Polkadoodles Horse-shoe

Summertime Wedding Horse-shoe

My two year old great niece is an attendant at her aunt's wedding this summer and with this in mind, I made her this horse-shoe.I had thought about stamping onto vellum or parchment but the selection of flowers from Polkadoodles 'Winnie Fruit Punch fitted perfectly. To make it, die-cut three rings, cut a sliver out from the circumference and glued them together. I printed a couple of sheets of the flower with a trio of leaves and the same of daisies, cut them out then added them to the base. I cut out the daisies, curled the petal round a fine paintbrush, then added them either singly or in pairs over these. A couple of butterflies were added plus self-adhesive pearls and a ribbon plait. 
Et voila! A delicate horse-shoe! 


  1. This is beautiful Shelagh, such pretty colours - a brilliant idea.

    1. Thank you, Pauline. A few print-outs and a bit of fussy cutting - hey presto an original horse-shoe. Wouldn't like to guess how much one would cost in the shops nowadays. ;~}

  2. Hi Shelagh, what a fabulous creation - one of the prettiest horseshoes I have seen. Simply lovely and perfect for summertime.. hugs, Carol xx
