Happy Thanksgiving ...



To all my sweet friends ... I am so thankful for your friendships... your sharing and your caring ... have a beautiful day!

A lady I worked with many years ago asked me to make a card for her daughters' upcoming wedding ... The brief was 'traditional' ... verse not too sloppy .. That was it. But she did let me know that the wedding colours are ivory and red ...
I hope this will suffice ... 
I apologise for the photos ... we are experiencing high winds, dull skies and rain ... not perfect for photographing indoors ...


This is the box I made to accommodate the card


My card stock was printed first with Pink Petticoat digital paper from the Old Fashioned Girl collection which I slightly altered to get more of an ivory blend


The card itself is in pure white with a hint of Ivory and a single red rose


I cut a frame and embossed it then layered it onto pearlescent ivory paper before using foam pads to adhere it to the card - The frame has a scattering of perfect pearls in silver which contrast with the pearls in the little spray and on the lace


I cut the tag from the same pearlescent paper and stamped and embossed a sentiment from a WM stamp set "Text It"... 


The verse


I had a slight problem with the ribbon fraying ... so a little tip for you if you too encounter this problem ... if you hold the ribbon edge above a flame ... a candle, match or even better a lighter ... it will seal the edge. It's a bit like when you make flowers over a flame ... but be very careful you don't hold it too close or it will curl like the flowers and you want it just to seal and not curl.

Ok ... I have a group to prepare for so I'll leave you to enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner ... but before I do I just want to say Thank You to my lovely blog friend keren ... We spent a few hours together yesterday and her company was just what I needed ...

Till soon
