The Monkey is mounted on white and green cardstock which has been cut with nesties and the edges inked, the strip of white underneath has also had its edges inked and been run through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder.

Wedding Invites




I have spent all afternoon making some wedding invites for an order. I have made a pocket card the cream card is embossed on my cuttlebug , the gold insert is an antique gold colour in real life all though it looks much more metalic in the picture I bought it from this fab ebay seller who was really helpful I also got matching envelopes from the same seller. The cream square on the insert is cut with nelly snellen dies and then I have cut a heart outof the gold card and embossed it. The ribbon is from my local haberdashery shop and the gold charms were from ebay. The writing on the back was printed on the computer and cut out using my nesties on the cuttlebug.
