...Wedding cards.

This time for a friend.

Pete & Connie's wedding is next week and I have really struggled to come up with a design for their wedding card that I thought would be suitable.

I have spent much of today 'titty-vaiting' and have come up with two cards...

I have made a card with a cutout inside displaying dangling hearts and a "hide & seek" card - I think I will be giving them the cut-out card.

A sheet of A4 pearl card foldeed in half, a second sheet with a heart shape cut from the centre and folded like a 'w' and some hammered gold card for decorating inside the spine and down the edges. Cream organza ribbon, some gold peel-offs and some glitterations border strips.

...tried to keep it classic but un-cluttered.

The hide & seek card came out better than I had hoped (only the second one I have ever made) but I'm not sure the couple would understand the mechanics behind the design.

I love these cards and the fact that they hold a surprise.

A sheet of A4 pearl card 'w' fold. Two A5 sheets of hammered gold card - folded lengthways and slightly trimmed. Glitterations border strips and alphas plus a selection of gold peel-offs. The trickiest part of these cards is probably the cutting and folding of the base card to allow for the gold card to slot in - then it is just a case of decorating.

This card will go into my card box and hopefully I'll be able to give it to someone who crafts and will understand the workings.............
