Wedding Cards

My Mother-in-law asked me the other day if I could make 2 wedding cards for her. I was thrilled that she wanted me to make some creations for her to give away! That really means a lot to me that she likes my projects (as crafting isn't her kind of hobby)!

Amy Sheffer of Pickled Paper Designs is one of my favorite blogs to cruise around! Her creations are just amazing to me! When I saw THIS card on her blog, I was very inspired, and came up with the following cards. I used the same layout for both cards. Cardstock and dp is SU. Used my MS & EK Success border punches. Swirl punch was also used for behind the flowers. Ribbon, charm, tulle and flowers are from my stash. I didn't have a wedding stamp so I hope the "love" charm is enough! And then we have the finished inside! If you look close at the top...I glued my image the wrong way (which I am sure no one will notice....but it bothered me and it was already glued down and I wasn't going to wreck the whole card just to try and move it.) The next card I made sure to mount it correctly! LOL!

And then the second card. I used my nesties as in the above card. Cherish stamp is from a SU set. I also used my Cuttlebug embossing folder on this one!
And a similar inside!
I hope that my Mother-in-law likes them, and they meet up to what she wants. I know this is a different kind of card for me (as I usually create with people on my cards....I love coloring)! I would love to hear what you think!

Thanks for stopping by!
