Not my usual style...


Yep this isn’t really my style and something very new i tried. But I have been looking at my left over wedding cards for over 9 months now and it was high time I do something with them!

It was fun cutting every bit to get the most from the pretty cardstock :) Trust there was hardly anything left after my dissection!

I kept the design minimal. One card with the Ganesh God image is for Diwali (Festival of Indian) while the other has handmade flowers without a sentiment. I just didn’t feel like adding anymore I guessJ. This is a quick post. :) Will be back with more soon!

I am also entering this card for:








Supplies: Elle Err Fabriano, Kaisercraft crystal brads, MS Classic Butterfly punch,
recycled wedding invite



Supplies: Elle Err Fabriano, Gold Permanent marker, Cuttlebug Lable 1 Die-cut,
recycled wedding invite



This is the original wedding invite:)


Cheers!
