Wedding Wishes

In between the box card extravaganza last week I made a couple of wedding cards, one for some friends and another for a commission (sorry the pic is slightly off centre!).

This stamp is 'Huge Mr & Mrs' from Woodware and I have very much taken my inspiration from Francoise Read's example in the current catalogue.

I've stamped the words on white card, then on 2 different papers so I could paper piece.

The dark paper is actually from a Christmas pack but only has gold swirls and hearts on.  The lighter paper is from a paper mania pack.

Where the letters overlap I have coloured with copics.

There are several smaller sayings in the set - 'You've tied the knot' I have stamped underneath and 'Wedding Wishes' on a separate little tag that is added with a bow.

Main image added to a couple of matching layers, which are also reflected on the base card (A5 size).

A few gems and punched hearts to finish.


  1. Gosh that really is a large stamp - like what you've done with it especially the other words added and the paper piecing.

  2. This is lovely Jill - especially love the paper piecing; it's so effective. I'm hoping my catalogue will arrive soon as I signed up for it at Taunton.
