Cousin's Wedding

Afternoon folks and thanks for stopping by.
The sun is shining but there is a cool breeze, the swallows are here so summer can't be far away.
Just a quick post as my daughter and family are due shortly, Easter traffic jams permitting.
We were invited to my cousin's wedding at Spring Bank but we are away so have had to decline.
It is Pat's second wedding but they are both well past retirement so I presume it will not be all bells and whistles! So I was unsure what sort of card to make. Then I saw this weeks Muse inspiration and I thought I could do something on those lines.

This week the Muse is Therese Calvird

I liked the layout she has used and it was the sentiment that made me think of a wedding card originally.
I have gone with a WOW theme as I don't know Pat's colour scheme and used a Swiss dot embossing folder to create the central panel instead of a stencil and kept the basic sketch the same.

It was tricky to photograph as the sun reflects off the very shiny card! I tried 4 or 5 times and this was the best of the bunch.
The dotty panel was matted onto silver mirry and then mounted on pads onto a 5 x7 white base card.
The greeting was matted onto a Spellbinders Ribbon Tag with the hearts cut freehand as my punch was too small. Rainbow drops from Crafty Notions complete.

Apparently they are still stuck in traffic about 20 minutes away in normal circumstances!



  1. Beautiful card love the design so clean and elegant. Love Alison xx

  4. Your card is so elegant! You have done a great job with your photography, I've always struggled to get mirror card to look anything other than black. Have a great Easter with your family!

  5. Such a clean and elegant take on the Muse! So glad you joined us this week!
