Wedding card

Hello sweet bloggers,

Hope you have been having a good day - mine was wonderful, spent over tea and cake with dear friends.

Here is a card I made with my Quickcutz heart die after many failed attempts at getting a decent die cut. The flowers have been punched and layered with glossy white and parchment paper in yellow. I have used ribbon in place of the sentiment and you can see a teeny weeny bit of a Martha Stewart border punch peeping out. Liquid pearls in the centre of the flowers and pearls on one side of the heart finish it off. I found the centre of the heart quite plain but Zeenya said it looked just fine. And it sold!


I am going to enter this in the following challenges:


Happy crafting,
Monica

Hi Monica and Happy New Year to you. Sorry I haven't visited in a while still have our daughter at home so life is not routine. School starts again 30th Jan so after that. What a lovely card....that heart die is so pretty and the added flowers really finish the card nicely. So great to see you entering this with us at Unstampabelles. :-)

Hi Monica - Happy New Year! Love this card - it really annoys me when the dies don't cut cleanly. I read that you can use wax paper between them and the paper and it is supposed to make the cut neater. I now resort to my thin metal shim - it works a treat.
