Card #21: Wedding Card

May is not only a month full of graduations, it’s also a VERY popular month during which to get married.  I went to a wedding last weekend of a couple fairly new friends, and it was fantastic.  The pastor referenced The Princess Bride and Doctor Who during his message (even pulling a sonic screwdriver from his suit pocket!), and the groom and bride both wore Converse All-Star sneakers with their formal attire.  And today one of my best friends from my early 20’s is getting married in Wisconsin.  Sadly, I didn’t get to go to his wedding, but they are having a reception here in a couple weeks.

So, as I was trying to decide what kind of card to make this week, I was browsing through my drawer of embellishments, saw my “love” file, and remembered, hey, I need a card for them!  I hope my friend doesn’t read my blog, at least this week, or he’ll know what card he’s getting.  Oh well, it’s the gift that matters more anyway, right?  Lol!

I’m not sure why I like the sparkly, fancy silver paper with the kind of grunge-looking heart paper, but I do.  I was going to use some scraps of pretty, white paper that had a satin fabric design on it, but they just weren’t big enough to do anything with.  The heart paper was leftover from a scrapbook page, I believe, and I scavenged the silver wavy stuff from an old invitation my family had received in the mail.  No, I am not above scavenging like that.  As long as it looks good and is reusable, might as well!  The white ribbon was a last-minute addition, actually added while writing this post, because the joint between the two papers just looked awkward.  I used a spray adhesive to tack down the ribbon and the pictures were taken while the glue was still wet, so I’m hoping it gets a little less see-through once it’s dry.  The ringbearer pillow is from a Jolee’s Boutique collection I picked up on clearance at Joanns for a buck.  I think I’ve said this before, but I love clearance shopping.  🙂  Inside, the card has a simple “congratulations” stamp in black.

If you do read this, Joe, congratulations to you and Katy, and I can’t wait to see you in a couple weeks!
