To Have and to Hold

Good afternoon all!
I`ve been playing with my dies again, this time I`ve made a wedding card.
I found a pearlescent card in my stash that I bought years ago and it screamed wedding card to me so I just had to go along with it.
I found a piece of ivory pearlescent card in the scrap box and cut it out with a Spellbinders Lace Doily Motifs die.
Another scrap of the pink, yes it is pink IRL but looks a bit salmony on here, stamped with a sentiment from Joanna Sheen and embossed in silver detail EP then cut out with a nestie square.
Both die cuts are raised with foam pads
I`ve added a bow which in reality is the same shade as the card, and some decorative pins.

Edited to add; I`m entering this card into the new In the Pink challenge. Thanks Sylvia Ann for reminding me.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  7. Hello

    I stumbled across your blog. Always a pleasure seeing another crafter getting pleasure from what they do.

    I sometimes make my own Christmas cards, I make lino cuts and print them on my old hand press

    Im'e a gilder and use gold leaf and imitation gold leaf rather a lot.

    Have you thought of gilding onto paper?

    It's really quite easy to gild onto paper, there are now modern gold sizes that are simple to use, and there are various ways to create antique and distressed finishes as well., like the crackle glaze and antique glaze.

    If you have a moment, pop over to my site, there is quite a lot about gilding onto paper, in particular there is an old bookbinders recipe which you can use to make really authentic looking imitation vellums and parchment papers from ordinary papers.

    Good luck to us all.

  13. Hello there fellow Pink lover. Isn't it fabulous about the launch of In the Pink? I stopped in for a closer look at your card. I'm linked at #1 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

    Lynne, this is so beautiful. I saw it originally in my google reader and thought exactly the same thing, it needs to be entered into In the Pink. Glad you did. Love that bow.
