Weddings

I was asked to make 2 cards for some co-workers that will be getting married soon. I didn't know any wedding details, so I did what I could. In a way, that was freeing and in another, very nerve wracking! Both cards fit in standard, A2 envelopes.

For the 1st card--I used SU Bella Blue DP. I cut 2 card bases and stacked them. I needed to make sure that everyone at work had room to sign the card. The inner pages were border punched with the SU Scallop punch. The front panel was cut out and vellum sandwiched between the layers. The church was cut using the Cricut. I added Prima flowers and pearl centers. Each page was stamped with a flourish corner, with another Prima flower.  I used some brown, polka dot ribbon to tie all the pages together. Ok, so here are the pics.....



For the next card, my inspiration was the CTMH Butterfly paper from the Life Delights pack. Then I cut butterflies using my Cricut and painted them with CTMH Shimmer paint!! Again, I had to make enough pages that people could sign, so this time I went with an accordian design. I cut bracket corners with the Cricut and put those on the corners. Here it is....


 

I'll try to get some actual scrapbooking on here next time....since my goal was to have a scrapbooking blog!!
