A Wedding Card

Last weekend we were honoured to have been invited to a friend's son's wedding. We have know the groom since he was about 4 and have watched him grow into a lovely young man. His friendship with my son also spawned a wonderful friendship between us parents. 

For the card I made for them I used Mo Manning's Wedding Couple B. I chose this version over Mo's Wedding Couple purely and simply because the groom's hairline was better suited to the real life groom.

I cropped the image a little and asked my friend what colour suit her son was wearing and what colour flowers his bride would be carrying. This gave me my colour scheme. A simple embossed background behind the image gave the whole card an added sophistication.

Monster Stickers by Mo Manning

When Mo showed us her new sticker range including these fabulous Valentine Monster Stickers I knew they would be perfect to make a card for my hubby for our recent anniversary. They may be designed for Valentine's Day but they can certainly be used for other occasions.

Given that they are digital files I had the freedom to re-size. I made a full set - a card, a matching envelope with patterned insert, and some stickers to seal the envelope. I used printable sticker sheets for the stickers and cut one sheet using my Cameo, and the other sheet I cut using a circle punch. I'm really looking forward to personalising my envelopes with these in future.
