Love is in the air...

Although June is the 'traditional' month of weddings, it seems like our part of the country prefers fall weddings. I was an August bride and it was HOT!, so I can see why brides would choose fall for their special day. I never seem to have bridal shower or wedding cards on hand when I need them, so I decided to get a jump start on the fall weddings that we are invited to attend.  I used the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping as a starting point. Here is the sketch...

I changed mine a little, and it is not the most CAS card I have ever made, but I decided that the card theme required a little extra dressing!  I also went through my 'stash' and used up some of my non SU goodies too. You will notice that while basically the same layout, my accessories have changed.

Card Recipe: Cardstock-certainly celery, perfect plum (also DSP), Ink-certainly celery, perfect plum
Stamp Set-Word Play, Accessories-very vanilla seam binding, basic rhinestones, vintage flower, 5 petal flower punch


  1. It's wonderful!!! Love the way you added the buttons on both cards. So pretty.

  2. I like the way you used a tag for your central panel and I love the knot of seam binding. Isn't that a cute sentiment?!!

  3. OHHHH...fantastic! Taking the tag to new limits and that gem on the "I do" is perfect! You've blown this sketch out of the water. I really love your take on it.
    Hugs to you,

  4. These are both really pretty. I love how you used the little tag. Great wedding cards!

  5. Cool cards, Margaret - and very timely too. (My cousin is getting married next week, and I have to make her a card... thanks for the ideas!) Thank you for your comments on my blog, too - we don't actually move to the new house until mid-September, so I have a month or so before I have to complete the packing! :-)


I would love to know what you think! Thanks for commenting!
