A Couple of Special Wedding Cards

At the start of the month my nephew got married and I really wanted to make him and his lovely bride a very special card. The bridesmaids were wearing lavender so that a place to start. And then I saw the second card in THIS post by Dena from Dena's Stamping Corner - and just knew it was the card I wanted to CASE. Dena is an amazingly talented crafter - and a lovely lady to boot - so make sure you pop in and say hi and check out her AMAZING eye candy! Thanx soo much for the inspiration Dena.

My image is from Lily of the Valley and the textured background paper is by Cristina Re.

The bride and groom...Congratulations Simon and Beth
Me and the kids - unfortunately DH was away on a business trip and my son Toby has a thing about having his picture taken!!!


A week later my TPS and MDUC teamie Fran got married and this is the card I made for her and her handsome groom.

I knew I wanted to start with Marie Antoinette from Kraftin' Kimmi because Fran had mentioned that HER dress was similar - now all I needed was a groom. I decided on Kraftin' Kimmie's dapper dude Chester - which the gorgeous Kellie from Tickled Pink Stamps ordered in especially for me - luckily I gave her PLENTY of notice - and don't they make a FABULOUS couple!!!! The happy couple have gorgeous twin boys and I just couldn't leave them out - so I used Owie from CC Designs and stamped him twice - even though Fran's boys aren't identical twins I figured she'd forgive me for making them appear to be. I popped "Dallas" and "Levi" on the inside of the card all ready to pop out and say BOO.

Wishing Simon and Beth - AND - Fran and Glenn all the VERY best for a long and happy life together!

Both cards are just lovely. The lucky couples must have been so pleased to get a Debbie card!!!! Nice pic of you and the kids, daughter is beautiful, and can understand that Toby is reluctant to have his pic taken, it's his age!!

Oh Debbie! Both of these cards are as special as can bE!!!! I just LOVE weddings! xxD

Lynda said...

I so love the Christina Re paper. I have some in pink and a finer one in white....can't use them yet tho...LOL!! The Lavender/White is special and the lace is the perfect finishing touch.You have a magical gift for knowing how many flowers to add to a project to finish a card off perfectly. The 2 cards are so vastly different, but loved equally. Well done. nice family pic too BTW!! ooxx
