A Perfect Day

The Papertake Weekly challenge is this sketch:

I actually started making the card a few weeks ago and I was suffering a little from knowing what to do with it until I saw the sketch! One of my cousins is getting married at the end of August (this will be the third Wedding we have been to in 6 weeks!) and my Mum asked me to make a card.

The base paper and panels are from Funky Hand - I Do! Word Book (you don't have to make a word book with the papers!), I've inked and rounded edges, then added the organza ribbon - a one sided bow so I could use a pearl headed pin! I added some seed beads to the top and bottom of the pin too.

And in the centre, I've added a die cut pearlescent Wedding cake, and again decorated it with seed beads.

The sentiment has been stamped with chestnut Whispers ink and is part of a freebie set from a magazine a while ago and I think it's Papermania. I think I'll get quite a bit of use out of this sentiment!

Just got my card to finish making before the Wedding - its all cut out and ready to be decorated - its actually a word book using the I Do! collection of papers. And if I remember to take a photo of it, I'll show it!
  • Printed papers: I Do! Download Wedding Word Book from Funky Hand
  • Sentiment: Papermania freebie stamp
  • Everything else: My stash
