Mr and Mrs Wedding Cards......

We made these cards and little Gift Bags for my last Workshop. This colour is Soft Suede.......nearly as good as Chocolate Chip! Did I just say that????

The paper is the Bridesmaid Speciality paper. It really is so gorgeous. The stamp set is Mr & Mrs and the Tiny Tag stamp set from the Mini catalogue. I use the handheld circle punch to punch the tiny hole and the elastic cord goes through much easier, than if you just use a pricking tool.

One of my ladies wanted to make a Wedding card with butterflies on it and this is what I came up with. The flower in the middle is the small one in the Mr and Mrs stamp set, cut out.

The little bags were cut down to 14cm and the cover was 21cm by the width of the bag(which was about 7.8cm but they are all different by a few mm). I scored it at 14cm and used the eyelet border punch along the front flap. The front was covered with another piece of Soft Suede and a smaller piece of Bridesmaid paper. The flap is held down with a velcro dot.

A Scallop circle was layered with the two butterflies and added on flat to the front flap to decorate.

This is the inside, just a tiny strip of the paper makes such a difference.

A tiny tag was added to the bridesmaid paper before the layer was added to the bag.

I used the Rich Razzleberry on my other samples, where I used the flower in the stamp set instead of the butterfly. The Polka dot ribbon is the Rich Razzleberry. I have nearly used up a whole roll already!!!
This time the paper is the Brides Speciality paper. Same as the Bridesmaid in design but Whisper white instead of Very Vanilla.

The flower was punched out using the 1 1/4" circle punch. I layered this onto the circle which was stamped on a seperate piece of whisper white and punched out using the 1 3/8" circle punch. That way you get all the dots!

Everything else was the same just in different colour and using the flower image.

A piece of ribbon was added to the bottom of the box this time.

I did another version with the butterfly in the white.

Hope you are all having a nice weekend,
Thanks for looking,
