I was recently asked to make 2 wedding cards for 2 sisters attending the same wedding. They gave me a piece of beautiful lace, a piece of burlap and some leopard-print crepe paper, along with the bridalshower invitation which included a Mason jar, plank floor panel, a banner, and sunflowers. They told me the bride and her bridesmaids were wearing purple dresses and everyone was wearing cowboy boots! YeeHaw!
With a lot of great suggestions and borrowed stamps from my friend Mary Anne, I was able to put this together. I downloaded a handled mason jar image from Glenda's World in a purple color, printed it and fussy-cut it, popping it up on foam tape. I used some tiny tags from SU! that were gold heat-embossed for their initials and the Mr & Mrs tag hanging from the top of the jar. The flowers were from my stash, and I used a SB die for the green stems and leaves. The tiny gold-embossed heart on the jar was done with a Lil Inker die and the "L" is a sticker. The plank floor was a piece of random dsp from my stash. The boots were from a GinaK stamp set and they were fussy cut and popped up on foam tape too. I managed to get a piece of that lace and leopard print on the jar as well as the flower centers, and added a couple tiny purple hearts & initial stickers to the tiny tags to finish the card. Whew!
They're all gold embossed and the sentiment is from SU!
This may have been the biggest challenge I've had all year as far as making a custom card goes, but both sisters are happy with the results! Thanks again Mary Anne for all your help and loaning me the perfect stamps!
Wishing everyone a very happy Labor Day today! I hope you all enjoy the extra day off to relax and have fun! Thanks for stopping by!
