Wedding Card

One of the women I work with is getting married so I got to make a wedding card. It's not something I do a lot of and don't really have any "just wedding" type stamp sets or anything. One of my cricut cartridges, Stretch Your Imagination, had some wedding images on it. I liked this one. I cut the blackout in Blush Blossom, then the layers in black, white and vellum. I Cuttlebugged the vellum with Swiss Dots and layered it over the white. I had to trim under the bride's arms on the Blush layer. Then I layered that over some retired SU swirl vellum, over PTI Plum Pudding, card base is Lavender Moon. I am down to my last few sheets of those colors and I won't reorder them; they are my least favorite PTI colors. But they're pretty for a wedding card. I used MTME stamp set So Sentimental plus the matching cut file for the sentiment, and the inside sent is from the same set. Border punch and rhinestone brads are SU. I just got back from the shower. She really liked the card---was fascinated by the texture. I had made 2 sets, one with the swirl vellum overlay for the dress, but I'm glad I went with the dots. I took Emily with me; she was so excited. After we'd been there for a while she whispered to me, "I thought there would be a lot more people here, and that we'd have it in a big white tent outside." I told her she'd been watching too much TV and that bridal and baby showers were usually more like this one than like that! She is so funny.
