My friend's brother got married last weekend. She asked me to make a card for them, in their colour scheme of black, white and silver.
They're pretty young, so I decided to go sleek and modern. I started with a stacked heart in a silver foil paper that I think looks almost like stainless steel. I inlaid the 'lway', and added the 'a' and 's' outside. The trickiest bit of this was the spacing of the letters, so I lined the dies up on my graph paper and then picked them up with masking tape to keep them properly spaced when I cut them out of the heart.
We dropped Struan at his gliding school yesterday. He'll be there for 2 1/2 weeks or so, and when he's done, he'll be fully qualified for his license (except for the small fact that he's only 15 - he'll have to wait until he's 16 to actually be licensed). I'm trying hard not to think of him thousands of feet up in the air with only the wind holding him up! :-)
