On Your Wedding Day
Here is my second attempt at die cutting.
I wrote this poem and others for family weddings and have been encouraged to sell them on Etsy. Hope it appeals to you and encourages others to put pen to paper.
I used a 5” x 7” white card, layered it with gold mirri and hammered cream card.
Printed my poem from Microsoft Word onto white glossy paper, then die cut it using
Creative Dies Plus - largest oval die.
Punched two gold and two cream flowers, flat glued them together, alternating colours,off setting them and placing crystal gem in the middle. Die cut swirls and love hearts for embellishments.
Used a cream insert, deckle edged it, topped it with smaller oval die cut congratulations sentiment, finishing with swirls and hearts.
I plan to do more in other colour combinations.
Special thanks again to Christina for all her fabulous teaching, inspiration, ideas and never ending encouragement. Lots of Love, Frances xx
