Wedding Wishes for a Wonderful Summer of Memories!

So, What is your summer looking like?

Ours is one of travel, wedding, travel, wedding, travel, wedding, travel, wedding, and on and on and on until the weekend after Labor Day!

You got it - we are on the road for weekend weddings from June through mid-September with only two weekends unaccounted for!  That is only because we will be on vacation those weekends...this schedule is worse than my business convention schedule ever was!

So my workshop has been busy with making wedding cards for all the brides and grooms along with sewing rompers for the "3 Amigos" so they have matching Disney Wear when we hit Main Street USA !  Grandma sure likes to keep busy :)

If you like this card, it is about as simple as they come:

Pick a color and run with it.  I chose a light lavender cardstock for the card itself. 

Cut your cardstock to 5.5" x 8.5".  Score down the middle of the card at 4.25"

Cut another piece of white cardstock - you choose the size*** as long as it is smaller than the 4.25" x 5.5" folded cardstock that you just did.  ***mine was 3" x 3".

Stamp your pretty little image - I chose a brown dye based ink.

Copic markers colored in the small flowers.  My Pink Pan Pastels did the outer edges of the dress and I used a Blue Pan Pastel for the edges of the white cardstock and some of the outer edges of my lavender cardstock.

I then used double stick tape and layered the stamped card onto the lavender cardstock.

GLITTER GLUE!  The best invention yet! 

Insert a piece of wax paper between the fold of the lavender cardstock and using your lavender, blue or crystal glitter glue tube***I used crystal on the white and blue on the lavender, outline your cardstock on the edges.

Let dry. 

WALA!  You are done and ready to put on your party dress and eat cake!

Hope this helps all of you to remember that keeping it simple, in cards as well as in life makes for a happier life!

Good words for the bride and groom as well, don't you think?

Hugs until my tires wear out, my dancing feet are worn out and my tummy is full of cake and happy memories of beautiful brides, handsome grooms, toasts a plenty and smiles for all.
