A Wedding Gift for Hooley

My Daughter-in-law Kerry came up with  an idea for one of her friend's Wedding Gift.
She collected phrases and sayings associated with Hooley,
then asked me how to go about putting these together.
This is what we came up with.
We are very happy with it.

I stamped the letters in Black on White card  using the Morning Post Alphabet stamp set
and punched them using the Artisan Label punch.
We then had the mammoth task of putting these together
 on a canvas which I had painted with Black Acrylic.
Simon helped us with this task, so thanks Simon - we appreciated the help.
It took us the best part of an afternoon to put this together.
We then decided to die cut the letters and numbers in White cardstock to add the date.
Think that it just finished it off nicely.
What do you think??


  1. I think it is absolutely blooming fantastic. What a fabulous idea.

  4. Fantastic work Kate, bet your daughter loved this xxx

  5. A very clever card, fantastic idea rather than just printing various sized word on the card as is the fashion at the moment, it would also be an ideal card for any crossword fan.
