a Howarts Wedding card

I am so excited to be sharing this card, I never thought I would have the opportunity to make a Harry Potter wedding card, so when the opportunity came up I decided that this should be a very special card. It took a lot of planning, and a lot of tweaking, but I was determined to find a way to make this big castle fold into a card. It turned out much better than expected and I am pleased to share how I did it with you.

World Travelling Wedding Wishes

I made this card a few weeks ago as a request for a friend. She needed a wedding card for her brother and his soon to be wife with a traveling theme. I had to ponder this one for a bit as I wasn’t quite sure what to do and how to make this a personalized card. Then I happened to look across my craft room at a book shelf and there it was, an Atlas that had sat on a shelf, unused for at least 20 years, I’m not even sure how hold it even is, my hubby is guessing 30ish. I thought long and hard before I started ripping pages out as I love books, I have always taken care of my books and part of my brain had a hard time committing to taking this one apart. I texted my friend and told her what I was considering and asked if there was any special places that she had in mind, well she passed on where they were, living, where they got engaged, places they have been and places they were planning on going so I made the decision and this is what I came up with.

Wedding Wishes-design challenge C4C493

Happy Saturday, and today for the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge we have a design challenge. I needed to make a wedding card a few weeks back so I thought this design for this challenge would make a pretty card so I have been patiently waiting to post this card. I really love this colour combo, I actually had some of my supplies still sitting out after making this card so I used some of the same products to make last weeks Christmas in July card.

This is the design for this weeks challenge

Roses are Red, and Pink— Tribute to Joanne

This is a special post, this post is part of a blog hop that is in tribute to Joanne Grzelak, she was a member of the Crazy4Challenges blog group before I was asked to join, and even though I didn’t get the privilege to know her personally after viewing some of her work I felt I’d like to pay my respects to this very talented lady by joining in this blog hop. We had a few options to choose from and I chose to use one of her cards as inspiration to make my card. After looking through her blog I found this card that she posted on Saturday, May 9, 2015, that she named “The Crazies Appreciate Teachers”

This is my take on Joanne’s Card

Tri-foldWedding Card-C4C490

Today is Crazy 4 Challenges day and this weeks challenge is to create a Tri-fold card, it has to have at least 2 folds and 3 panels, and this is what I came up with, it’s kind of a gatefold card with a panel on the left and the right when closed makes a border at the top and the bottom.
