Congratulations in Red

13 Oct

congratsredSome time ago I had a very “last minute” request for a wedding congratulations card. Sadly, with it being so late, I only had half of an evening to make a card – it’s not much time to plan and become creative (especially mid-week), but I knew I didn’t want to make a typical wedding card in white. I also decided that since the time was so short, I’d go for simplicity.


Love Song

28 Jul

lovesongSo, here comes another challenge-inspired card. I think it might be pretty addictive, as those challenges are very inspiring. This time polish website Craft-Szafa challenged participants to play a “romantic tune”.

I came across some white flowers in my endless stash and decided to use them before I forget again that I have them. I thought of a wedding card, but then I wanted something more “universal”: this card will work as a wedding congratulation, a card for a beloved one (are there any romantic guys who still give their girlfriends cards?) or even a birthday card for this romantic girl, who reads books and listens to classic music all the time.

And since Craft-Szafa asks for a banner of their challenge, here it goes:

Wedding Congratulations

1 Jul

wedding2I think it’s very easy to overdo a wedding congratulations card – a bit too much shiny or gold or silver and suddenly you find it too tacky and not elegant at all.

That’s why, even though I’m tempted to add more ornaments, I do try to stay on the “safe” side: simplicity side.

And in the end, it’s hard to go wrong with pure white adorned with a bit of gold (or silver), isn’t it?

Wedding Butterflies

13 Jun

I was asked by a soon-to-be-wife for “Thank you” cards she could give to bridesmaid and best man. The wedding’s theme was “lavender”, so I prepared two butterfly cards in purple. They are not in an exact lavender shade, but they do correspond with it. And the addition of white, with a bit of silver and pearls set up the wedding mood.

And since I don’t do two exactly the same card, you can see they slightly different, though still staying within the theme and design.

Wedding Congratulations

24 Sep

This card was made some time ago as a wedding congratulations for my friend. I wanted to keep it simple and elegant, but couldn’t resist to add a bit of pink.

Green Love

10 Aug

Might be a wedding card, might be a love card. Or anything else you want.

The hearts were initially stamps, I’ve cut them out with crafts knife and coloured over with mettalic markers. Tedious, time-taking task, but totally worth it. Some silver papers and ribbons as a finish. I really like the “icy” feel this card has.

Card available, priced 5 euro.

New sample cards

1 Aug

There hasn’t been updates lately as I was busy preparing wedding cards. Both of them had been added to my Sample Cards gallery, along with one “Good-bye” card.
