Fab'n'Funky Challenges #145 - Die Cuts/Punches

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you are all well and that my American friends are safe in the midst of Hurricane Sandy.  The weather can be so ferocious.

I think we have a few animal lovers in our following!  We loved your entries last week.  Check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog to see our lucky winners and Top 3.

Now on to our current challenge and we have the super talented Pat K as our host.  She has chosen a theme that I think has to be a favourite of many...

Die Cuts/Punches

Our sponsors this week are the ever versatile Joanna Sheen and the brilliant StampArt Design by Kathryne.  Check out their sites by clicking the links and you'll be in crafty heaven!

So I have a wedding card for you today.  The wedding was back in September so I've also included a photo of the happy couple on their big day.

I started off with an A4 piece of card and scored to make a gatefold card.  I inserted a heart die into the middle so that I could cut the heart from the front.  I added my image but I can't remember for the life of me where it came from.  I used some glitter on the bride's flowers to make them stand out.  The die cuts are Spellbinders Moroccan Accents.  I used the insert of the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three for the sentiment which has been glittered with MCS ultra fine glitter.  I also added this glitter around the edge of the hear aperature. 

Here are the happy couple - Katie-Ann and Ewan.  They had gorgeous weather and we were all thrilled for them.  It was a truly lovely day.

Now it's over to you - show us your die cuts or punched shapes for our challenge to be in with a chance of winning one of our great prizes.

Don't forget that we have our Birthday Extravaganza coming up in a few weeks time.  There will be loads of prizes up for grabs over the fortnight of celebrations.  Hope you can join us.

Happy crafting,

Love your card Rachel, it's gorgeous! Don't you hate it when you can't remember where an image comes from...I find that really annoying when it happens to me!! I have this image too, so can tell you it's from Papercraft Inspirations and was a freebie. Hope this helps :)
