We're taking a little break from Christmas today so I can share the wedding card that I made for a colleague who's getting married this afternoon. I used a card that Amy Scheffer did a few days ago as inspiration, but I altered a few things for mine this time.
The chipboard hearts are covered with designer paper from the same paper pack as the rest of the prints. I used K & Co McKenna for this one. The card base is a 5-1/2 x 11 piece of American Crafts Ecru that I had in my bin. I layered that on a 5-3/4 square of Soft Suede. The designer paper pieces were all stitched together on my sewing machine using a combination of straight stitches and zig-zag. I sponged the edges lightly too, but it's a little hard to tell in the photo. The ribbon came next. I had a completely different piece of ribbon started for this but it just wasn't working for me, so I settled on this soft binding tape type ribbon from Martha Stewart. Next came the hearts which I blinged up a bit with some pre-swirled pearl flowers from Basic Grey. I can't tell you how long I've had those in my stash! Finally, I toyed with stamping a "Congratulations" piece for the little banner, but decided to personalize it a little more with a tag that has their names and the date of their wedding instead. I printed that up on my computer along with a sentiment for the inside in the same font.
Now, I'm off to finish some laundry so I have something to wear to the wedding today and I also have some packing to do to pull the stuff I'm taking up for Josh together. I can't tell you how happy I am about that prospect! Whoohoo!!!!
Have a wonderful day!
