bargain from the £1 shop - six in a pack for yes you've guessed it a £1.
Well thats it from me today everyone. I don't need to do anymore of these card/box combos for a little bit so hopefully I will now have time to play a little. I'm going to shock myself and enter some more challenges with this one as for once I haven't missed the deadline with them!!!!
Colour create challenge - choice of pastels
Mojo Monday - sketch
Catch ya later guys and hope you don't pig out on too much choccy. I'm going to be good and pace myself NOT!!!!!
Take care

  6. Hello Ann-Marie,
    Thanks for your lovely comments. These easel box combos are really great. I have a friend who will be 40 in a couple of weeks so may give one a try. I would recommend trying the never ending card its really fun to make but can get a bit confusing where to add embelishemnets etc :). I think they would be great as Christmas cards.
    I know I have gone a bit mad on my blog but I think I am getting the hang of it now :) As for making the cards I just can't stop.....I did get the kitchen decorated over the weekend so that is my excuse to be able to play with my craft stuff. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I look forward to you sharing more of your creations.
