Today I want to share a wedding card that I made for my hubby's cousin. Have I ever mentioned to you how much I love weddings? I do! I love the fancy schmancy, expensive stuff and the complete frivolity of all the things we buy for our weddings. You know like the $400 ice sculpture that you just have to have? (Been there, done that!) Looking back, I have no idea why I felt the need to pay $400 for frozen water in the shape of a swan, but I sure did. I will blame it on the fact that I was 21 years old and so in love that I had to share it with the world. Of course, if I could have another wedding today, I'm sad to say, I probably would spend more money than I ever did before. Moving right along to the card...
I made this card to fit a business size (#10) envelope, so it measures 4" x 9". I really like the look of these tall, thin cards. The card base is black. The white, swirly design is from Lyrical Letters. This cut is normally square but I stretched and re-sized it to fit this card.
The stamp is from the dollar bin at Walmart. I have been going to town on that dollar bin! Every time I go to Walmart, I pick up one stamp and one pack of bling. I'm getting a good collection and only spending a couple of bucks each time.
This flower is from Designer's Calendar. I was just scrolling through and saw it and thought it would be good to make a layered flower. The center of the flower is from a pack of "raindrops" that I bought at Big Lots a long time ago. I use these sparingly because I haven't found them again and I really like them.
Thanks for stopping by today!
