A mini vinage style winter wedding card and box set ..........

I based this vintage style mini card project on the sketch over at Papertake Weekly - please pop over and take a look at the wonderful cards made by the design team

This winter wedding card and box set is for Clare and Joseph who are being  married on Friday.  The card is a vintage style mini card using a portion of a LOTV die cut on kraft background.

I went overboard with embellishments and used ivory tulle and white crazy mesh to compliment the bride's veil on the die cut, a die cut swirl and a beautiful diamante snowflake stick pin.

I wanted to use pale pink pure silk ribbon but it was too wide for my mini 4 inch card, so I hit on the idea of twisting it - it worked a treat, then I added dusky rose tiny ric rac, some cream cotton  lace and some mulberry flowers which were distressed with tea dye ink.  The background papers were all machine stitched to kraft card.

Because this is for a wedding I went to town on the box and tried to make it very pretty so it would be kept for a long time.  Mulberry rose, silk ribbon,  etc plus clear crystal Zva swirl with a little kraft tag.

To the inside of the card I added this lovely passage from Corinthians which begins 'Love is patient, love is kind .....
 I wish Clare and Joseph all of God's many blessings and a lifetime of happiness

Lace, silk ribbon, Zva crystals, diamante stick pin, ric rac, tulle, crazy mesh and mulberry flowers are all from Ribbon Girl
I am enterng this card into Totally Gorjuss challenge 'for someone special'

See you soon, MaryG x
