Wedding card bonanza

Today I'm inviting you to take a look at a bunch of weddingcards I've made. I meant to wish you a happy Valentine's yesterday, but my poor computer got a virus :( Hopefully it's fixable. Right now I can't access any photos, print any texts or check my candycalendar. Good thing we have a laptop my fiancée borrowed from work so I can have some contact with the world.

Yesterday I worked the whole night on weddingcards. Caardvarks are having a contest where the winning weddingcard will get published in CARDS magazine. I would love to get that opportunity!

I have made many cards because I had sooo many ideas. I photographed them just before the daylight went away. Still have a couple of ideas, but we'll see if I will make more. Those pics won't get as good. I don't have access to my photoediting program due to the virus, so I haven't been able to crop the pics or do anything fancy with them.

Here are a couple of my cards:

The first one fits a sketch over at papertake weekly.

With or without the text "tying the knot". I had to handwrite it...

I used a stamp from sweet pea stamps and turned it into a weddingstamp. She is coloured with grey to add shades and silver glitter. In her hair she has a charm and a piece of mesh (looking like a vail) peeps from behind the image.

A simple yet elegant card. Different glitter put on the embossed parts.

A little different weddingcard. Handmade cutout bird with stamped flying birds on it. A tail made out of a feather and a vail out of mesh behind its head. A pearlbrad by the tail and for an eye.With or without text.       

Hope you enjoyed them. Now I'll be putting cardmaking a little bit to the side and start sewing, knitting and making jewelry again. I just finished a pair of earrings and a necklace yesterday so those pics will come soon.
