Wedding fever

Hello all! After working nearly 40 hours in 4 days I'm surprised I can even function enough to do this post, but I wanted to get these cards up for you to have a look at before I collapse into bed once again. I managed to get them done last weekend for my sweet girl who will be attending a few weddings shortly. I know what you're thinking.....what's with all the cards lately! Well as you may or may not know, my scrapbooking mojo has gone AWOL so combined with working long hours my creativeness has taken a bit of a beating. However I really needed to get these cards made last weekend & I really enjoyed using my stamps & of course the Big Shot.
This first card is inspired by the very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Marelle Taylor. I've taken her lead with the colours (Kraft & W/White) but I've used my new Triple Treat flower stamp & punches & I've embossed some of the petals with white embossing powder. I've also stamped & embossed the envelope.

I used the lovely framelits die on the next card & made it into a tri-fold card - a little tricky to do but worth the effort. The bride & groom are embossed with black embossing powder & I've used Dazzling Diamonds on the bride's veil.

I love the seem binding so much that I purchased it in several colours :)  Can't help myself. I also like using black & V/Vanilla together for weddings - quite elegant I think.

Anyway I hope you've had a great week & thanks for looking.


  1. Jo, both of your cards look stunning. Been thinking about those framelits dies abit of late....they do look the vanilla and black very classic!!!
    You workaholic, you!!!
    Have a great w/end Jo!

  2. It took me a while to decide if I really could justify owning the framelits, but I've used them heaps already & they'll make great journalling tags on a scrapbook page too & you could layer them :)
