More Wedding Bells!

Yesterday I showed you one of the wedding cards that I made for my parents to take to one of their weddings. Today, I am sharing the card that I talked about that I took over from my Mom! :) When I got to the parents' house yesterday my mom had the maroon base, white layer and black embossed paper out and asked for my help. I kind of took over the card from there *blush*! Sorry Mom! She did ask for my help! hee hee!! Although she loved how it turned out! :) I had to use another of my new WOJ images from the Wedding Collection! I love how the coloring turned out with my Copics, and I think I even got the hang of making the veil on the bride look like it was on top of her hair! That was my personal struggle (making things transparent) while coloring...but I think it turned out very well!

A close up of the bride & groom! I showed this picture to my hubby, and he goes, "what are they sitting in a soup bowl"....hello honey...it's really a carriage! Boys! I tell ya! At least I got a good laugh. So what do you think of my soup bowl....ha ha!
And the finished inside of the card! My mom wanted to use the invitation on the inside so this is what I came up with (of course I blurred out the personal stuff)! I love how it turned out! I used my new borderabilities and they are LOTS of fun! However, when using the one that only embosses (you can see it on the right hand side of the card) it does not cut out the top part. Is that normal? If anyone has any info of these that would be greatly appreciated. My mom recently got the edgeabilities and we are having problems getting them to emboss and cut all the way out too. I am sure it's the operator and not the product! lol!
