Ah, weddings. Don’t you just love them?
They are such a special time in a person’s life. And, of course, so should the card and or gift! My post today is no different.
A longtime friend, Carolyn, now lives in Iowa. She used to live in Texas where we met through our daughters who attended preschool together – oh wow, some nearly 20 years ago! (Did you know that Carolyn??) It just literally dawned on me as I am writing this post! Gah!
Anyway, we’ve been friends for a long time. Her three girls have grown, my two have grown. Her middle daughter is getting married today! I am so happy for them. All the photos and writings of the couple to be – they seem so happy – so in love. He has been an active part in all the wedding planning too, it’s just been so sweet.
When I received the lovely wedding announcement I went into creative mode. I always like to match my cards as much as possible to the theme of whatever the occasion is. This is no different. And, it’s a wedding, so it has to be special.
I went with something simple. Something elegant. Something freakin’ gorgeous! I used the Pop’n Cuts Base to create a gift card holder. Take a look below. It matched the wedding announcement and response card perfectly. I was so thrilled with how it turned out. I think they will be as well.
A little on the making of the card. The base of the flower is a punched scalloped circle. It’s layered with little flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack until it was all filled. I curled them up on the tip of a pen for added dimension. Tombow helped secure them to the base. The Bird Punch made for some nice leaves to add to the flower. And, you can’t go wrong with the Designer Frames Oval as a background. It’s just stunning.
A very special card for a very special couple. Hears to many blessed years of marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Lange! I am so happy for you Allison and Patrick. And, for my dear friend Carolyn, and Dale, that their daughter found her special someone!
