Diamond Wedding card

This is the Diamond Wedding card that I was commissioned to make for Mum's neighbours to send to family members in the UK!
The brief was to produce something simple but classy with no mushy stuff! So this is what I came up with & have just delivered it to very pleased recipients :-)

We chose the lilac ribbon & I opted for a simple bow.

I used one of Mum's congratulation stamps which I stamped in lilac & matted onto a lilac border & fixed onto the card with sticky fixers to raise it up.

I cut the edge using decorative edge scissors & inked it to enhance the edge.
And then added the 3 diamonds (a tiny bit of bling!) in the corner.

Not perhaps my usual style but well received by the commissioners :-)

It's lovely Rachel. Simple but elegant. I bet they will love it.

Rachel said...

Thank you Kath :-)
I hope the recpients love it as much as the people who are sending it :-)

Thanks Lynne - we didn't know a colour which is totally associated with a diamond wedding (like gold & silver for the appropriate 25 & 50 yrs) so we picked our own :-)
