RSVP My Friend

This post is to show you two cards I had to make for two friends, but for two very different reasons.

This first card is an RSVP for a very dear friend's wedding.  She's not a girlie girl, doesn't like OTT fuss and the invites she sent out were handmade - so the pressure was on lol.  I've been looking for an excuse to ink up these Lavinia Stamps for ages, they are just devine.  I must get more of these lovely stamps.

I stamped the Fairy Bridge stamp with Momento Black and matted it twice onto a deep maroon card.  I then mounted it with foam pads.  The dandelion clock stamp has also been stamped in Momento Black.  The tips of the clock and the ripples on the water have been touched lightly with perfect pearls and then Glimmer Dusted to add a touch of sparkle.

I used a very similar card (minus the glitter) for a male 60th Birthday card.  And I'm thinking I could use a version of this as a sympathy card.

The second card was a card I made for my very dear friend on the Isle of Lewis when we left.  I gave the card to her with a lovely framed piccie of the kids and a pair of white gold and diamond stud earrings.

The image is Little Girls Storytime, LOTV and coloured with Promarkers.  I've used Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the image and then overstamped the corners with a flourish stamp using walnut Stain Ink.  The DP is from Crafty Bits and the poem is from an old HOTP Scrapbooking Pack I found at the bottom of a drawer, long forgotten about.

Until next time, thanks for looking, Nicola xxx
