Lately I have been busy lately with custom orders. I am not complaining because they are one of my favourite things to do. I get to create something really unique and tailored and because they are usually one-off's I get to go to town so to speak !
This was definitely the case with a wedding card I was recently asked to create. The client is a glass artisan and creates stunning modern pieces of art made out of glass. I recommend you check out her site and see for yourself! Needless to say, I wanted to make something just as stunning and eye catching for her.
I created the patterned paper myself by punching out various hearts and pasting them down. I then embossed a pattern onto it to give some texture. Boy did it take some time sticking and fitting all those hearts together! It was worth it though as I love the end result. I heat embossed two hearts, added some gorgeous satin ribbon, glitter brads and glitter paper, and here's the finished creation...
I also handmade an envelo-box to put it in. It's a hybrid box/envelope so the embellishments don't get crushed.
Now I have another custom order Wedding card to make, but this time it's blue. I'll post photos once I've made it. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
