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

Folded Christmas tree card


It's Karen's turn to set the challenge for the Christmas Card Club and she asked us to make a card that included a teabag/origami folded topper. This was indeed a challenge for me! I played around with a few ideas, but then settled on making a teabag folded tree following this Youtube link.

All papers, including the gold foiled vellum beneath the tree were all from my Christmas offcuts box and the stars were from Poundland. I inked the bottom edges of the tree sections with a copic pen.


The fold foiling on the vellum doesn't show up there, but you get some idea of what it looks like from this close up on a section:
