A Wedding Card

Hello everyone! I hope you all are doing well. Busy here. Too busy to feel like crafting.

We took a road trip this past weekend to Cleveland for a wedding. Twenty hours in three days was a lot of driving!! We had a fabulous time, though with extended family. As I get older and the kids grow, it is harder and harder to get together in a big group like that unless you have a planned function. When we do get together, it is so much fun.

Today I am sharing the wedding card I created for the bride and groom.

I started out by cutting a piece of white card stock into card a 4 1/2" by 6 1/4" base. I then took a piece of white card stock that was cut into 4 1/4" by 6" and embossed the top right and bottom left corner. I did not have an embossing sleeve that was this size so I improvised by going up half way to get the area I wanted embossed. I then turned the embossing sleeve around to do the other side.

I then adhered a sheer white ribbon to the back of the embossed card front and adhered it to the card base. I used a Spellbinder's Nestabilities die (Labels One) to create a label that I embossed Paper Smooches champagne glasses in platinum. I then layered the champagne label over Spellbinders "Decorative Labels One" die cut.

The last step was to tie the ribbon and add little dots of diamond Stickles in strategic places on the card.

This card did not take me that long to make and I am really happy with how it came out. I do want to apologize for the photos, though. It was not a nice day and I had to take the pictures so I could fill out the card!!

I also decorated the envelope a bit. I used PTI's "Soft Stone" die ink with their "Garden Gild" stamps from the Make it Market Kit Mini and Stickles to jazz the envelope up a bit.

Well, that is all for today. I hope you have a great Friday!!
