Even more DIY Wedding card ideas

Yes, that’s right…we are full of ideas when it comes to Weddings….take a look at these, but this time, instead of just Feature frames, we’ve used another of our incredibly popular products….


This first card uses the ELEGANCE ornate frames. We kept them white, but remember, you can colour these so easily with spray or ink, or even stamps.

This next card uses a base of cardstock just under the frame itself – so pretty. This one reminds me a of a beach Wedding.

Inspiration from Melinda

Posted on

As some of you may know I am on the Creative Team at Flying Unicorn.  Flying Unicorn are major sponsors to the challenge site – CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration! So for the month of May the Creative Team have been invited to be Special Detectives. I was given this Case File No. and couldn’t wait to add lots of MH flowers to my layout.


The Case File looks like this:



My take on this challenge :

“Hello Little One”

Sigh…I am still scrapping birth photos of my little boy from 8 months ago…wonder if I will ever catch up!

I am using a mixture of papers here…some really old Sass for my base paper, Maggie Holmes Crate paper and Jodie Lee Prima papers.

Lots of gorgeous flowers from Manor House which have all been altered in different ways and the “Love” Chipboard is from 2Crafty which I have covered in a few different colours from Shimmerz.



My Testimony….I used the Inspiration word “Wish” as a stepping point for my journalling.  Don’t you just love the new “Felt Doilies”.. I have used a gorgeous pink one from the Beautiful You Collection as part of my layers behind my photo.





Evidence:  Butterflies, Flowers (of course!) Swirls, Watercolour Effect, Bokeh Effect on Photo & Tiny Brads

Products Used:

Vinettes – Pink
Floral Mix – Arielle
Frilly Roses – Beetroot
Mini Roses – Pink
Gelato – Cherry
Cutie Pies – Orange
Felt Doilies – Pink
