Bit late posting tonight but been a busy day. After work I went with hubby to get him some new shirts and trousers. We then went through his wardrobe getting rid of all the stuff he has been hoarding - just in case it came back into fashion lol. Anyway, an hour later and three big bags full we were finished. So no crafting done tonight but a bit of tidying and throwing away instead.
As some of you will have read on my blog we went to a lovely wedding last weekend. I was involved in making some of the wedding stationery. More of that on a future post. Today I would like to share the card and keepsake gift that I made for the happy couple.
The wedding was beautiful with a theme involving lots of flowers and birdcages. Our wedding card to them mirrored the overall theme. Apologies but there are a few pictures.
I used my Marianne Creatables birdcage die to make a feature in the corner. I shaped the die before attaching it to the cardstock so it stood off the card. I was then able to add lots of flowers cascading from the birdcage. In the opposite corner I used another ivy die that I have and added more flowers and a little heart charm. The sentiment was printed on the computer and the little doves are from a stamp that I have. I added some pink organza ribbon and a bow at the bottom. I added some distress ink around the edges of the card to create a vintage feel.
I then decided to have a play with my birdcage die and made this little keepsake for them. I got the idea for this after seeing this video on You Tube.
As you can see I cut four of the birdcages and attached them together to create a 3d birdcage. I added some flowers to the inside of the birdcage and added a metal birdcage charm too. Around the base of the birdcage I added some ribbon and lace. I made some legs out of card so it stood nicely and added some gems and punched butterflies.
Here is another photo showing a different angle.
I then made a display box to put it in. The box has acetate panels on all four sides.
A final picture showing both items together.
I was really pleased with the overall result and I am pleased to say that the bride and groom loved them.
Thanks for popping by and looking forward to hearing what you all think.
