Are you looking forward to the weekend? We have a meeting with our mortgage broker on Saturday morning but the rest of the weekend is free, it feels strange not to be going to a craft class this weekend, but I have a few booked for the coming weeks.
Today I wanted to share the Wedding card I made for the couple that own one of my favourite shops, Pocket Watch and Petticoats. They are a vintage clothing shop based in Bury St Edmunds, there is also one in Ipswich. I'm a big fan of vintage and have been for quite some time. I've always had a feeling that I was born in the wrong era, I really love the feminine style and lines of 40s/50's clothing, and the hairstyles too.
I bought the Waistcoat stamp from Keep on Crafting with this card in mind, other than that I didn't really have a plan, but it made sense to make it a vintage style. I then decided that I wanted a dress on the card too but couldn't find a stamp I liked in the right style, that was went I was struck by the idea of an origami dress. I have made these before but I needed to refresh my memory so I found this video on youtube to be the most helpful.
I used two sheets of Cocoa Blissful paper sheets inside.

There was a celebration at the shop a few days before, here is a pic from the day which I have tinkered with in Serif Craft Artist. Shortly after this photo the couple had a dance in the street with "The Knightingales Vintage Trio" singing "Chapel of Love".
