Diamond Wedding Card

Todays task was a Diamond Wedding card........This is where my cuttlebug machine came into its own,i really enjoyed playing around with colours,designing with butterflies,flowers and backgrounds.

First i decided to have the main colours silver and lilac,and keep these colours going through the theme,with a deep purple layering for the outside edge of the layer's.

I proceeded to do all my diecuts first using,my flower and butterfly embossing folders,and just one diecut for the shadowing the butterflies...........

I dont know what you call this fold i did for the actual card,maybe concertina,so using silver card for this,then layering silver and lilac panels on the inside as well ,I then layered the flower embossed lilac piece on the inside at an angle,to attach the poem.

On the front outside panel,which is layered the same,I attached the butterflies,oops forgot to say I embossed this panel with a embossing board. In the center I stuck two large faux diamonds in between the lilac silk flowers,they dont show up to good here,but look very impressive haha.

The hardest part was making a box to put this card in,but managed fine with my boxmaker,I bought recently, from Crafters Companion, its the Top Score multiboard.

There is a saying a "workman is only as good as the tools he uses",or something like that,Its sooooo true.other than pulling it all together design wise lol.

Poppies Stamped !

One of my favorite rubber stamps,just had to try this one out !
Using red cardstock and folded it gateways(like an opening in the middle)
I made the background of the poppy panels with my homemade inks,vintage colours,sprayed with gold so it sparkles.
Then layered up, stamped the poppy image onto that,then using some square silver card i had already.... stamped the butterflies onto same background as poppies,cut out and just stuck the middle of them so the wings stand up.
used peeloff's round edges of the red card.
The middle part i punched holes and used little hole'd stud's forget the name of them.
i shall change the black ribbon with red chiffon when i find some lol.
I dont know whether it works,but i enjoyed creating it !
