White on white Wedding Invites

I was asked to give a Bride to be some ideas on wedding invites, etc. I came up with this elegant style white on white card with matching place cards.
Her colour is purple so we went for a small purple gem in the centre of the flower.

What do you think?

Triangular Favor Boxes

Thought I would show you a Favour Box I made using items from Craft all Day
We now have these Triangular Favour boxes in stock. They are ready for you to assemble. We suggest our Stix 2 tape as it is really strong.. The boxes are pre-scored and come in China White. You can emboss, distress, stamp etc these boxes to suit your occasion.

These will make perfect Wedding Favours filled with sweets etc. Or why not use it as a gift box with chocolates or jewellery?

The above photo is just to give you a bit of inspiration.
 Items used
Don't forget, if you purchase anything from us send us a photo of what you did with them and we will put it on the blog.

Distressing and embossing

I was asked by my daughter to make  a card for a girl who is leaving work.

Instead of the usual "cute" image I decided on a completely different look. I embossed with white embossing powder several of the floral aspects then stamped them again with Adirondack inks.

I used my new "Word Play" TH die to cut out the letters.
I hope she will like it. I enjoyed making this card and will definitely be making more
