Wedding Cards- a little non-traditional

On Saturday my friend's daughter was heading off to a wedding.  About an hour before she was going, she asked me if I could make her a card.  This with me having limited supplies with me.... an definitely no wedding stamps!
So I thought maybe just flowers would do.

Live Laugh Love

This card is made with all Kaisercraft stamps.  The lace along the bottom is from one set, the roses from another and the sentiment a third set.  The lace is stamped with some Golden Glitz ink.  The roses were stamped, coloured with Copics and fussy cut out.   

Once I had finished it, I remembered Sarah loved butterflies, so I quickly made another card so she had the choice of two...

Wedding card

I started by inking up a The Crafter's Workshop stencil with some blue ink.  I had the butterfly stamped so coloured and cut out.  The brown twine was already tied as I had intended to use it the day before but had changed my mine.... so all in all, came together very quickly.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft.   And yes, this is the one Sarah chose!  Not really a traditional wedding card, but she loved that it would be personal!

And wouldn't you know it... on Monday morning I found that I did have a mini Kaisercraft sentiment set that was wedding based!  Didn't know it was in the bottom of my bag.  

Tomorrow is a public holiday in New Zealand, celebrating ANZAC day.  If you are interested in knowing a bit more about it...I did a post last year...HERE

 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

I like both cards, Dawn & how neat you made one that the couple will know is from her because of the butterfly. The gold lace is a great element on the first one!
