Wedding Card

Thought I would share this wedding card I made since it is that time of year. Anyone else getting bombarded with wedding invitations?! To make this lovely card, I sketched a dress shape onto beautiful shimmery paper and cut it out, then made a skirt overlay of vellum. The bride's wedding colors were chocolate brown and pink, so of course the card is brown and the bouquet is pink. :) The card base is also a shimmery cardstock. It is so, so pretty in real life!

This is an example of how a little elbow grease can save you money when scrapbooking. A little wedding dress embellishment like this would have cost $3 or so to buy, but it cost me next to nothing because I used a piece of scrap paper. Even the little rosettes are repurposed---they were on the collar of an outfit someone gave my daughter. Hated the rosettes, so I picked them off and added them to my scrap stash. Glad I got to use them!
