Hi Everyone.

Here’s the Wedding Card I made for our niece Vicky and her husband Tom.

It’s a STAR CARD.This is quite a long post because there’s quite a few pictures.

Front Page…The words were computer generated and the corners cut with Tonic dies.

Vicky wedding card 8Page 2…The pop out heart and borders were cut with Tonic dies and punches.The bells and champagne glasses were stamped and embossed in silver. The words again computer generated

Vicky wedding card 7Page 3….The Mr & Mrs pop out were again cut with Tonic dies and the bride & groom were cut with a quik cutz die and paper pieced.

Vicky wedding card 6Page 4…Again I’ve used tonic dies and punches to create the pop out and the borders and spellbinders dies for the heart with the text on. The little roses have been stamped.

Vicky wedding card 4Page 5…Tonic dies for the pop out and the side panels have been embossed on an old embossing board. I’ve die cut some hearts, added some flowers and hung some rings inside the pop out.

I’ve been meaning to put this card on for ages, well, actually since July, that’s when our daughter Nicole’s birthday was. Oh well better late than never!!!!!!

It’s a star card and please be patient as there’s a lot of piccies as I want to show you each page…..

…firstly here’s how it looks when it’s open, hence it’s name, Black, red and white are some of her favourite colours…

 ….and here’s the first page, Nicole aged 1 day awwwwwww, the punch I’ve used is a Martha Stewart, I think it’s called double loop…


…18 months, enjoying an icecream…

…4 years old, dressed as Tinkerbell…

….aged 8, she never liked this hair cut….

…Nicole on her prom day, absolutely gorgeous!!!!!…

I’ve used a Tim Holtz sissix die for the letters and numbers and nesties to cut out the photos and frames.

Here’s the front , when it’s closed…

…and here’s the back.

Lastly, the box it went in, it was made out of some Stampin Up 12×12 speciality paper. The words are computer generated and cut out with nesties.

Thanks or looking and your patience 😀

Chloe is my son’s girlfriend, therefore I’ve made her two cards, one from me , Anton( my hubbie), Nicole and Adam and one from David.

For David I made this Star Card, I really love how this turned out!!! It’s called a star card because that what it looks like from the top when it’s opened.


Here’s piccies of each page, there are 5 altogether, each has a letter on it that spells out her name, so here’s C, the heart has been suspended on a strip of acetate.


Here’s H, again more acetate strips for the butterflies, which have been stamped and embossed onto vellum.


Here’s L


Here’s O, yet more acetate. Can you imagine how much these butterflies and hearts just float around on the pages?


Here’s E, all the corners on the card are punched with a Whale of a punch available at Stampeezee. My friend Mandy bought me this one, A BIG THANKS Manders( aren’t I a lucky girl)

Her’s a piccie of the front and back.


This is the box I made for it to go in, it’s folded out of 12×12 papers.


Apparently Chloe thought it was awesome!!!!


This is the card I made from the rest of us.


Here’s a side view, the phone is an Arty Farty template, it moves up and down.

 Sorry for the lack of blogging this week but busy busy busy, Well I’m off to Marlene’s to pick up some punches she got me from America, Whoo Whoo I’m sooooo excited. I’m suprised I got this post finished first!!!!

Let me know what you think of the cards your comments a much appriciated, Thanks.
