True Lurves...

...awww, friends of ours got engaged over Christmas... awwww, I loves a wedding I do, being a bit of an old romantic.  So, I made them a card.  Now, regular readers of my daily wafflings will be well aware that cardmaking isn't really my forte... but I do like to make special ones and personalizing them.. so I got my "pretty" head on and made this for them.



The papers are the gorgeous Violet Crush Kaisercraft collection that were in my Jones DT kit this month.  Check it out too... purple!  I know!  Told ya, I am turning purple this year for some reason.  Mind you, it isn't difficult with these papers cos they is lushness indeedily.  I added Seedless Preserves DI around the edges of the papers and card base - well, I can't make a clean and simple card to save me life, there has to be some sort of inkiness going on.  The words are computer generated and die cut with Nestabilities.  I added some Kaisercraft Wisteria paper flowers... but whilst they are gorgeous, they looked a little pale, so I smudged some more of the Seedless Preserves on to them and then slapped some Glue & Seal on the edges of the petals and then sprinkled Rock Candy Distress Glitter over the top so they sparkle gently.  A twist of ribbon and there it was made.  One day I am going to go on a proper card making course and learn how to do the fancy stuff that a lot of people do!


I am scheduling this post as today I am travelling to Pickwell Farm in Southampton for two days of Melt Pot Master Classing... so I better get a wiggle on and get myself some beauty sleeps!  Have a great weekend, don't forget to pop back tomorrow for a brand new Sunday Stamper challenge.  Thanks for looking... TTFN

Hi Hels, What a fabulous card for their Engagement, bet they adored it. Purples/lilacs are my favourite colours, so this is 'right up my street' haha.

Hi Hels,
Your beautiful Melt Pot bezel arrived yesterday from your last C&C show. Thank you so very much! I shall treasure it.
I am full of pangs of remorse because I am not joining you at Pickwell Farm this week-end, but my workload is so ginormous this January... Have fun!
Love to you and all the ladies at Pickwell. Come again soon!
Lis XX
