Commission card

Well I have just finished the other 2 Advent frames for my sister-in -law so I have now done 5 I found the numbers the longest to do you need loads of 1 & 2`s she has asked me  to do 4 Xmas cards for her but she is paying for these but its my choice ,only one though has to be football theme Man U,

The card I am showing now was commissioned card for some one else it was for a silver wedding anniversary I did it in the break from the advent frames .

Here is the inside
And the card envelope as I had made bitty blossom flowers

 Card and envelope together

I had to do the names in peel off`s that was the only thing I was not happy in doing but I couldn't do anything else , the hearts on the card I sniped one gently to in twine them and you couldn't see the join
I was really pleased how it turned out in the end .

All spellbinder`s dies
Ribbon from stash
Pearls from hobby craft , peel off`s from stash
stamp from creative expressions

Thanks for stopping By it means so much to me


  1. Beautiful card, so much clever layering and stunning envelope too :) x

  2. This card is stunning Melanie! A grerat combination card and enveope/box.I really love it. Which dies are those larger ones? I recognise the Floral Ovals obviously, but the others are so beautiful. HAve a good day. Christine x

    PS The digi stamp I used for the baby card is from Cuddly Buddly. For 99p you get the bootees, a nappy pin and a dummy, very good value.

    1. They are the grand decorative ovals one which where release this year C& C did a deal for the two Circles and ovals which I got because I new they would go with my romantic ovals small the ones I used for the envelope sre dies I used at christine class so I just had to get them can`t remember what they are called
