Wedding cards





I had to make 4 wedding cards today, 3 of the cards are going to a friend of mine who has gotten married in Cuba but is having a reception this weekend. One card is for my Aunt and Uncle to give, another for my parents to give and another for myself and hubby to give...lol, had to make everyone different. Then my Aunt's niece is getting married in the summer, so she asked me to create a card for her...hope they like what I have come up with :)!


The flourish pattern that you see there in white, is actually from a template that I picked up from Photo Memories in Halifax. They have lots of different templates, and you just have to make sure that you don't move your template while you are trying to draw your image. The sentiment that I used for this card is "Congratulations", and I also used a stamp that was a set of rings to go under the sentiment. I got this stamp set from PhotoMemories too, the last time I was there...I believe this sentiment and ring stamps were from Inkadinkado but I don't remember :)! The image of the tree came from Inkadinkado...gotta love that tree image :)!


This second card I used another stamp from that same wedding set I got the ring and sentiment from, it had 12 or so different stamps in this set. Some for weddings, some for Anniversary...didn't have anything really that would fit any of those two categories so I got this one. I also used my flower cuttlebug folder for this card, my versamark ink pad and some gold embossing powder for the rings...love how this card and the next card turned out :)!~





The third card is very much like the first card, but I used the flower folder as a border for the card... and not for the whole front of the card...it turned out better than I thought it would :)!
