Wedding Cards

Good afternoon friends! I hope you're having a great day! We just finished up the second "Just for Girls" crafting class...it was great fun! We had girls starting middle school for the majority of the class, they made tags for their backpacks, personalized notebooks, made a bookmark and a fun little card. They had a great time and really want more...so more fun to come for sure!

I received an order for some wedding cards. I know my supply of those kinds of cards seems to always be non existent...so it was fun order to work on! This is one of the cards that I'll be producing for that order.
First off you'll note the great silver pendant in the center of the card! Wonderful focal point, huh?! It is a Spellbinder "Shapeabilities Pendant" in Spades. It is a fun newer line of die cuts from Spellbinders...they are quite fun to play with!

I ran some brushed Silver paper through the Spellbinders Wizard die cut machine with the pendant die and was just in love with the result! I think that these make fantastic wedding cards, just simple and elegant...very fun!

The polka-dot paper and brushed Silver are made by Making Memories. I layered a piece of the polka-dot paper on some Basic Gray cardstock. The center of the pendant is a separate piece and I attached that to my card, then attached the pendant with dimensionals to the card. I used some White organdy ribbon to make a nice bow, and just attached it to the center of the pendant with a glue dot.

My "For the Newlyweds" sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with with Black Stazon ink.

I love how simple, but how much effort it looks like this was! I'm working on a few others...so I'll share soon. Have a great one! Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Make it great!
