Sorry I've been AWOL.... I was at a wedding in Edinburgh this weekend and I'm featuring a bridal gift and card that I made for the happy couple, Neha & David. We've known Neha since she was knee-high to a grasshopper- her Dad is a medical school colleague of my hubby's- and now she's all grown up and a married lady! The wedding was lovely, a Hindu wedding ceremony in a Scottish country house. I'll post some pics as soon as they are sent to us. Anyway back to the gift. I wanted to give Neha something to keep so I made her this shoe and boxed it. I made both shoe & box from white pearlised card (Becca Fekken has a shoe with a link on her blog-Amazing Paper Grace- in my blog list) then decorated it with lace, white velvet ribbon, pearl sprays and a white camelia. I adhered it to the white tissue paper in the box and sprinkled wedding confetti inside (I added a little bit of glue to each piece of confetti to stop it moving in the box) I then sealed the box and decorated it with peel off border, white ribbon and another flower. The card is a copy of one featured in a previous post. I added the happy couple's names cut from white glittercard and a Safmat computer generated verse. The verse is beautiful..click on the photo for a better view. After I took the photo I added a vellum envelope to the inside of the card front to which we added some money as a gift.
