Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and a very warm welcome to everyone that
stops here for a visit.
I am so very grateful for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.

Today I am showing you a wedding card my
daughter asked me to make for a work colleague,
who was getting married.
Now she wanted an A4 size so everyone of the
staff could sign it.
Now those of you that know me, know I love 
to incorporate the colour that the bridesmaids
are wearing in my cards.
So here is what I came up with.

I thought as there were a lot of people to sign
it, I would put DL cards inside for everyone to
sign, and that way it wouldn't spoil the card.

Now the box.

This is a A4 size card made out of Centura Snow
White Pearl A3 card.
I used my embossing folder that came with the
I edged all the card with blue ink.
The wedding couple are from a copyright free
 book I have, and I printed them onto Centrura
Pearl card, and decoupaged them too.
I decorated her dress with a few sequins from
my stash.

Thank you again for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Oh! WOW! Jenny what a FANTASTIC card & box.
Love, love, love, the idea of the cards inside for everyone to sign. This saves the card getting all bent and dog eared being passed around.
The couple are so beautiful, I just LOVE it all
Have a fantastic weekend. Hazel, Eliane and I are off up to Perth to meet up with Kate (Culliesocks) we will have a good old chat and catch up.

Hi Jenny, The card and box are stunning, and what a fabulous idea to put the DL's inside for people to sign onto, genius !!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hazel said...

Jenny your card and box are stunning, if fact they are more than stunning, what a lovely idea putting those cards inside so people used them rather than the card itself. This will be treasured for many a year to come. When I think of our wedding day cards they were very plain, I still have them 44years later. Hazel xx

Gorgeous card Jenny and such a good idea putting the cards inside.

This one is a dazzler! LOVE that paper. Your design idea of the added signature cards was brilliant as well, now the Bride can keep this lovely one-of-a-kind beauty pristine, while she has the signatures written on the small cards. This pearly paper is new to me. Your image design was beautiful, and the touches of the palest blue, heightened the pearliness of this paper. Your DD must have been so thrilled with this card. I know the bride will be. TFS & Hugs

It's a good thing I sit down at my computer when I ring in here, Jenny, or your cards would knock me over on my bottom!! I think this is now my favorite card and box of all you've made! What a beautiful scene on the front and your idea to put packets of cards inside for signing (and the way you did it) is pure GENIUS!! Hugs, Darnell

Erika said...

A beautiful wedding card Jenny, I'm sure your daughter's friend at work will love it.
Great idea using tag style inserts so all can sign it.

Hugs Erika. x

Hello Jenny

I am gobsmacked and lost for words, your card and box are so delicate and beautiful. I love the bride and groom and the tiny spray of flowers on the front. And, that embossing folder on the box is brilliant Love, love the brilliant idea to use signature cards

I think this is my most favourite make of yours to date.
