Wedding Card

Here's a wedding card I made for Craftwork Cards. The shaped card base is one of theirs - their blank cards are lovely, such a good weight, this one is BIG - about 8"
All the papers, labels, flowers and sentiments are CWC as well. White is so appropriate for wedding cards, and I love making them. The label sentiment looks crooked in the photo, it isn't, just the angle that I photographed it.

The 'brads' in the centre of the flowers are card candy, little domes of silver cardstock you just stick on
We are looking after a friend's dog, he's quite an old chap now, but the sweetest dog. He is devoted to Mike and follows him everywhere. Mike was out last night, and Jake was really restless, he paced around the study, paced around the hall, paced around the kitchen. I gave him water, let him out...............still pacing. He came and paced as I was making a couple of cards, and eventually gave a great sigh and flopped down. Thank goodness, I thought, and carried on working. Then it popped into my head 'OMG what if he's dead!'. So I stamped my foot a few inches from his head, the poor thing leapt to his feet and resumed his pacing. When Mike came home Jake immediately flopped onto his bed and fell asleep - he obviously thought 'thank heavens I can relax now that the mad woman who always has a pair of scissors in her hand and stamps her feet isn't in charge of me...........

  2. This is a beautiful wedding card!! Doesn't surprise me...you do such beautiful work!! And your story about restless & depressed Jake is just too funny. We've had dogs all our lives and they definitely have their own personality and quirks. Just don't let him see you with a pair of scissors anymore during his stay!!!

  28. Poor old guy... he was protecting you. Well that's what I think. When Mike got home... he could leave the protection to him.

  29. OMGosh Enfys! This is so beautiful! I've always loved the white on white with just a touch of silver look! Love the Jake story. Reminds me of a country song about a dog called Feed Jake.
    I actually crafted and posted on my blog. Maybe you could swing by.
