Winter Wedding Wishes

Here in Australia, not many people have weddings in June.

Why not?  Because it’s winter and the weather is much nicer October to March, which is when you are most likely to attend a wedding.

On saying that, planning a February wedding isn’t exactly a walk in the weather park either!

We got married on 13th Feb 2009.  The week leading up to the wedding was 40 degrees (104 Fahrenheit for those of you needing the other scale) on 4 consecutive days.

We’d chosen black suits with black shirts for the guys and heavy red dresses for the girls (crazy I know but I had a vague Valentine’s theme!).  And of course I had layers upon layers of wedding dress!

In a stroke of wedding luck, the weather dipped down to a pleasant 29 degrees and was gorgeous.

You can control lots about the wedding but not weather! I’ve been to weddings where it’s rained, weddings where it’s been cold & weddings where I’ve been blown away.

One thing you can control is a sensational wedding card!!!


This card was a custom request from a friend who went to a winter wedding last weekend.

One of my personalised creations with a design that was inspired by the invite.

The invite had a black & white theme with cute fairy light bunting.

The bride’s new initials will match her husbands so my friend asked that this was a feature of the card.

Would you find it funny or frustrating if your initials were the same?  I ended up with alliterated initials by changing my name – I like it!


This theme was super easy to carry over to the inside of the card with the new Pick a Pattern black & white Washi Tape!

This is one of my all-time favourite wedding sentiments.  You’ll find it in the Better Together stamp set.

Happily Ever After – Thank You Card Gift Set

It’s time for a break from the craft table to attend a wedding!

Mr & Mrs Papercraft have put on some pretty clothes and are having a night out!!!

Although it’s become traditional for monetary wedding gifts in our current generation.

I understand the wishing well – we did the same!  Most couples have already set up house long before they got married and money allows them to buy big ticket items that they want or need.  I will always be grateful for our dishwasher!

I wanted to break from tradition and share some handmade love for the couple’s wedding.

Their wedding invite was so pretty and reminded me of the Seasonal Layers bundle that I’ve been playing with this month.

So, I made 25 notecards in the blossom theme with the gorgeous sentiment from the All Things stamp set ‘ thank you for sharing in our happily ever after’.  So sweet!!!

All Things Thanks is available in the 2017 Occasions catalogue and to my delight, appears in the upcoming Annual Catalogue.

In a very happy coincidence, I was able to package of all of the cards into a box that one of my birthday gifts came in during the week – talk about perfect timing!

And a perfect fit!  The box fits 25 card and decorated envelopes perfectly!

In the same style, I made a wedding card for the happy couple, using masking tape to block out the ‘thank you’ part of the sentiment, leaving just a wonderful wedding sentiment!

The gift set and wedding card use a few retired/retiring items.  There are some things in my stash that I keep for personal creations.

From long ago, I used the Brushed Gold cardstock – it’s perfect for weddings!  Do you still have some tucked away?

From not so long ago, I used Mossy Meadow cardstock (it matched the invite!).

And from now, the soon to be retired the Falling Petals embossing folder.  I’m keeping that one forever!!!

Once the card is all written out, I’ll be finishing it with flourish of ribbon & a bow.

I love handmade!  And I hope this thank you notecard set helps out the happy couple!

Here’s to a wonderful night!!!
