About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

A change of colour!!

Back again with the last of the trio of wedding cards. This time we had a change in colour - following the black and gold which they had used on the invitations.
I went back to Valeriane Digital and she didn't disappoint. This time I have used a combination of Wedding Gold and Damask in Black and White.

For matting and layering, I used some satin finish gold card, and matt black card. The largest butterfly is Spellbinders Wings of Hope, while the smaller ones are all Crafters's Companion Die'sire Essentials - Beautiful Butterflies. Each one has three layers - gold card, black paper and gold paper.
The sentiment was made on the computer and the mats and layers were cut with a combination of Spellbinder Ovals and CC Die'sire Essentials Ovals. Some gold ribbon and pearls finished the whole look. 

Back soon,

  1. Hi Carole just a wee note to say thankyou very much for the three beautiful wedding day cards for our daughter Emma on her wedding day. Our family and friends and farther afield wanted to know where did we get these stunning and unusual cards. I have passed on your website to everyone, I hope that wee tin box is overflowing with orders and money. Wishing you and your family every success for the future. X
