Wedding Wishes

I needed a card for a dear friend's granddaughter who just got married over the weekend.  I wanted something classy and elegant...but not too stuffy...and wanted it flat so that it would easily mail.  This is what I came up with and I was soooo happy with it!  I will definitely be making a few more of these!

Oh so clean...oh so simple...oh so much white space (which is usually tough for me!...I usually have to stick a ribbon or a flower or a gem or a button when I see oodles of white space....but NOT THIS TIME!)

I basically cut out the daisy flower with a Simon Says Die on the white cardstock and then cut it out again with the blue paper and DRUM ROLL PLEASE....inlaid the flower!  I just loved it! Woohoo...so cool!!!

I used a Lawn Fawn sentiment which I stamped with the same color ink as the paper (Stampin' Up's Island Indigo)....matted it on some more blue and put it on a white card base.  HOW EASY WAS THAT?!

This card literally took me less than 10 minutes to make...which included finding where I put that die! LOL!

But I was so happy with it when I was done.

Don't you just love when things work for you sometimes!  All the time?

  1. Like the Clean Simple CAS look of this. Especially like that you cut out the flower out of the white, then cut out of blue & put the blue inside the white cut out area. I just finished making a Wedding Card for Wed post. Ck it out tomorrow and you can cut & paste the challenges you want to enter from mine to enter yours in.
