My niece was  married on her family property in November.  The theme for the wedding was sunflowers – her favourite flowers!  They match her sunny disposition and I was thrilled with her news.  I knew I had to make them a special wedding card. Here is the result:

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to attend the wedding and I didn’t want to risk sending the card in the post, so I had to wait until they came to pay us a visit the week before Christmas to give them the card.  I think they liked it!!  The bridesmaids wore navy dresses and the groomsmen had sunflowers in their buttonholes and her Dad managed to find a tie for the day with large sunflowers.

Below is a picture of the card open.  It is a real WOW card and got the desired reactions.

Ruths Wedding Card Inside Stampin Up Annette McMillan 10-12-2017

I used the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, which I think is easily overlooked in the catalogue.  The colours I used are Night of Navy and Crushed Curry, along with Whisper White and a Silver Glimmer paper.  The card was inspired by Angela Lorenz at and Jacinta Argent at   These two talented ladies both create beautiful exploding box cards like this one.  I hope you like the card and I hope to be back soon with some more creations to share with you.
