Love is in the air! & OSCC DT call

Just recently I have had requests for 5 wedding cards... love certainly is in the air.
It began with this one for a friend from my choir, whose son is getting married as you can see on June 11th. Having the date on the card was a special request.
Next was the wedding which I myself attended last weekend. I didn't manage to take a picture of that card as I finished it practically as we were walking out of the door to leave for the wedding. It was a similar design to this one, but was in ivory and had a Mr & Mrs stamp in the corner instead of names or initials.
This one and the following one are for a friend to give to some of her fellow teachers. This one utilises the letterpress technique with an Impressabilities stencil. I dabbed it with silver ink before embossing. I love the effect it makes.The very last one was made following an emergency call last night from a friend from the gym, who will be attending a wedding this evening!It uses the same Impressabilities stencil , but this time without ink as I used a lovely pearlescent paper.
So instead of just one DT card for One Stop Craft's Wedding card challenge this week, here we have 4!
Charisma Cardz and C.R.A.F.T. also have wedding themes this week. SO these are for them too!
I have been in Bath babysitting for a couple of days, hence the lack of blogging or crafting. My daughter is setting up her own HR Consultancy business and is quite busy at the moment and so requires the services of Granny!
Shelley has decided to increase the size of the DT at OSCC, so head over to the blog for details!

  10. You have a prize-winning formula there Chrissie - these cards are so elegant and classy - I especially like the letterpress one! I like the letterpress effect myself and you've accomplished it beautifully!
    Thank you so much for coming over to play at C.R.A.F.T this week!

  11. Wow Chrissie - these are stunning - and inspirational - I am going to a wedding next week - and also making the order of service cards - I totally love the fact that they are all one colour/two colour max and the detail is in the embossing and shapes...
