and here it is with it's very pretty matching box...
That doublesided Papermania PP is gorgeous, with a gold shimmery motif. I'd originally intended this for christmas projects! Embellies are all dug out from my wedding project stash.
Oh,the nightmare I had making boxes - I had a confused-dot-com moment or three!
First I made the square box too small.
Then I made the next box and ended up with two bases. And I'd used up quite a lot of time and Cosmo Cricket paper decorating it...and I'd used very strong glue on said decorating...So it all went in the bin and I started again!
Lesson learned - make a template for your card and write the measurements down!
So without further ado, here's my favourite...(you may need to sit down, it's so gorgeous LOL)
Cue drum roll...
and the second box that I made. I checked the card fit before I decorated this time!
Now just catch your breath there!
And at a funny angle to see the shimmer I added to the flowers, the bride's veil and the groom's cravat (sp?) I know it hasn't photographed that well - just use your imagination at how much more lovely everything looks with bling!
And of course, with my usual last minute fiddling with cards, I added a little charm to the ribbon.
As you've probably gathered, I love this Whiff of Joy stamp. I had to await it coming back in stock - I even bought extra, extra stamps in case it didn't come back in stock! LOL
I used the 'Happy ever after' Cosmo Cricket papers, some SU 'So Saffron' designer paper.
The couple are stamped and coloured with Copics (sorry, didn't write down what colours I used). I then masked the image and stamped 'French Script' (SU) in gold. Shape cut and embossed with Nesties, rub-ons used for the greeting..
The label shapes at the bottom and on the box were cut with my new toy - Cuthbert Cricut!
I tried the image with flower soft over the garland - I'd seen it done on a couple of blogs and it looked lovely. Not at all keen on the effect on my attempt though - currently that's in the reject pile!
Go 0n, have a cuppa now, that was such a long post, I'm sure you're exhausted!
