Commissioned wedding card


I was asked to make an A4 size wedding day card using green. I remembered that some years ago I bought some lovely Carol Wilson papers and among them was the pagoda shape that I've used. I had to have several attempts to get the text the right size to fit the apertures, but when I was happy with it, I printed out on to an offcut of prima green paper. The background foiled card is Hunkydory, the flowers are Craftime and the silver ribbon from stash.

I know it looks odd, but please note that as I didn't want to show the names of the recipients I digitally used a distortion brush so they can't be seen. The actual names have been printed downwards in the two smaller spaces.


On the insert it says:
Wishing both of you love and happiness ever after
