Wedding Card, Box and Tag

This is the wedding card, box and tag I've made for Elaine and Andy to give Andy's friends who are getting married next weekend.  Elaine has seen me make quite a few of these shoe cards using the Coppernob Elegant Shoe template so she asked if I'd make one for them to give Chris and Karen.   Also in the photo are a couple of the favour boxes for the wedding which Elaine and Andy decorated and filled with tablet which they have made themselves.  Pictures of the tablet making production can be seen in the next post.

The colour scheme for the wedding party is Cadbury's Chocolate purple for the bridesmaids dresses and Hunting Stewart tartan for the men.  We couldn't get tartan ribbon to match so decided on a green and purple combination to decorate the boxes and then carried on the same colour theme for the card.  The matching backing paper which has a tartan/plaid effect came from a Cuddly Buddly download A Patchwork of Papers Purple.  It couldn't have been a better match and I carried on the Scottish flavour with a few thistle on the the little topper.  

Information about what I used, plus tips on how to make this card can be read in the link to this older post.  Fingers crossed now that all goes well on the day and everyone has a lovely time.
