Pop up box card for a Las Vegas wedding …

Hi and welcome to my blog.

It’s been a very exciting time for my daughter and her husband recently – they’ve been to their friends’ wedding in Las Vegas! I was asked to make something special for the happy couple so I chose a pop up box card …

Pop up box cards certainly have the wow factor, like the one I made a few years back for my husband for our silver wedding anniversary, so I knew this was the type of card I would make – all I had to do was decide on the design. From what I’ve been told, both the bride and groom loved it.

The good thing is that this dimensional card folds flat to fit inside a normal sized envelope, but once opened, it pops up to reveal the surprise.  The panel at the back gave ample space for a greeting to be added.

I loved making this one – it was great fun to do. Hope you like it.

Apothecary art and stippled blossoms wedding card …

Hi and welcome to my blog.

I’m so sad to see the apothecary art and stippled blossoms stamp sets on Stampin’ Up’s retiring list – they are so beautiful, and they make pretty cards too.

Before they disappear, I made a wedding card with both of them…

The bride chose an English country garden theme for the wedding, so these pretty floral blossoms were just right for the card …

Some layering with the labels collection framelits, which co-ordinate with the apothecary art set…
