Wild Rose Wedding!

This is another project I made for the Cradmaking and Papercraft Cardmaker of the Year Competition. I was super chuffed to win the category as it was one of those projects that turned into a real labour of love! I had this idea of a wedding cake box - it was one of those ideas that sounded good at the time. I hadn't quite realised how tricky a round box would be to make!! The first one I made was way too big so I had to start again from scratch!!

The couple are Wild Rose Studio stamps (they come separately) and I coloured them with copics. The scrummy papers are Wild Rose Studio 'Letter From Paris' which I think is my favourite collection ever! I used the Martha Stewart scalloped punch around the bottom and trimmed with pearl and pearl drop trim from ebay. The flowers are from WOC. Unfortunately, I didn't get a piccie of inside the box but I did decorate it with papers and more pearl trim.

Inside I made a card to match.
Again the stamp is from Wild Rose and is just about the prettiest wedding cake stamp I've seen! I've trimmed with lace and yummy tulle and added the odd Magnolia dragonfly for good measure.

I didn't enter many categories this year as the competition coincided with my trip to hospital. I would like to thank lovely Christine at my local Craft Shop who saved the entry form for me and Squirrel for encouraging me to give the comp a bash. I've met so many lovely friends through crafting and I'm really grateful for all your support.

Thank you for stopping by today, I'll be back tomorrow with my Fairy post. Super big hugs, Jayne xx
