It's Wedding Time


I seldom have the need for a wedding card, but this summer one of my college roommates from 100 years ago is getting married.  She's been single a long time & I'm so happy they found each other.  I found 2 ribbons in my collection that are very close to the colors on the announcement.  One layer cards are not something I usually make & I didn't actually plan it for this card.  Sometimes things work out better without too much thinking about it. Penny Black makes the most gorgeous background stamps & I chose "peacock feathers" stamped in Encore! Ultimate Metallic Silver with clear embossing powder.  Love the soft silvery shine--not overpowering for this simple card. The sentiment is from Penny Black's "lace delight" set.  The beautiful font was just what I wanted & stamped perfectly in Memento Gray Flannel.  Three white sequins finish it off.  

I used Penny Black's "the bride" for the inside greeting & added just a small row of the "peacock feathers"--leaving room for me to write a personal message.  I put off making this card for weeks--not sure why.  This was a really fun card to make & I hope Cindy will like it.  Thanks for taking time out to visit my blog & hope you've found something to inspire you.

  7. Very pretty, Great!! I'm sure Cindy will love it, especially since you made it so personal with her colors! (I'm not prezactly sure what she can see, being (near as I can figure) 121 years old, but you can tell her what the colors are and how pretty it is!!)

  11. Beautiful wedding card...so classy and elegant and I am sure the new couple will love it. I have to tell you that is was funny to read that you were in college 100 years ago, I too use the phrase a lot so it is nice to see that I am not the only one.

  12. Gorgeous card to celebrate Cindy's marriage; elegant, classy and quite obviously infused with tremendous love and joy from her friend of "100 years"!! She will be thrilled with this; a keepsake for sure!! Being a bride at any time is exciting, but 'later in life' makes it extra special (I was 51 when my husband and I were married!!) Hope you're invited to the wedding and that you have a chance to celebrate this most "merry" event!!

  15. It's intimidating to make a card for a special occasion like this - you know these are the cards that are saved & taken out years from now, and I know that makes ME put it off! I love the colours - the bright pops of ribbon are fabulous. Congratulations to your friend!
