Precious Heart

I really enjoy turning a plain wooden object into something pretty! Wooden hearts are my favourite and are so versatile. This pretty heart could be adapted to suit a number of occasions...a gift for the blushing bride, d├ęcor for the wedding venue, a christening or birthday gift...
 
 


I painted the wooden heart blank using Opal Jo Sonja acrylic paint and a sponge to avoid brushstrokes.
 
 


When the paint was dry I applied self adhesive pearls and a Kaisercraft rub-on.  The sentiment can be adapted to suit, you could also try stamping your own sentiment or maybe the bride and grooms initials using individual letter stamps.
 
 


 
I finished the heart with some paper roses (attached with a glue gun) and some rustic garden twine.
 
A quick and easy project with results you can be proud of every time!
 
I would love to know what you think...

Embossed White Linen Invitation

I love the way an embossing folder simply changes the look of card and paper, and was recently inspired to make this simple and elegant Wedding invitation.
 
 

 
The invitation details were printed on crisp white linen card using font Baroque Script in grey. I prefer to print wedding stationery in grey as it looks more delicate than black ink.
 
 

 
I then embossed the card with a pretty rose and lace embossing folder and tied a simple white organza ribbon around it, before mounting the invitation onto Silver card.
 
 
 
A few self adhesive pearls finish the invitation perfectly!
