Wedding Card Idea Using Honey Gold Ribbon Wreath

May 24th, 2013

Hi Everyone,

This week we have a cracking offer on honey gold satin ribbon at MeiFlower. You can save 25% off the price for a 23m roll of gorgeous satin ribbon. That works out at£1.49 for the full roll!

To give you an idea on a different use for the satin ribbon I have made a wedding card decorated with the honey gold satin ribbon, weaved into a decorative horseshoe shape. I have used about 2.5 metres of ribbon for the card below.

Here is a link for the ribbon wreath video which shows you how to do the ribbon weaving.

Hi Everyone

What a lovely day it is today, sun is shining. Summer is finally here!

Today I am going to share my wedding card with you. I bought this gorgeous die cut from Sameul Taylors whilst I was at the craft show, can’t resist something as pretty .

I have used a 6×6 square card, covered the front of the white card with cerise pink card. On top of the cerise card, cover with  a piece of pattern vellum. Matted and layered mirror and cerise card.

Wedding card idea using some gorgeous sequins

August 24th, 2011

Tracey has made this beautiful wedding card using the clear iridescent sequins and silver blossom sequins to give that extra special effect. She has also used wedding card images free from PaperCraft Inspirations, you can download them from their site and the papers are from the wedding paper pack by karsal.

Silver blossom sequins used to go with the colour theme

Silver sequins are also used to decorate the card, they are placed randomly and look like silver bubbles rising up the card.

A quick tip: stick sequins down with uhu glue, then sprinkle your favourite glitter over, wait for it to dry. . . and then you have flowers with glittery centres !!

I love the way Tracey has used the clear iridescent blossom sequins to create a lovely bouquet of flowers, it works really well in relation to the size of the image. Thank you for making this amazing card Tracey!

Ideas for using diamante buckles

August 11th, 2011

Hello Everybody,

As you all know i LOVE things that sparkle and shine especially these gorgeous diamante buckles. Recently i seem to have a tendency of using them ALLLLLL the time, card making, scrapbooking, favour boxes. I actually even thought of adding them onto clothes somehow, but that idea hasn’t worked that well yet. Although i might try making a hair band using these… hmmm… watch this space :D
Sparkly diamante buckles are sooooo versatile for all sorts of cards so here’s a few samples.

Diamante ribbon sliders

I used a heart shaped diamante buckle to make a purple themed card. The backing is a metallic mirror card from Kanban, if you look closely you can see the back of the diamante buckle reflecting in the card. I also added some purple gems to decorate the card. I had this lovely organza ribbon lying around in my craft stash, as you can see the ribbon fits just perfectly.

Tracey made a wedding card using the heart buckle. As you can see you don’t always need to use ribbon that fits perfectly. Wide organza ribbon works perfectly as it is quite soft and easy to work. All you do is simply slide the ribbon through to give it a nice ruffled effect. Tracey used ivory chiffon ribbon for her card.

To be honest, i have bought other ribbon sliders in the past and the quality hasn’t been too great, I’ve had these buckles specially made for me. You’ll notice that each diamante gems is individually set. Also the back of the buckles are a nice silver which gives the gems more of a sparkly shine!

Finally . . . . not only do i use these for my cards, my friend recently got married so i wrapped her present with some organza ribbon and what better to finish off the box than a diamante buckle to tell her how much i love her.

I think the chocolate organza ribbon works really well and looks absolutely gorgeous. I’m very happy with this ribbon as it holds its shape really well, I’ve used some before and it was really floppy this also cuts well without fraying.
