With This Ring......

This was the big day! My brother, Jeff, tied the knot! I never thought this day would come! It was a beautiful wedding -- and now I have a new sister! How fun! (Pictured from left to right: my little sis, Jenna - me - Jeff - & my little bro, Jason)

This is the wedding card that I made franticly this morning! I could just see myself arriving to my own brothers wedding 20 minutes late and it was stressing me out! But... we made it with plenty of time to spare -- thanks mainly to my husbands driving skills (aka lead foot). This time I wasn't a back seat driver! No complaining here! I made a 'Cami' trifold card made with this adorable bella stamp and Cosmo Cricket paper. You can find a tutorial for this card HERE. The fella and his bella are stamped with Versafine black ink, colored in with Prismacolor Pencils, & blended with mineral spirits. I added a Sakura Stardust pen to give glitz to the veil and parts of the dress. I also added some bling on the veil with a teeny tiny diamond gemstone (fake of course!) ;) The scalloped rectangle was made by stamping 2 scalloped Mega squares on top of one another. If you get a chance - check out the tutorial for these cards. They really are simple to make once you see it. Once you do one, it's easy to alter it to make it your own.

Here is a picture of what the card looks like when it's open. I was also really happy to find out that some of the new In Colors by SU match the Dutch Girl collection perfectly! (soft sky & river rock). A slit punch keeps the card in place when it's folded.

This is a matching gift card holder that I made. I found these little cases at Michaels in the dollar bin! (Love the dollar bin!) This one was hot pink with yellow polka dots... but with a little sticky tape, ribbon, and paper..... Voila! Too cute! The bottom half is already silver, so it's quick and easy to alter. The inside comes with a clear insert to hold the gift card.

And here are the bride & groom!!!! This picture was taken right after they were pronounced husband & wife. The picture is a little blurry because Nicki had to do a little dance! They're too cute!
