Wedding invitations 4

A couple more of the wedding invitation samples I did for Meiflower. I did 8 in total so only 2 more to post after these.

I used 25mm satin ribbon under the lace which I bought locally, and the matching 10mm over, I also mounted the pearl flower embellishment over the lace diamante buckle to make a combined topper.

For this one I cut the filigree heart from the kraft card before layering over cream card, the die is from the Forever in my Heart signature collection at Crafters Companion. I think the burlap and lace ribbon was from Home Bargains, as usual the satin ribbon and diamante heart embellishment are from Meiflower.

Thanks for dropping by,
take care,
