Birdhouse Wedding


Hi all, 2nd post for today, and I am back with.......Surprise, Surprise....yes another wedding card!!! This is my 20th, so I am now half way there!!! so I am afraid I will still be boring you all with wedding cards for a while yet!

For this card I have used some "Kanban" stamps which I have inked up with "Brilliance - pearlescent orchid & pearlescent olive". The little birds inside the cadge are from "Creative expressions"......unfortunately I have stamped one of the birds a little squint so it looks a bit more like it is been attacked, as opposed to some nice romantic love birds...which was the look I was going for!......I would have stamped it again but the birds were a bit of an afterthought, and I had already cut out the cadge, and I couldn't be bothered to do it again.

For the embossed detail I have used a "cuttlebug" embossing folder.

Finally I added some vellum flowers, and a few pearls, which I coloured with copics...you cant see the colour too much which is what I wanted, the pearls were just a little too white on their own, and finally I added a peel off message which has been coloured with copics.

This is my entry for:

The Shabby Tea Room - make an impression
Charisma Cardz - Watch the Birdy
Totally Papercrafts - Swirls and pearls

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls

  11. Juls how you think of the ideas I will never know, its one of those things I strugle with is wedding cards, I think because I always need lots of colour, but as you have proved time and time again you dont need lots of colour to make truly spectacular cards.
    have a great weekend love chris xx

  18. Hi Jules,
    I can only express how right Chris is and totally agree, what was in the water in Canada, I think you should bottle it, you have come home with vengance, all your wedding card's are out of this world, so different from what's going on in blogland and such a massive refreshing change...

    Sorry for the lack of visit's lately, I am on a ban this week, hubby's home, he asked if I could live without blogging for 1 week, what can I say, I was doing well to begin with...lol

    Keep up the great work...
    catch up soon
