As promised, here is the wedding card that I made for my lovely sister and new brother in law for their wedding. It was touch and go whether I would actually be able to find the time to make the card before the big day, and many times I wished that I had settled on a more simple, straight forward card :) However, I made the time and I was really pleased with the result - I think the bride and groom were too, but they were a little overwhelmed at the time!
As you can see, I used supplies from the wedding stationery, so that it was totally co-ordinated (if you knew my sister, you would understand!!!) It is a large, three fold (A5) card which I tied up with ribbon.
I was very brave (although I must admit to practising first!) and splatted with Mister Huey on the kraft card, just to break it up a bit and to let the words do the talking. This is the first inside page of the card.
And here is the inside :) Once open, the bunting hangs between the two outer sides of the card.
I used some photos that I had printed from when Jo and Jamie came down to visit us a while ago and stuck one on each inside page. A pair of love birds a tag, a ticket and an appropriate sticker and the first page was done.
The middle page I kept quite simple and sewed a variety of small buttons in a heart shape around my favourite of the photos - time consuming but really effective and so pretty.
The third page is quite busy, but I love all the layers! I wanted to include a glassine bag, and filled it with all sorts of hearts, some punched, some sequin type hearts and all the little circles that had come out of the tags that I die cut for the place settings for the wedding!
I nearly forgot to leave some space for writing the card, but stamped congratulations on the back and we all wrote a message to the happy couple!
