Whiff of joy GDT call

Evening all, you may or may not know that every 2 months on the 16th Katharina Frei from whiff of joy has a Guest Designer Team Call.To enter or find out more details click HERE. 

This is my entry for the whiff of joy GDT. Hope you like it.

I have made a criss-cross card with a difference. Instead of gluing the criss cross card shut i have left it open. I have secured it with a tied ribbon. When you pull the ribbon it opens up the card. Ribbon is white organza from eBay. Im not sure where this DP is from as they were in my stash(ill get back to you on that one).

I have glittered around all edges with stickles crystal.

All images are from whiff of joy, wedding cake. All images are coloured with distress ink refills. DP is from Magnolia, sixpence. I have mounted the DP on bazzill silver cardstock. I was going to make a box as well for this card but i have run out of the silver cardstock :-(


I have added a pocket to this so i can slide in a piece of card. This pocket stops the piece of card slipping out due to the fact i haven't glued the criss cross card.

 Willow as bride, Oakley as groom. I have added pearl mist to the bride`s vale to make it sparkle, also added glossy accents to oakley`s shoes to make them shine. I stamped stempelglede grunge corner on the corners with memento rich coco. The tab at the top is the big die from spellbinders fancy tags. Added pearls from eBay.

This is the back of the insert so i can write a message to the happy couple. Punched border is from Martha Stewart called Quilted(i think).

Wedding carriage. I have distressed around the edge with brushed corduroy distress ink. Sentiment is from Magnolia, happily ever after. Silver corners are from a sizzix die i got off eBay.

I have my fingers(and toes) crossed very tightly. I love whiff of joy products and would love to be a GDT for them, not to mention working alongside the amazingly talented DT team they have.
