Special Day

We have a wedding coming up in a few weeks. The bride is my mother's cousin's daughter, don't quite know what relation that makes me. Anyway, I've really wanted to have a proper go using my Cuttlebug embossing folders, up to now I've only used the Swiss dots, which I love.

Lately, I have seen a few cards using two of the folders, one for the top and a different one for the bottom, which I think is really effective, so I decided to have a go. I had to choose between the Floral Fantasy and the Perfectly Paisley for the top of the card, and because the Floral Fantasy has a few hearts dotted about I thought it would be the one best suited for a wedding.

It took a couple of attempts to get them embossing on the same side and not to flatten the section I'd already done, but hey presto, in the end it worked. Overall I'm really pleased with the result, I do love these embossing folders.

The rose I've attached was made from instructions given in the gallery of a do-craft member, Gizmo. They are made using several layers of paper cut from a daisy punch. They are really effective and fun to do, so many thanks to Gizmo for the idea.

I tried several times to take a decent picture of the card, but think it's time for a better camera, as the pictures all came out a bit blurry. (I don't think the O/H will replace the one I have just to take pictures of my cards though, lol.) Well, this is the best of a bad bunch. Hope you get the picture.
