I Do!

    The Inspiration Challenge today at Splitcoast is to find inspiration at Uncle Dan's the Great Outdoor Store.   Recently I have had several requests for Wedding cards.....I enjoy making these type of cards, but more often than not I create 'white on white' cards when I make one. Seeing this sandal I was inspired to finally make a wedding card that wasn't ALL white and I decided to follow through one some other inspiration using a design I came across while "Pinning'  Here. 
     Following the pinning trail led me to the very talented Tilly McLeod who I discovered is a fellow Splitcoaststamper.  Not wanting to recreate the wheel, so to speak, I pretty much CASED her card from Pinterest.  I took a little time and several templates to get the right fit and size (and you can bet your sweet bippy I saved those final templates....I have pushed those kinds of things into the scrap pile and lost them way too often).  

    If I were to make this again -- and I probably will -- I would use black linen paper for the tuxedo and might consider some glimmer mist on the brides dress....don't you love the ideas that come to you when you finally create a project, guess that's what keeps me playing in my stamp room.  
     I was just thinking that the men's sandal that inspired me might look kinda nice with this tuxedo if it was a beach wedding.....maybe they could find a matching pair.

Supplies:  Black and white cardstock, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Ribbon and bow, Recollection rhinestones, scissors


  1. Beautiful card and great idea. I love it.

  2. This is so so pretty. I totally love the design. Well done!


  3. WOW! You know I love shaped or other nontraditional cards and this one is a show stopper! LOVE what you did to recreate your own happy couple....absolutely darling and I'm glad you save the template, 'cause I will want to borrow it! LOL!


Thanks for visiting, your comments bring a smile to my face. Have a great day!!
