We have a co-worker getting married in June and the girls at work asked me to make a card so this is what I came up with. The green accent on her wedding invitation was a sea foam green, so I worked hard to accent the card with a pretty green. The main card is made with Papertreyink's Ivory card stock and is a gate fold card (my first ever!!). The front panels are embossed with Cuttlebug's Birds & Swirls. I mixed a couple colors of VersaMagic ink and lightly dabbed the embossed image to help it pop a bit.
The wedding dress is stamped in SU! Craft Black as I was going to emboss it, but that didn't work out. That's okay, I think it's still totally beautiful! I colored the flowers and leaves on the dress with a sea foam green color and then added pearls down the back of the dress. (don't forget, you can click on any image to see a closer view) The "Celebrate" comes from PTI's Damask Designs set. The inside of the card says "To Love and To Cherish"; I LOVE the script lettering, it's so elegant IMHO. Since this was my first gate fold card, I followed the exact instructions I found on Splitcoaststampers...I wish now I had made the card a bit taller, but that's okay, it's the gift card inside that they'll love the most! :D
OK, now for a walk on my somewhat questionable side - LOL
The base card is SU! Pink Pirouette layered with SU! Chocolate Chip and then another layer of SU! Pink Pirouette stamped with SU! Close to Coc
The inside sentiment from Whipper Snapper says "Mothers of teens know why some animals eat their young". Now that we have a teenager - I SO GET THAT!!!
Such a funny little quote; hope you find the humor in it! I also hope you've had a GREAT weekend!!! Thanks for popping in!! Hugs, ~M.
