Claire, one of my train buddies, has yet again commissioned me to create a card for her. This time it was a card to give to her sister when she got married last Saturday 22nd September.
I was quite excited when she gave me the design brief as all the colours were the same as my own sister's wedding back in 2006. I practically had a design in my head before I even got hold of a pencil to sketch an idea!!
I promised myself that I would learn to do something new this year & I decided to have a go at chiffon flowers.They always look classy.
I must admit I tried several techniques before I settled on the one I loved most. I die cut the petals using my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die & then gently heated the edges over a tea light to give them the curled look. I was very lucky to find just the right shades of chiffon in our local Poundland too!!!

The pearls stitched into the flower centre were given to me by Claire.
I also made a keepsake box so her sister has somewhere to put it after her big day using french vanilla bazzill cardstock & filled it with tissue.
Inside the card I place patterened vellum & a paer insert stamped.
I'm quite proud of this one!
