A very close friends daughter is getting married. I held this little girl when she was a baby and now in her late 20's she has finally found the love of her life. The 2 of them have been through thick and thin with a few bumps in the road since high school and their relationship has survived. Last year they got engaged and we all marked our calendar saving the date. Then here comes COVID. Plans get re-arranged. Though they are still getting married on the planned date, only immediate family will be attending and they plan to celebrate next year. I still wanted to make them a card and this is what I came up with. I used my favorite white shimmer paper for the entire card. I'm kind of a hoarder of shimmer paper lol. Its my favorite paper to use but I only use it on real special cards.
I noticed the pearls didn't show up well in the first picture so I added a close up of the flowers. That little touch of green is the only color added to an all white card. I still have to ad the sentiment and then I'll be done.
Pretty simple and fits in a 5x7 envelope. One piece of cardstock is 5x7 then the next is 5x6. On the 5" side of both of these I used a Martha Stewart border punch. Punching both sides of both pieces of cardstock. Then on the 5x7 one I scored each side at 1.5. On the 5x6 one I scored both sides at 1". Then I embossed a piece of card that was 4x6.5. After embossing I scored the long side at 5". When folded back it gets sandwiched between the 2 larger pieces. Hope this makes sense. To decorate the front I used various Anna Griffin dies and some Tim Holtz leaves dies. The happy couple are total outdoor people and work in that type of environment so leaves made sense to me.
Simple but elegant. I am so sad that I will not be able to attend. I cried at her sisters wedding and I wanted to cry at hers. To wait a year seems so unfair. Stupid COVID.
Well til next time...............................
