A Wedding Day card in Black, White & Silver

Hiya peeps

My inspirational blog post for today (and also my very first one) is about the fabulous and utterly
gorgeous Wedding  Ribbon selection available exclusively at Crafty Ribbons.

This is the link for all of the Wedding Ribbons available

The two I have used are:

Wedding Owl Ribbon - With Love Bridal White

Wedding Owl Ribbon - Wedding Day Bridal White

So overall the wording on the Wedding Day commission card I was asked to make reads:

"With Love On Your Wedding Day".  I was very pleased with myself for the unusual way that I made
the wording look... but silly for telling you!!! ;0 lol


White extra large DL card & envelope
Black with silver embossed floral flourishes cardstock
Silver plain mirror card stock
White glitter cardstock
Red cardstock
Plain white cardstock (for matting & layering behind the wedding couple die cut)
Wedding Couple Cutting Die from Cheery Lynn Designs called "Wedding Vows"
Joined Wedding Rings cutting die from Marianne Creatables
Horseshoe cutting die from All Occassion Dies (comes with a four leaf clover)
Assorted paper Butterflies and Flowers (from my own stash) sprayed with Silver Mist from Stamps Away
Large A4 foam pad from Affixit Craft (saves on so much time)

I hope you like this as much as my customer did, after all, she did choose the Black, White & Silver colour theme.

Orchid Love

Hi!  It's Laura here today sharing a layout I made for the Crafty Ribbons exhibition stand.

Let me walk you through my process...  India ink splatters in a few shades of pinky purple.  Pencil drawn circles and tissue paper circles along with stapled thread to build some background interest.  Fabric, felt and lace make up the main piece with my part matted photo, and the title stitched on top.  I added a few tabs and snippets of ribbon too...

I created a cluster at the bottom with tissue circles and the same ribbons too.

My Crafty Ribbons supplies are; lace, Swiss dot ribbon, heart ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
