Two wedding cards...

Hello bloggers,

I am trying to enjoy the summer holidays with my girls though from time to time, my patience is tried majorly by little Aleeza (my second one).

I am back pretty soon this time with two wedding cards... for my hubby's secretary who is getting married this Saturday. I gave Aleeza some paints to keep her busy while I made these simple cards.

For the first card I used light grey card stock and have stuck metallic silver handpaper on it.

The Docraft cake stamp has been stamped and heat embossed in silver by Zeenya on metallic creamy white paper and I have decorated the border with my Martha Stewart punch.

The silver ribbon and gems are from my stash while the baby blue ribbon is from Lynn - thank you so much, Lynn! I am impatiently waiting to find more time to start my next batch of charity cards with all that lovely stuff you have sent me...

The sentiment has been embossed with my dear Cuttlebug while the flowers have been punched with Carla craft flower punch.

For the second card, I have used grey card stock as well while the dress, shoes and flowers are from Shirley-Anne. Thank you, dear friend! I have parted with these lovely embellies with great reluctance (you know about my hoarding instincts, right?) Yet, I do think that the bride-to-be deserves it all - she is such a kind lady!

The grey punched hearts have been covered with glitter to match the general theme.

I have used my new Allegro embossing folder on metallic paper for the background.

The sentiment is handwritten but I'm afraid I did not do a good job.

Which card do you like? The first one is rather simple but looks much better in real life.

I will come and visit you all soon... forgive me for not being regular.

So elegant and beautiful! You did a great job, Monica, I'm sure the bride-to-be is pleased with the result. My favorite card is the first one, I think the combination between light blue and silver is just gorgeous!

Knew exactly how you felt with Aleeza. I had to buy my daughter her own stamp sets and ink pads and papers so she could leave my stuffs alone and it seemed to work so far. Lovely quick cards you've made.

There is no way to choose one over the other and BOTH are simply gorgeous! So very pretty and so much detail on both of them Monica. I think that either or both would be wonderful to give her! Love all the shimmer and shine on them. Just beautiful cards. Also glad you found a use for some of that wonderful ribbon too!

Elizabeth said...

Oh, Monica! Both of these cards are lovely! I could not choose which I like the best. You've done a wonderful job on both of them.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
