Wedding frogs

One of my friends got married in August and she absolutely loves greens and blues. The colour scheme for the wedding was white, obviously, and a dark teal shade.┬áHer best-friend asked if I could make a card with a box for her to give away. It was to keep with the colour scheme, and if possible include a bride and groom FROG! WTF??!! Oh well, I had to give it a go… I also made a matching card and box from myself, and another matching card from a co-worker, as I thought it would be cool to have it as a set. I will post up the others in a few days!

I knew the exact shade of teal as I’d help pick some stuff, so all I had to do was match it up. She was borrowing my Martha Stewart puncher to make butterflies, so obviously I had to add a lot of butterflies to the card. I bought a pre-coloured digital image and printed it. I’ll update with where I bought it as soon as I get home from my holiday as I cannot remember here and now.. I used ribbon from a local shop. The lace and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, as are the big pearls. The butterfly border has been made with a Tim Holtz die, and I have them all the dark green shadow and various colours for the wings and added rows of small pearls to create the body.

I used a pre-made box bought at Panduro and decorated it with the same colours, flowers, butterflies and pearls and wrote the name of the bride and groom.

Here is another photo of the card and box together.

I will link up various bits when I get home towards the end of the week.
