A "Couple" of Wedding Themed Cards

Hey everyone!!  Sorry I have been MIA the last week or so.  My hubby had knee surgery to repair damage to his knee from a work injury back in December.  Fighting with insurance to get them to pay for it was not so much fun.....but that is a story for a whole different post.  Because I haven't been in my craft room very much this last week, I have a couple of cards to share with you that were in the Cricut Circle magazine back in April.   I just love the blue/white/black color combo on this first card.....

The Card base is cut welded and cut out with my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I used the Creative Memories Divine Wedding cartridge for the bride and groom image.  I stitched around the blue base and added some bling with my Imagininsce i-rock.

For this second card, I created a little gift for the bride to be with some shrinky dink and added it to the tag on the card........
The tag is cut with my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge and I added some journaling and check boxes by hand.  The Congrats sentiment as well as the little heart are both from SRM Stickers.

The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee.  I added some stitches to the patterend paper with my sewing machine and some pen stitching to the tag.  I also added some flat back pearls to the scallops on the tag.
I cut out these flowers with my Cricut and some shrinky dink film.  I colored the film with a Copic marker before I heated them up to shrink them down.  Before they were completely cool, I added a little bit of shape to them, using a towel to protect my hands.  I glued on some half back pearls and then glued them onto some hair pins with some jewelery and metal glue from Aleene's.  I finished off the card with some sheer blue ribbon.

I hope that you have drawn some fun inspiration with these wedding projects that I have shared with you today.

Hugs,
Amy

    Extraordinary projects! The colors are beautiful. I love the extra little gift(hairpins)! I have made many things with shrink film. If you don't mind, I would love to borrow from your idea for hair accessories. My youngest daughter is a girly-girl! Thank you for the inspiration!
