Silhouette Congratulations


I'm here with another wedding card.  When you think of wedding cards, do you usually think fancy with gold or silver and lots of white?  I used to.  But now I create cards based on the couple's personalities (if I know them well), wedding colors (if I know that) or I take cues from their invitation.  Lately, the invitations we've received have been casual and colorful.  I love that.

So here's my latest wedding card based on the feeling I got from the invitation.  Cute and playful.

I cut the boy and girl (I know there are crafty people out there that call them potty people, but I just can't bring myself to call them that!) with cut files on my Silhouette.  But before I cut them out, I scooted them close to each other and welded their hands together....just like a cute bride and groom would be.  I added pinkish hearts where hearts should be and covered them in Crystal Effects to make them look like epoxy accents.

Their invitation had a mix of pinks and aqua so I added a strip of aqua patterned paper and stamped the sentiment from the Curly Cute stamp set from Stampin' Up!  Then for a simple last touch, some coordinating baker's twine.

I think it turned out so cute and playful.  My challenge to you, if you don't already do it, is to take a different approach when creating wedding cards!

Thanks for joining me at the Table today!
