A wedding, not a Christmas card!

 Hi everyone, I seem to be showing you Christmas cards and not others I have been making, so I thought I would let you see one of the "not" Christmas card I made recently.

The card was for our Godson's Son and his bride, OH! where are the years going?

Due to lots going on and lack of mojo, I decided to recreate, with a few little changes, a card I did many years ago, 2012 to be exact. I have looked to see if I blogged it and can't find it with the date of the photo I have, never mind, we'll stick with this one! I had printed the card out previously, this was more hands on.

I stamped the sentiment and hearts around the horseshoe with a silver ink pad, with quite a few impressions of the ink. I cut the horseshoe and the cat out with my digital die cutting machine and also the white overlay which I embossed. I added clear glaze to the cat, after stamping a heart shape onto him, with the silver inkpad. I then placed them onto the horseshoe and added a bunch of flowers I have had for years. I hope they liked it, they are still on honeymoon, so I hope I will know on their return.

The photo's aren't very good to show up the stamping, the light at the time I took them was awful, not even Photoshop could improve them!

stamps - magazine freebies
horseshoe - a cut file I did in 2012.
(I can't remember if it is copied or I made it up myself, well it is a few years ago!)
cat - is an altered image, I had as a freebie svg file, I wanted it more rounded.
ink - Hobbycraft
ribbon - stash

Just lovely Faith and brought back a memory of being a bridesmaid back in the distant past! I was given a pretty silver horseshoe ornament to give the bride and of course as a little girl I wanted to know WHY - only they couldn't tell me!! Stuck in my mind. Congratulations to the happy couple! Vicky x

Hi Faith! A very elegant wedding card with perfect embellishment. We have had a local wedding planner for all my life here and I know her. She's retired, her daughter and now her g-daughter run the biz. Anyway, she told me all about the significance of horseshoes once. A Celtic/Irish tradition gone global then cast aside but now beginning to return. Her g-daughter had to search for months to find a supplier of wood horseshoes so they could decorate them. At any rate, if you have a horseshoe, you don't have to fear black cats! heehee xoxo
