Wedding Card for my Nephew


Hello There Friends

I hope you have had a lovely weekend.  I have had a fabulous one sharing time (and lots of chatting) with the WOYWW friends that attended The Crop II yesterday.  Thanks Julia and LLJ for hosting such a wonderful day.  I will share some piccies on Wednesday.  

Tonight I thought I would share the Wedding Card I made recently for my Nephew and his Bride Michelle.  The Butterfly Tree is by Poppy Stencil which I bought at Ally Pally with a little gentle persuasion from Playmates, and the glitter is by Hampton Art.  I used a Martha Stewart corner punch and mounted it onto an easel card which I made using Cordinations cardstock.  Tim Holtz flourish stamp.  The small butterflies were punched from a MS punch and embossed with glimmer embossing powder and finished with pearls before mounting them on the card.  There is also a Snippet of ribbon too.

The larger butterflies were made using the same glitter and a butterfly brass stencil which I have had for a loooong time (and never used!).  A Tag cut using a Stampin Up punch and stamp and layered.  
Another butterfly inside and stamping inside with white embossing powder.
And another butterfly on the reverse side.  

Hope you like my card.  All the white cardstock used (except the tree and butterflies)  is from my (groaning) Snippets box so I can share this with my Playground buddies.    Off to see if Miss Di managed to smuggle us some Ducks and Terrapins back to the Playground!!

One question for you....is there another Bank Holiday this week?  I could sure do with another short week!!  

TTFN

Gorgeous card, Hettie. I love butterflies and these look so pretty. And thanks for the description - it's almost like a tutorial.
The bride & groom must have been thrilled with this keep-sake.
Cheers,
Ros.

What a gorgeous card! It was lovely to sit next to you on Saturday whilst you were lace making - and that you think I am a clean painter!! I tried hard not to splash...

Hello
Such a beautiful card, a card that the happy couple will treasure.
The butterflies look as though they are actually in flight.

Lovely! I really like how you used the butterflies as the leaves. A beautiful card!

Di said...

Oh Sam - this really is stunning! Just gave me an idea for my Arboscello Tree die - might pinch this idea at some point if that's OK. You can have extra goes on the swings as a bribe! :)

Delighted the Crop went so well - and the weather was stunning to.

Hugs, Di xx

Delightful tree. It's all a flutter and lovely and glimmery. What's this about terrapins for the duck pond then. Do they bite cos I might encounter one on me nocturnal swims! Hugs Mrs a.
