Wedding Card

Any blogging experts out there?  Several of the blogs I follow are suddenly appearing under the heading 'hidden' in my list of blogs.  Any new posts these bloggers make no longer appear in my 'reading list', so I've missed a lot of their new creations.  Anyone know how I can rectify this?

A friend of mine was married last weekend and this is the card I made for the happy couple.  I used the theme of  butterflies and colours of deep red, silver and white to carry on the theme on the invitation I received.

The main deep red panel is Memory Box 'Butterfly Heart' die cut , which I layered on white, before matting on silver.

Here is a close-up of the die cut which shows the butterflies a little clearer.  The die doesn't cut out the butterflies, but leaves the bodies still attached, so the wings can be lifted. The embossing folder is an A4 one, although I'm not sure of the make.  The tiny hearts were the waste from a Memory Box 'Heart of Hearts' die cut.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew Challenge #110 ~ Die Cuts
Bizzy Bec's April Challenge ~ Anything Goes

The most perfect and personal card. Loving the deep rich colour of the red and that die is fabulous x Wish I could help with Blog issues but it's a mystery to me! x

This is such a deep rich red, and perfect for this heart die. I'm so glad you did a closeup to reveal the details, as it's so pretty. I don't know why the blogs are being hidden. I have a problem that I don't 'see me' in blogs that I'm following for a long time, if I visit. (no picture in their followers list). If I try to 'follow' again, I get the message I'm already following, to sign in to Google, even though I'm already signed in! Just visit when you can, and know I'll be so happy to see you! Hope if you find the answer, you'll share on a post, so we can know what to do. It's probably happening to many of us, but we don't realize it!!! TFS & Happy Sunday.

Love the way you themed this to the wedding colours. I bet the bride and groom loved it. Cara x

I lost a few of my followers Liz. When I saw them comment on my blog I went back to theirs and simply signed in again - even when it told me I was already signed in! Problem solved (so far!). Hidden blogs are Mr Bloggers way of driving us all mad I think - a conspiracy!!
Lovely rich red used in this card - like it very much!

Thanks Viv. I've managed to refollow one of the blogs, it's still showing as hidden, but hopefully I'll be able to see when there are new posts. xx

Janice said...

Your card is beautiful Liz, the MB heart die is something very different. I am a great collector of embossing folders and love the one you have used. I'll have a little look for it to add to my collection!

A beautiful card Liz - I love the colours you've used and the MB butterflies are so pretty.
I'm afraid I have no ideas about Blogger - it's all a mystery to me!

Didn't even know you could HAVE hidden blogs! So I'm no help, sorry.

Loving your personalised wedding card. Sure to be treasured xxx

Liz said...

When I go into my editing page where I can see a list of the blogs I follow, right at the bottom of the list, it says I have nine blogs I'm following which are hidden. No idea why! x

Thanks so much for the inspiration.

This is very pretty Liz and a great idea to use the colours from the invitation. The butterfly heart is a beauty and love the little hearts you have added on the background embossing. x
