I couldn’t resist the title for today’s post! Yesterday Paul and I attended a wedding for a “nephew” (of sorts) of Pauls. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding. This event is the first of the Happy I Do’s…. Here is the invitation that we received some time ago from the happy couple to be.
When I received the invite back in January, we were in full swing with Sale-A-Bration. Looking at the invitation, I couldn’t help but see the images of the stamp set “Fresh Vintage”.
As I sat down to create their wedding card, I couldn’t resist pulling out the stamp set even though it is now “retired”. I also decided that I really liked the vellum piece from the actual invitation and just had to incorporate it into the wedding card. I also decided to use the satin ribbon that came on the invite! Fortuneately for me, the color of the images on the vellum were an exact match to our Rich Razzleberry cardstock! With a few other accessories and some Very
Vanilla cardstock. The base of the card is vanilla, then I added a layer of Rich Razzleberry textured cardstock, the layer of vellum from the original invite and adorned it with the satin ribbon from the invite and a Mr. & Mrs. greeting from the stamp set called “Tiny Tags”. I punched the greeting out with the 3/4″ x 15/16″ small oval punch and attached it with some linen thread and a vintage trinket pin.
Here is a close up of the greeting!
After getting the front of the card done, I realized that I was not happy that I hadn’t used my Fresh Vintage stamp set yet, so I decided that the inside needed to contain stamping! Here is the inside of the finished card!
I also couldn’t resist giving you a close up of the inside greeting because I included a beautiful rhinestone to the “diamond” position on the ring.
