Vintage Wedding

Hello. I was asked end of last year to make a envelop for my Aunty to give money for a wedding she was attending.

Here's what I came up with:

I used my adoring accents to cut the flap opening and I've layered the outside with very vanilla which has been embossed with my vintage wallpaper EB folder and I've brayered crumb cake on the non raised side of the folder to create subtle colour. My band is a piece of very vanilla, with a crumb cake strip of card and I've punched a scallop circle, lots of leaves and the bird from the bird builder punch to create the focal point. I brayered the bird with crumb cake ink to give it a bit more definition. I actually used this card I made recently as my inspiration. The card is layered onto crumb cake and has the swirl from 'baroque motifs' along the side. My Aunty was thrilled with the end result and said that this was definately one of a kind :)

Thanks for looking
