The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Hello All

Here we have another two examples of the wedding invitation collection that I made for my nephew's wedding coming up in August. These two examples, both with more of a masculine flavour are made with Charlie Petallic Cardstock for the bases - Petallic cardstock is a metallic cardstock with a bit of a shimmer to it and it is rather thick which is a good choice for higher end cards; it is an excellent choice for more sophisticated cards such as formal invitations. On the base of the card I used two selections of pattern paper from the Jolie Chocolat collection put out by SEI. The large pattern design is the embossed paper called Sucre and the finer design pattern is called Noisette and is a glimmer paper with a bit of a sheen to it. I used gray and brown cardstocks to matt any panels I used. I embellished these cards again with Spellbinders dble pendants, the Fluer De Lis and Contemporary Hearts and then I topped that with Spellbinders circles, one in scallop to mat the other with the sentiment on it. The sentiment is from Just Rite 15/8" round Romantic Sentiments and Borders and there are many sentiments that would work in that set for wedding invitations or wedding cards to gift any bride and groom. I hope you enjoy this card and feel free to leave me any comments or questions. There are a few more wedding invites to post yet so stay tuned... thanks for looking.
