Wedding Card - Tying the knot

Morning everyone,  how is your Monday going so far.  Mine is wonderful, another day of school holidays, so a few plans have been made.  

This is the second card I made for my friend who asked for a wedding card. (Made three all up)
I have to admit this is my favourite.  
The couple that are getting married are sailors and apparently they made their own invitations.  On the invites they had attached lots of different sailing knots.
So I decided to follow that theme.
I started with a plain white card, added some gold vellum paper.  Then used this lovely pearlised white paper which I ran through my 'Victoria' embossing folder.  I printed out the sentiment on my computer.  and tied this 'Clove Hitch' on to some bamboo skewers which I cut short.  My husband helped me choose the knot as I did want one you could use in sailing....and yes, he enjoys his sailing too. Plus we both like the fact that the name is 'Clove Hitch' and this couple are getting hitched.

I would like to enter into these challenges:


  1. This is beautiful - I love it.
