All About the Dress!

I first made this card as a thank you card designed for the lovely woman who was so helpful in finding just the right dress for my daughter's wedding!  (See pic at the end of post.)  She was married a couple of years ago, but when I saw the challenge at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie, I had to make it again with some variation!

My son's friend is getting married in a country style wedding in a barn.  I chose to use the bride's colors and went with a bit of a rustic motif for a wedding card.  This card style could be used as thank you's for bridesmaids or shower cards, also!

I'll attempt to describe my process in Design Space with the pictures below.  Please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions or something is unclear!

Papers:  CTMH Kraft and Lagoon Cardstock; White was a scrap piece; The Paper Studio Vellum; Kraft paper for envelope

Ink:  CTMH Chocolate

CTMH Stamp:  Make a Wish

Folder:  CTMH Flowers

Embellishments:  Bo Bunny Double Dot Jewels; Darice Twine; Scrap Lace; 3-D Tape

Finished Card and Envelope

  9. Wow, this is really an amazing card Katrina! I love how you attached, welded and sliced that beautiful dress right to the card! I love the colors and the bit of rustic of this card. Our son and DIL had their wedding outside and then the reception in a barn at a bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, PA. It was lots of fun and I love more low keyed weddings like that. Congrats to your son!!! Hugs, Brenda
