Happy Monday and a Wedding Card

I hope everyone's Mondays are going well. Monday is my least favorite day of the week because it means I have another five days before the weekend!! I also am going to see "Wicked" on Thursday and cannot wait. I am going with some friends I graduated from High School with. We try to go out once a month to dinner, which easier said then done. They are my tried and true friends, though, and make me LAUGH when I need it.

Today I am sharing a wedding card I created for a co-worker. The theme of the wedding was "travel." My co-worker said the invitations were boarding passes and the RSVP's were luggage tags. Too cute!! She wanted a special card that went along with that theme. Below is what I created for her:

I started by softly stamping the white card base with a retired Stamping Up! script background stamp in gray ink. I then inked the edges in Pumice Stone and Stormy Sky distress ink. The post card and the envelope were pre-made embellishments that I found at Michael's and just had to have. I am so glad that I bought them because I found out that I do not own that much travel stuff!!

The tag is a Lawn Fawn die cut, which I stamped using Paper Trey Ink's "Grand Ampersand" set. I then inked the edges with Vintage Photo and Pumice distress ink.

I die cut the red hearts using a Simon Says Stamp! heart die. The little silver hearts are from Pretty Pink Posh.

I have to admit that this card severely intimidated me. I do not usually take special orders for cards because a) getting time during the week to craft is often difficult and b) if I don't have an idea, I am up a creek!! Once I figured out what I was doing, this card came together in no time, though.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by.
