Blog candy poll results and wedding card

The blog candy poll results were 13 votes for seperate candy to allow many people to win a little candy, and 2 votes for one person to win all candy.

So the 13 win, I will begin posting little candies for your delectation begining with ribbons. I thought I had a photo ready but it was out of focus, so I will have to open the unopened pack and photograph it again - I have organised the first pack and I am not unorganising them again!

Here is the wedding card I made recently, and I took the colours from the invite so I hope they liked it.

The card is ivory pearlescent and lilac pearlescent.
I cut the aperture with a Nestabilities scalloped heart die, and the bride and groom dress and suit are also a Spellbinder's die which cuts and embosses. I layered up the suit but I think I should have made the bow tie lilac too.
I backed the aperture with acetate to support the bridal outfits which are hanging from the bow from the same die, and the "hangers" are coloured with a gold Krylon pen to make them look metallic. The fancy corners are a Cuttlebug die, the sentiment is stamped on vellum and there are lilac heart gems.

Inside the card is lined with lilac card that shows through the aperture, there is a matching envelope to hold our wedding gift of money tied with matching ribbon. The sentiment stamped on vellum on the inside left is a Basic Grey set, the sentiment on the right inside is Rubbadubbadoo.
I covered the glue dots with ribbon roses, and there is one on the front too. Finally I added some self patterned ribbon to match which ties at the back. Is that a bit over the top?


  1. Gorgeous card, Cazzy.
    I love how you used the hangers, beautiful details and papers too!
