Weddings, weddings, weddings .......

Those of you who have visited my blog recently will be aware that my Niece was married a few days ago.  I thought I'd share with you the cards and gift wallets I made for the bride and groom. 

I created a gatefold card from a piece of white A4 card, using a Martha Stewart deep edge border punch to create a lacy edge.  White organza ribbon was attached using these lovely roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and filigree hearts cut from white pearl paper using a Martha Stewart punch, and tied in a bow at the front to keep the card closed.

The picture on the right shows the box I made, in which to present the card.  Created from matte silver cardstock and using a spellbinders shapeabilities frame die and some more of the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. 

For the inside of the card I used the adorable bride and groom stamp from Lili of the Valley and also the church stamp from Magnolia.  Using the masking technique so that the church appears to be behind the wedding couple, I then coloured the image with Promarkers and Distress Ink to create the effect of a sky.    The scalloped frame around the image was created with a shapeabilities frame die.  The pink roses on the sides is a Magnolia stamp and I printed a personalised sentiment to add at the bottom.

Finally I created this matching wallet to hold money given as a wedding gift to the happy couple.

I do hope you've enjoyed your visit here today, thank you for your support.  I'll be sharing with you tomorow a further card and gift wallet I made, this one was for my son to give to the bride and groom.

I agree, the idea and the reality - both gorgeous and how much more special to receive a cash gift in something as lovely as this.
