Hey there, I've got a lot of pictures to share with you today! My hubby's niece just got married and this is the card/box I made for her. It's a little different than what I normally create. I love to color and, well, there isn't any on this project.
Maegan's favorite color is purple (she even named her daughter Violet) so I worked in just enough with the sponging to make it pop. I started with something totally different...gorgeous patterned paper in shades of lavender, but it just didn't come together. I'm glad I didn't force it because I really like how this card turned out!
The sentiment is from an Our Craft Lounge set called The Journey. It's a little unconventional for a wedding card...but it's the perfect message for the newlyweds! The flowers are all My Favorite things dies, the pins are Maya Road and the other beads are from my stash. I showed my hubby the finished card and he said it had a lot of bling. I say pfft...really, is that even possible? LOL!
Here's the inside...the embossed pocket holds a gift card.
Every paper crafter knows it's all about the presentation; am I right? *grin* An envelope would just not do for this beauty, so I set to work creating a little box. The sentiment on the box top was computer generated (it's the names of our niece and her groom and the date of their wedding). The layers used on the card were also used on the box top, another seam binding bow and one tiny rose and leaf complete the box.
I guess that's about it for this one. Enjoy your day!
