Valentine Gift


This is my project for my DT post at movingalongwiththetimes.

I haven't had a lot going on here for the past few days. I have been busy making wedding place settings, I am waiting for more R.S.V.P's now.

Having a break from them I have made this Valentine's gift:

I have purchased a cheap 8x8in box frame. I have used two different pink card as my background. I used various nesting die sets cutting the same two colours and then patterned paper. I attached the three layers of each shape and then added them to my background. I die cut the banner using a Sue Wilson set and then added Girlfriend and a flower.

My son plans on giving this to his girlfriend for Valentine's Day

Place Setting


The invitations are complete now the bride would like me to do place settings. She knew exactly what she wanted. I covered the front of this cream place setting with lilac card.
