Hand made Thursday - a wedding card

This weekend I am going to the wedding of the daughter of two of my oldest friends. We've known Philippa since she was a tiny tot - not right since her birth, as we lived overseas for the first year of her life. But we are practically courtesy Aunt and Uncle to her. So I wanted to make her a really special wedding card. And as almost always when a very special, keepsake card is what I want to produce, the Bookatrix embossing board was called into action.

This time I cut one of the pages twice, once in card and once in acetate, then cut out the centre of the card one to reveal the acetate windows below and the patterned paper (won in a Twitter competition!) in the layer below. The windows  were finished with peel offs and a stand made from matching patterned paper. The little rosebuds finishing the corners look flat in the photo but in fact are quite deep. They came from a Hot Off The Press kit.

I neede to make sure it didn't get damaged in the post so I made a matching box.
