Irish Wedding

Greetings amazing crafters.

Today's card had a bit of a difference to it. I'm normally just making the standard one fold card but today i made a beautiful gate fold card. 
I was asked to make this card as a matter of urgency as the lady needed it for a wedding she was attending. She wanted a card which was Saint Patrick's Day themed.

Although I was literally going out of my mind trying to figure out how I was going to make this card I finally come up with this idea.

All I kept thinking was green, green, green. Love hearts, Leprechauns, Rainbows, Gold, Flowers and clovers. I totally ditched most of the ideas as you can see and I'm so glad I did else I wouldn't have come up with this beautiful design.

*First of all I chose out a beautiful lime green card. I had to make a template first by folding a piece of card in half then those halves in to halves themselves. I then cut an arch out of both of the end pieces and used that as a template for the actual card. Long winded I know but hey it worked in the end.
*The next thing I did was emboss the sections i'd just cut from. It was a shake up between a few folders but I thought the one I used looked the best. 
*Next came the bow. After spending an hour trying to figure out how to add the patterned bow to a plain white bow and then opting to stick them using double sided sticky tape, I cut the Ribbons to size and stuck them together to form the bow and added a cute pearl to the centre.
*Using a piece of vellum I cut it to size to fit the inside of the card and emboss the two adjacent corners with a flower. 
*Underneath I added a plain piece of paper which I left blank ready for it to be written on.
*Next I printed off some lettering which I cut out and added to the front using foam pads to give it a bit of depth. 
*The envelope was emboss with the exact same folder I used to emboss the actual card. This is a pretty unique thing to do as iv'e never seen another card maker do this before. It just adds such a beautiful addition to the card.  

All in all I loved making this card and i'm certainly going to be making another of these types.
The lady was very happy with what I had come up with and i'm so pleased she liked it.

Whats your favourite colour?

Have a beautiful crafty day
