Mum ! Can you make me ....


Hi Everybody,

This must be a  plea that most of us have heard on a regular basis ... and this one came from my youngest daughter two days before we were going away on our train adventure.

She wanted a wedding card in rose pink with flowers, glitter and a matching box ... so not much there then !!

So here is what I created for her to give to her friends on their wedding day and I hope they liked it.

The ribbon is wired and makes beautiful bows

The dies I have used are from the Californian Collection by Sue Wilson

I got all mine from  JGDCrafts   They are a UK company but they will ship around the world

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and they have a wonderful selection to choose from

They have been sparkled with Glitter Magic

I made the box to compliment the card and added the ribbon around it ... both bows have a diamante and pearls sparkler in the centres

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  1. Love the card - the ribbon makes just makes it so different. My Sister celebrated her 60th birthday yesterday so I had to make,not only my card for her but another for our 91yr old Mother to give her. I did a vintage styled 'star' card with matching box for Mum and I gave her a pop-up slider card with butterflies with matching envelobox and giftbag. It's nice to make something really special.

  11. Good morning Christina,
    I have the same cry from my only daughter on a regular basis. What a nice colour scheme though and the fact that you have personalised it for them makes it extra special.

  20. I love the idea of the matching box for the card. I have made presentation boxes for my other art love and I think boxes for cards, especially ones that you put soo much work into, is a wonderful idea. Thank you.

  29. Christina,
    Amazing set. Those Sue Wilson dies are so gorgeous. You did print your sentiment prior to cutting it with a die...correct? The ribbon is the perfect compliment to your roses.

  35. Absolutely gorgeous. I love that dusty rose color. I hope the friends told your daughter how much they loved the card and box, so she was able to pass that along to you. It does the ole heart good to know that you've pleased someone..and that someone appreciates the time and effort it takes to make these things. Your followers definitely appreciate your talent.
