Good Morning my dears, Sorry this post is so heavy handed with pictures, I just wanted to tryand get all the elements included.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, I was working over the weekend but still managed to do a little crafting. I was asked to make a Silver Wedding card for a member of the family, with no real guidelines so I decided to go kinda vintage style and make an easel card with no image involved, just paper, ribbon, flowers, die cuts, pins and Tim Holtz distress inks. I'm quite pleased how it turned out.
Of course there had to be a box for the card to fit into so using my trusty Hougie score board and white card this is the end result. The full recipe for my box and card are below this post.
Wishing you all a wonderful day and week ahead.
