Wedding Card Budget

budgeting for a wedding can be the nightmare for any new couple starting out, so, I wanted to create a wedding invitation at a low cost yet keeping the elegance that weddings insist on.
I started by using a matchbook fold, and embossing the top front portion with the Victorian A2 embossing folder, for the fancy edging I used the EK success double scallop punch then added 3 blossoms to the top left corner


Attention to detail...

3 die cut blossoms and a cuttlebug A2 Victorian folder made the main focal point of the card and a dot of golden rod stickles to accent the centre of the blossoms, making the professional bridal finish that every bride wants.



Stamped wording and oval punches from Stampin Up a couple of foam pads on the back make a catch to hold down the the top folded card.

Hi there Jak

Your timing with this card was absolutley perfect for me, as my daughter received a wedding proposal on New Year's Eve, and yours truly has been lined up to make the invitations etc.

Your card is absolutely PERFECT! I love it, and will be showing it to my daughter later, in the hope that she will like it as much as I do.

Hugs Judi xx

Very classical and stunning. This goes into my 'favorites' folder. May I ask...can you explain a little further how you did the foam pads? Are they velcro so that you can open and close the invitation? Thanks so much.
