Ruby Wedding Commission

I was commissioned to make a congratulations card and celebratory message bunting as gifts for a couple celebrating their 40 years of marriage. 
Card: A4, cream Fotokarton, hand cut design. Red glitter card behind, gold card frame for support.
Bunting: Gold card, red metallic sheen card, cream ribbon, machine stitched.

These are some photos from the party, with the card and bunting on the top table…

Birthday card for mum

My mum deserves nothing less than the finest, most elaborate birthday card I can possibly craft. 
Here I have experimented with making a card where the focal point is spread across the inside of the card, with the outside being blank. 

Here's a work in progress image – I'm cutting from behind this time.

New baby gifts

Gifts for a newly born baby boy. 
Not knowing the baby's gender before, we bought a lovely wooden elephant for the family a few months ago. This inspired the design of the congratulations card with an elephant family, and also the print on a t-shirt for the little big sister.

I made pinwheel brooches! They are so simple to make and look so cute! I shall furnish all my friends with the joy!

Cake Bunting

While the cake was in the oven I had just enough time to make some bunting ready for when it came out.

I first noticed this font in the 'Lollipops' printed catalogue (France, Autumn 2012 – issue 9).
I really like it, and appreciate it's many glyphs.
