Box for the card
I have been so bad at updating this blog :( Mum and Dad came home from Australia last week, their cases bulging with craft goodies for me. So I haven't been crafting much.....just drooling over it all before tidying it away ~ lol.
What I have made though is this wedding card. I love Messy Rabbit stamps and coloured this pair in with Distress Inks. I did all the stitching by hand using the Tim Holtz clear ruler to pierce the holes first. The line along the bottom is a bit wonky where the ruler slipped and I didn't notice until it was too late....oops! The doily lace edge around the circle was made using the Martha Stewart doily lace edger punch (I saw a tutorial on how to do it ages ago but can't remember whose it was - sorry!) The flowers were embellished with liquid pearls and the leaves with stickles glitter glue.
Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for visiting :)
Edited to add
The card was too raised to fit in a regular envelope so I made a little box to put it in. I usually just print an insert for inside my cards but this time as it was going in a box I decorated the inside too. The heart at the top is stitched (using a papermania template) and the flowers & leaves on the bottom corner are all punched.
