Wedding Card

Today we are going to make a white on white on white wedding card.
I used the dotted folder to make the textured background.
I used a heart sizzix to cut out the heart and then the Stampin up Doily die for the inside of the heart.
I used 2 sizes of flower punches, and on the large one, I punched border punches for the edges of the petals. I used brads from hobby lobby for the centers.
I used a martha stewart butterfly punch.

I haven't decided if I want a saying on the front of the card or not, my daughter is getting married this year and I want to make some awesome invites for her to choose from. Be sure and check over at for the February Challenge.

Valentines Day Card

I was surprised by my husband this morning. He usually leaves for work before I wake up, I went to get coffee and in front of the coffee pot was this card and a bottle of wine.

He had my friend, who is a stamping up rep, make the card for him and he wrote the poem on the inside.
32 Years
32 years since the day you were asked,
The words that made your respond "Are you serious?"
It meant a lot to me then and even more now,
32 years later all I can say is wow!
Some people said that we wouldn't last,
Now 32 years later, they're in the past.
I've loved you through good and loved you through bad
But 32 years later I remember the good times we've had.
They say love is blind but my heart is sincere,
As we start off this 32nd year.
I love you today way deep in my heart.
I still remember those words "Til death do us part."
With this wine I have given I offer a toast
To 32 more years with you as my host
Happy Valentines Day,

My husband is still as romantic as he was 32 years ago, he still surprises me with candy, flowers and romance even when it's not valentines day. He actually proposed marriage to me 32 years ago on Valentines Day, and on our 25th valentines day, he asked me to renew our vows and gave me a ring, and told me he already had the church reserved for Aug. 6, which is our wedding anniversary. I think I'll keep him forever. Hope you have a great Valentines day.

This card is a fun card that adults or children would love for their birthday, I used the swirl embossing folder on the white background and matted all the items with dark green, used the same color ribbon and even though I added a pin with a dragonfly bead it still is mostly a masculine card. I have several of these made, fo different occasions to send to my male relatives and friends. The image and sentiment is from The Angel Company.
