To Love & To Cherish

I was asked to make another wedding card recently - the colors were black, white and pink. Well, I really liked the last wedding card I made, so I basically CASE'd myself! :D

I did make this one a typical A2 size card and used Papertreyink's Piece of Cake stamp set for the main image. Isn't that cake beautiful? I stamped the cake using Versamagic Pink Petunia and Pixie Pink. I added glitter to each flower and then a pink half pearl to the center of the medium and large size flowers. I just love how cool the cake looks!

As you can see, I embossed the front with the Birds & Swirls Cuttlebug folder and then gently rubbed ink on the embossed images.

This time I also added decorative paper to the inside of each front panel and punched it with a Martha Stewart border punch - I just love the touch it added.

This last picture shows the inside and the decorative paper I added. One of the best compliments I can receive is someone seeing one of my cards and saying "how much did THAT cost?"; they're always shocked to find it is handmade and cost less than anything you can buy at Hallmark! :D

TFL; I hope you're having a great week! We have a ball tournament this weekend; the temps have been 100+ and we've been under a heat advisory every day this week. Our little ones will need to drink lots of water - trips to the ER for dehydration are NOT needed! Have a great weekend.

Hugs, ~M.
