Three weddings and a .......using Stampin' Up! ® products

....50th Wedding Anniversary!

After a hiatus on the wedding front over the last couple of years, there has suddenly been a flurry. This weekend is the 2nd in almost as many weeks with the 3rd in a couple of weekend's time.

Those of you who follow me on Facebook will know that I recently went to France for a wedding. I had wanted to post a picture of the card I made for my friend, but my Mum saw it and wanted me to make one for her to give, for my sister's wedding this weekend (hmmmm I really ought to start charging for commissions!!). It is also my Aunt and Uncle's 50th wedding anniversary so that's two family parties one after the other this weekend.

For the theme for her invitations, my Sister had gone with the "Love" logo from the film Philadelphia. I used that as the basis for the colour scheme for my card to her (black and red). I stamped the background with the Travel Journal Wheel Stamp and then punched out some hearts and the word Love using the ABC-123 Sketch Alphabet and Numbers stamp set.

 I added a few rhinestones and spritzed with the vanilla shimmer smooch sprtiz. The envelope is made from Vellum. I used the Mr & Mrs stamp from the Label Love set and I also spritzed with the Vanilla shimmer. What do you think?

And so here is the card I made for my Mum to give to my sister. This is the same as the original card I made for my friend in France. When I made the original card I had been struggling, initially, for inspiration as all the wedding cards I had seen were either really busy (I'm a clean and simple kind of girl) or seemed too old for the people I made them for. Then I saw a particular card on Pinterest, not a wedding card, that I thought I would case (click here to see) but once I got started it kind of evolved more into the card below, which is similar to a different card I had seen (click here to see). 

I hope you like them.
