Hi again, this is my one of my family christmas cards, i thought that i better make a start because i have so many to do, and although i was thinking about buying them all this year, i couldnt find any that met my expectations, so i had several ideas and this is one i came up with first. this is my take on a victorian feel and is all my design, i designed and cut the frame, used a victorian image, used lavish festive green sparkly ribbon and highlighted with red glittered flowers, sain ribbon, pearls and of course my favourite martha stewart punches, and victorian feel corners to finish. This is A4 in size and just need to make the insert now. will be making the rest hopefully this week, so will post them on as soon as i am finished.

Decided to add some extra flowers

Hi again all

Was asked to make a keepsake card for the grooms mum the colours requested were, silver, white and turquoise blue, which was hard to find, i made the topper myself and designed the book, this is nearly A4 in size so a lovely card size to keep, and hopefully should stand out from all the others, i try to accomodate all requests, she asked for white roses, which i have glittered as you never get a true white and i think that white on white especially off white really looks poor, so glittered them up to whiten them up, and again with the brides dress, as this looked cream to begin with. added loads of diamontes, ribbon, real ringing silver bells minature hearts, silver trim, coordinating corners and a oval sentiment, this will stand up on its own as there is a card attached to the back which acts as a stand also. i am going to make and dress the box today, so i will post that on as soon as i am finished. really got to get on with my christmas shopping as hardly done any at all and time is getting on. will post later

thanks all for looking please leave a comment by clicking on comments, would be nice to hear from you
