LIM White on White Take 3......

Yes I'm back again and yes DIVA LIM I take back my hate comment unreservedly, I think I actually LOVE white on white now :-)  You can give me lines if I complain again ;-)

This wasn't something I intended to do in white at all.  I'm going to make the wedding invites for my husbands friend and his wife to be but they haven't really got an idea of what they want so I said I'd mock up a few ideas.  With all the playing I'd be doing on the cricut with the pearly white card this morning, I just thought it would work so well as a wedding invite (although she's not going for white so it might morph into cream on cream or something similar but at least this was a good place to start for ideas.)


I started with the carnation flower - which is handmade.    I learnt how to make them last Sunday at the papercraft show and they are super easy - you just need a circular scalloped punch, a brad and a water spritzer.  [Edit Sunday - here is a quick tutorial on how to make them as requested]  However, as easy as they are, I'm not sure I'm going to fancy making them over 200 times if they pick this design....  I'll have to make sure the other designs are a bit more easy to assemble!   I cut the flourishes from the same cindy loo cartridge on my cricut in the same pearly card and cut the nestie label in the same card before stamping and embossing the "you're invited" onto it with an opaque white powder (shows better IRL than I can get the photograph to show here today with the awful light thanks to the rubbish weather).  I cut a strip of white card and a matching strip of stripey vellum and wrapped a sheer white edged ribbon around it et voila!

I'm also going to enter this into the "wedding challenge" over at die cut dreams http://diecutdreams.blogspot.com/2011/04/die-cut-dreams-challenge-88-wedding.html

Right, that is definitely it for me today - got to get ready to go out this evening as we're off to see the mighty Daniel Kitson at the Crucible - he's so amazingly funny we see him every time he's here.

Have a good weekend
