Wedding Card

This card was made recently for our friend Brent's wedding.  The little hearts turned out so cute!

I believe the inspiration for it came from a Splitcoaststamper posting.  When I'm looking around on the internet and I find a card that I like, it's saved in an "Ideas" folder.  Frequently I'll scroll through the photos in my folder and find something I want to make.

This card measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  It's not very often that I make one this size but this was a special wedding to me so it called for a nicer card.

The sentiments were computer generated in my card making software.  The hearts were cut at 2".  For the groom I cut one plain white one and one out of some black striped SU paper.  I hand cut the notch in the black one so the white "shirt" would be visible and added 3 tiny red brads for the buttons.

The bride heart is glossy white paper that was run through the Cuttlebug.  I added pearly white brads on it.

The silver patterned paper is from an old stack that I had on hand and I mounted it onto metallic silver paper.  Added a small organza bow for an accent and I was done!

The inside of the card didn't get photographed but the sentiment is "Through every step you take together, may joy and happiness walk with you....may laughter dance along your path and love always shine on you."

Isn't that a nice sentiment for a wedding card?

I found them on Ebay and bought 3000 of them plus 1000 of the clear envelopes to put A2 cards and paper envelopes inside.

They were very reasonably priced.

Thanks for your nice compliments!

I made another of these for a friend to use at another wedding.

The person that I made it for said it was passed around the entire room at the reception for everyone to see because it was so unique.

A couple of little girls were really impressed when they saw the bride & groom's names on it. They wanted to know how she got a card at the store with the names on it! LOL!
