Welcome to Greeting Card Monday Episode 04.
Today I bring to you a greeting card that I made for a friend’s wedding three weeks ago. I was his RA 5 years ago. That number is crazy to me.
Here’s a little bit about how the process went. I first pulled out the wedding invitation for a little bit of color inspiration. It’s a beautiful and delicate pattern of pink, green, and white.
I went through all of my paper looking for a pattern of pink, green, and white and everything I found looked was super feminine. If I had known the bride instead of the groom I probably would have gone for it, but I couldn’t bring myself to give the groom a pink and green card – even if he had agreed to the wedding colors.
Then I went through all of my stickers and quote embellishments. I found an entire packet of vellum love quotes that I had been holding onto and the first one I found said “meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over.” And after reading their wedding story, it sounded perfect!
It was a beautiful wedding ceremony with incredibly music and EVERYBODY was smiling that day. It was also pretty adorable to get to talk to his grandmother about how awesome he is. Check out the card – -
my favorite thing: the fact that I found blue background paper that incorporated hints of red into it to bring out the red in the quote.
the challenge: cutting around the inverted-rounded corners on the quote
Have you been to any great weddings lately?
