Wedding stationery and cake box

Post by Jocelyneliza on 2011-02-11, 01:45

My nephew’s wedding took place last Sunday and I have placed photos of the invitation, place card and cake box in the Gallery under Wedding.

My photography skills definitely need to be honed and I tried to scan but there were too many dark patches. (Any tips on scanning of quilling would be greatly appreciated.)

I purchased the threefold heart cut-out cards in bulk and the ‘heart slug’ from the centre of the card was also included so I used these for place cards. I only purchased 50 heart cards for the invitations so I did not have enough small hearts for all the guests. I had also purchased oval cut-out cards so I used the ‘oval slugs’ for the men and the ‘heart slugs’ for the women. I printed the guest’s names onto heart and oval shaped labels and stuck these to the card, it worked well.

My sister wanted a touch of China in the wedding so we attached the place cards to a set of white chopsticks with red cord. The chopsticks have the Chinese Double Happiness symbol stamped in gold. The cake box is the origami box.

Although it does not show up in the photo of the invitation I put glitter glue around the edge of all the teardrops on the flowers and butterflies as they seemed quite ‘bland’ and needed a lift. I do not feel comfortable using glitter or any embellishments in my quilling (personal thing) so my friends were quite surprised to see it there. The butterfly also has special significance for Chinese weddings.

Such a labour of love and everything you did for the wedding turned out simply perfect.
How is that RSI?
Hope you still have the energy to quill some more
