Where has the time gone - we are already approaching February. I don't know about anyone else, I do believe the older you get the quicker the days/months/years go by.
A friend asked my to make a wedding card for her niece who was getting married abroad - my remit was "anything bright with blue and to reflect the Caribbean" and hopefully I achieved that. It was a chance for me to use different colours to my usual wedding cards.
The card had to fold flat as it would be travelling to the wedding destination, so I decided to make a double easel card with different shaped easels to add a bit more interest. I stayed with 3 different colours - blue, orange & yellow throughout. As you can see I loved using the spellbinder edgeabilities to form the base in the 3 colours and also the large easel background.
The first topper on the large easel was a picture of the couple and framed with various layers of spellbinders classic and scalloped hearts. The other topper was made from one of my new heart lac'e dies - which did all the hard work and produced beautiful work, I could not have cut them freehand with the same precision. I punched a 2" circle and then kept winding organza ribbon to form a flower rosette (secured along the way with double sided tape) which hopefully represented a Caribbean flower.
The second easel was made from labels 8 and stamped with stamps from Inkylicious Special Day Flourish.
For the main stopper I brayered gloss card with Kaleidacolour Desert Heat Inkpad (an alternative to Big & Juicy). I cut a strip the length of the card and stamped palm trees and on a small piece of the same card used the smallest heart die and then stamped a couple walking (Stampscape Stamps) which was placed on the long strip - stopper for 1st easel. Last of all I had been given the 3D flip flops, as they were the wrong colour I distressed them with Wild Honey and Dried Marigold and these created the stopper for the 2nd easel.
