Hi friends! I hope you had some wonderful crafty fun on World Cardmaking Day. Alas, my day was consumed with buying a van (yes, we finally did it and boy do I officially feel older…), so I didn’t get to play. Sadface.
I’ve mentioned before that my cousin’s wedding is coming up in a little over a month, and so I of course had to create some monogrammed stationery for her. (Anybody who has ever known me should expect to receive monogrammed stationery from me at some point in their lives. It’s what I do.) Her shower was Saturday, and bummer of all bummers, I couldn’t make it. So, I had to make some extra special gifts for her. One of the gifts was a special request from the bride: her wedding jewelry. I’ve made jewelry for the last decade, and so was I ever honored that she asked me to make the jewelry that she would wear at her wedding. (Pardon the terrible lighting in the photo; 10 pm is not optimal for a photo shoot.)
I made a set of eight cards…
Along with a box to hold them…
The box was created using my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board, and I added a band of coral-y red paper around to create a belly band. A Vintage Cream scalloped oval die cut from PTI and some more beautiful dahlias finished it off.
I hope she likes these cards! I have an idea for another set of cards to give her for her wedding that matches her invitation better; my brain heard “dahlia” and immediately wanted to use this set. I’m going to be linking this up to The Ton’s blog for their WCMD festivities. Can’t wait to see everyone else’s creations!
