Wedding card fifties style

Or rather twenties. I’m not good with years. I only got a feeling of old times when we got this wedding invitation.Daqadoodles150925vr140028122b

In case of birth announcements or wedding invitations I like to give a card in the same style. So for this card I used the same colour palette (with an added warm copper colour as they have sepia in the picture). After their wedding they would go on a honeymoon to Cuba. Her weddingdress was a fifties style dress, looked great! Totally not as on the card ;). Ofcourse I made this card way in advance and on time. (NOT! – probably was a day or two before…)

Oh wauw I only just noticed that now it kind of looks like she has a bare bottom! I’ll just say it only looks that way on the pictures, not IRL…

Bronze distress stickles as glittery accents and that pearl powder from ranger. Bronze coloured as well.

Quite pleased with the result, it matched their invitation quite well (while not knowing the exact timeframe of their invitation).

New year cards

This year I wanted to make it a bit easier and use patterned paper with some diecuts. I liked the “twelve days of christmas”  paper/series of Do Crafts Papermania and Xcut embossing folders and cutting dies. So I bought the 12×12″  paper and cut it up in squares. And then I found out that an A4 size paper doesn’t fit for a card then – the 6×6″ is just a bit too big to make a card slightly bigger. So matting the paper wasn’t possible. It was also a challenge to find envelopes.

Anyway, here is my series of cards. There are a few that are not related to the 12 days of Christmas series at all, and some cards aren’t finished yet still (Maybe next year…)

Many of the cards laid out. I made a few more as this wasn’t yet enough.
