A Wedding Card to match my exploding box!



As usual, everything has got to pot here, all getting prepared for the Wedding at the weekend and Amelia came home from school yesterday afternoon with a really bad upset tummy! SO, I lost another day's work today(and pay) and my "schedule" has gone out the window. Jack's stomach came out in sympathy this morning so I have two very grumpy, irratable children at home to "HELP" me catch up on everything!

Luckily I had prepared most of the Wedding card yesterday, it just needed inking, sticking, and attacking with metallic rub-ons etc......so thankfully, it is now done and sitting on the side with it's little matching exploding box as the Liquid pearl flower centres on the inside of the card dries out!






A very simple card- I replicated the basic design on the inside to include a personalised greeting.


I took added inspiration from the latest challenge over at BasicGrey Challenges- Clean and Simple.

I used scraps of Basic Grey to cut layers of the Tattered Flower, then backed more BG paper onto card and cut the little hearts using a Sizzix die. I believe the papers to be scraps of BG Two Scoops- Dreamsicle???? Perhaps someone could confirm if you can still see the paper design underneath all the ink and metallic rub-ons I have used!!


Well, it's time for a light lunch with my fragile tummied children, then I may TRY to make the most of an unplaned, unpaid day off by making another card...or two!!
