Wedding Wishes

I had the privilege of attending a beautiful wedding in Bonavista on the weekend. I love weddings - planning them, Reading about them, attending them. Of course, that's primarily because it's awesome to watch to people in love become husband and wife and to celebrate in their joy. It's also because weddings are such a reflection of personal style, and well, I'm into that kinda thing.

When I attend weddings, I try to make a card that is inspired by the wedding invitation. People spend so much time picking colours and choosing their designs, I think it adds something special to the card to incorporate that somehow. So, here's the card I created for this wedding and you can see the wedding invite and envelope beneath it:

As you can see, I used the colours and general design as the base of the card. I had a circle flower stamp set from Hero Arts that I used to mimic the look of the flower/pinwheels and clustered them together in the same way. I used a plain old hole puncher and backed the holes with paper in the wedding colours on the bottom for added dimension and then used the sparkly ribbon and gemstones in the circles for added bling. Tis a wedding after all! I finished it all up with a Happy (on outside) Together (on inside) stamp using one of my favourite sentiment stamp sets from Stampin' Up (note: I'm not sure they carry this one any more, but they have other similar ones that I love on pages 166-167 of the 2011-2012 catalogue).

So nice and bright and cheery. I really liked the way it turned out and hope the bride does too!
