Weddings

My friend's daughter is getting married in May, so I need a wedding card and a shower card. Another friend has a wedding to go that month as well. I'm making cards for both of us, and it's such fun. The first card was done with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder. The flower is turned upside down and a portion cut away to reveal a wedding dress. Isn't it the most lovely idea? Nooo I didn't think of it. I got the idea from Amy Celona. I just changed it a bit to reflect the colors this bride is using in her wedding. The greeting is from Stampin' Up's Love & Laughter. I just cut rectangles and used a corner punch to make it look... well... better.


Nope, didn't come up with this one either!! The template for this card is from Lynn Pratt and you can get it here: http://stampndesigntemplates.blogspot.com/2010/08/does-it-work.html   I found this pretty puffy paper in Hobby Lobby along with the pearls. Don't you just love 40% coupons and half off sales?
The stamps on the cards below are from Stampin' Up's Love & Laughter. I used cardstock from Hobby Lobby -open stock, and a Martha Stewart punch gave me the lacy look. I also used some corner punches in the last two. The punch that makes the notches, is from Marvy Uchida and the other one doesn't have a company name on it - it's very old. The inks were Cat's Eyes, Encore Metallics and Distress. I just chose pretty purples, I don't worry about them being the same color to match. I know Stampin' Up people all over the world are probably gasping! No offense, but it just doesn't matter to me. I kinda like the fact that the colors blend rather than match. I guess I'm quirky like that! lol

This is my least favorite..the die from Cheery Lynn was supposed to look like a cake stand.... but hmmm not so much. I think I'll take it off and put something else there.
