Boxed Wedding Card

Today I am showing off a stunning wedding card

The card itself was actually made by my friend KATIE using her Grand Calibur machine with Go Kreate cutting dies
 (Sorry I have mis-informed you, this was done using the GRAND NESTABILITIES- thanks for correcting me Katie)

Katie has these easel cards down to a fine art now - which is just as well as I needed a card and was bogged down with other orders.

So the base card was given to me all put together - that is the white card and pink patterned paper pages including the verse and a stopper, with a pretty pink ribbon down the centre spine

All that was left for me to do now was organise the flowers!

As the wedding is on Pink & White I used flowers in both colours

I just couldn't decide whether I should show the flower stalks or remove them altogether - decisions decisions!!!

From nowhere it came to me to actually bind white satin ribbon around the doubled up stalks which made it resemble a wedding bouquet, and I added another piece of the same ribbon with two tails just hanging.

In my ribbon box I found some pull bow ribbon which luckily was in a pink iridescent shade so I made the loopy bow and attached to the top of the pink ribbon spine and left the 2 tails dangling to the bottom of the card

Soft white tissue paper was rolled at the top and bottom of the box to create a frame for the card - I think it worked well - don't you?

The card has been safely delivered to the bride to be ready for her big day on Friday 22n July

Many many thanks to Katie for saving the day yet again!!!!
