Morning, time for a new theme at Allsorts where I am your host and the theme I have chosen is ''Matching Pairs'. When I have time I love to make a coordinating envelope for my cards and that was the thinking, but it could equally be a matching gift tag, bag or even box.
Prizes for March come from Oakwood, Highlight Crafts, AALL and Create and Craft Stash, there's a photo of them all on the challenge blog and winners will be drawn on Friday 31st March.
This was made last year as the date confirms and very similar to the one I made for Zachary and Faith's wedding just in a different colour way. This was for Sam and Anysia who had the heartbreak of having their May 2020 wedding cancelled in the early days of Covid lockdowns.
The re-scheduled wedding took a totally different route to the original plans and was a civil ceremony at a Country House wedding venue, she even had a new wedding dress and different colours for the Bridesmaids as she wanted everything to be different, something I could totally understand. What happened to the original dresses? Someone got a very good deal on a designer gown from an on line wedding re-sale site!!
I uses a Lisa Horton embossing folder, die and stencil set, cut focal hearts and embossed to match the base layer, place the flowers centrally and made a matching insert and envelope.
I have a second share, this was a condolence card for a neighbouring farmer who recently lost his wife. I used AALL and Create Sent with Love stamped very simply onto a stencilled background a paper pieced bloom, some little dewdrops and a matching envie.
In my current efforts to enter a challenge now and then I would like to use the above Rose card to join in the Flower Challenge which ask for new stamps and dies, this is a recent release from A&C. I'm rather at the eleventh hour but was alerted to the challenge by Crafting Vicky and as a floral girl thought I should try and link up.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
