Here are the results:
First of all there are Small Heart Labels, which are 3 inches at the longest part. I used gold corrugated card for the backing and plain black card for the pretty lace effect on top.
I used a 3" scalloped heart punch for the gold parts and used my cricut expression and the wedding cartridge for the black bits. I then used my cropodile big-bite to make the little hole for them to thread through their ribbon.
I then made some labels using the black card as the background and gold lacey tops.
These were bigger hearts cut using the cricut machine for both sections and they measured about 4 and 1/4 inches at the longest part.
The next bunch of labels were a different shape altogether.........looking more like real labels:
These were more tricky to make. Using the cricut machine I cut out both sections again from the same gold and black card, making sure they were all cut at the same measurements so that the two pieces would fit together neatly. I think it worked quite well.
For their candles they wanted something different, so I thought...................candles? Church! So this is what I came up with, and they were delighted:
Inspired, I think! Using the same cricut cartridge......................
For the bigger items I made a few of these:
And the last ones were made using a cuttlebug and embossing/die:
Once these were cut out I gold leafed them on the edges to match in with the other labels.

So there is the story of labels from Annie's Cards. I hope you are all having a great day today and I will probably be back a little later with other tales and titbits.
And just to finish things off, today I made this lovely black and gold card:
I think this is a grand card. The black background sets off the gold beautifully, and I love the greetings on the top and the bottom of the centre-piece. I added the little metallic gold flower, because I could and the gold ribbon down the left had side just sets the whole thing off. I don't think my photographic skills does the card any justice, but I think you get the drift. The hearts are decoupaged and gives the whole thing depth.
