It's spring, the sun is shining, the trees are blossoming and our thoughts turn to weddings. Don't you just love weddings? So much happiness makes everyone else feel happy too! I've designed a card for my friend's sister, who is getting married this weekend, and come up with a great gift idea with a personal touch.
This beautiful linen bound photograph/scrapbook album, tied up with some of the Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon makes a wonderful gift and presenting the album with a photo of the happy couple before they were married adds a personal touch. An informal picture taken on holiday perhaps, or at their engagement party if they had one, would be very much appreciated. The albums come in two sizes: the smaller one contains page protectors which can hold pages or photos 6"x6" (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm); the larger one holds pages/photos 12"x12" (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm). The smaller one costs £13.95, the larger one £20.95 - just send me an email if you'd like to order one.
The card was made by matting a strip of Sweet Pea designer paper onto a larger strip of Chocolate Chip card stock. I folded some of the Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon, using Snail adhesive to secure each fold, and centred it on the panel. I topped that with a scalloped square punched from Chocolate chip card stock and popped up on dimensionals, then added the focal sentiment from Basic Phrases, framed with Hodge Podge hardware. (I adore this hardware set and it is such good value - for £23.25 you get an amazing 200 styled silver items!)
