Saturday, 2 June 2012


Hey guys. So it's JUNE. A whole new month ahead of us. Already. I know.

So I though it'd be nice to aim for at least a post a day here over at Cartolinas. I always tell you guys that I've been busy making stuff.. and 99.9% of the time that is generally the case.. the problem starts when I actually come to share it with you guys. I don't know what it is, but my posts are like buses. Loads at once and then days with none. I hope to change that, at least for the month of JUNE!

So today, being a lovely chillaxing Saturday.. for those of you lucky enough to not be stuck at work like me.. BoooHOO!! I thought I'd show you a little wedding commission I made up lately! :) You guys know I love these types of cards - you can go as mad as or be as subtle as you like with embellishments, and 9 times out of 10 (a lot of 'stats' in this post today! LOL!!) there are no images to be coloured. Relaxing makes, to say the least - just make sure you don't dribble Glossy Accents everywhere like I usually do when using Wild Orchid Craft goodness!!

I've used some papers from First Edition Isabelle collection, and kept the layout pretty simple with most of the 'stuff' in the middle/bottom third of the card - depending on how you want to look at it! LOL. I've used a gorgeous stamp from Waltzingmouse - Compact Sentiments which I've cut using a Papertrey Ink Fillable Frames #10 die and co-ordinating stamp.

I've added some silver satin ribbon in a cute little (big) bow diagonally above the sentiment which is the largest thing on the card. I then glued, very messily, an organza flower and a 15mm white rose, both from Wild Orchid Crafts. Hmm, what else? I've taken the corners of the base patterned paper out with a circle punch and spotted some white liquid pearls here and there. Oh, and a yummy glittery Doodlebug brad - because I love them. :) 

Thank you for stopping by today! :) Enjoy your Saturday, whatever you're up to.

Oh, and before I forget - have you linked up to the party over at Pollycraft yet?! See THIS POST for all of the details and MORE!
