Wedding Cards

Congratulations On Your Wedding
Today I'm going to share four wedding cards I created for a friend. For this card I used my new Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Die. I picked this die up while on vacation and I think I'm going to use it alot. Out of all four cards, I can't decide if this one is my favorite or this next one.
I can't make up my mind! I like the patterned paper I used for this card. It's from TPC Studio called Wedding Silhouette Tapestry Stripe. I paired a Creative Imaginations brad I had in my stash with a Hero Arts flower. Behind the flower I added some tulle that I inked and then inserted a Maya Road Trinket Pin in Vintage Black Pearls. I love those pins! I'd been searching for them for awhile and found them at Archiver's. Here's a closer look at the flower.

For this card, I had to get some black in. It just wouldn't be like me to create some cards and not use black. My friend gave me free rein to do whatever I wanted. I even made mention to her that I like to use black and she said she was fine with whatever I came up with.
May Your Love....
For the leaves I used a Sizzix die I have called Branch with Leaves. The sentiment is called "Love Continues To Grow" from Versus Rubber Stamps.
May Your Love...inside
For the inside of this card I used a Hero Arts stamp and an EK Success Edge Punch called "Brackets".
Congratulations/Best Wishes
For the fourth card I didn't use a stamped sentiment. I thought the patterned paper I used from Best Creation Inc worked well since it had sentiments on it. I did use a Hero Arts stamp called Dot Flourishes. I stamped it on the cardstock using Versamark and added some Stampendous Dot Sparklers.

That's it for the wedding cards. In my next post I'll share the sympathy cards I made.
