Okay, so I was reading this thread about some couples competing to win a dream wedding. Somewhere in the thread, people were saying, hey, let’s make wedding cards for all the couples! And I thought, “boy, that would be fun!!” So I set out to make twelve wedding cards, which was pretty silly of me and crazy too, ’cause it usually takes me a looooong time to make one card!! Also, I still had to make two birthday cards and one graduation card, all requested by my mom, and a thank-you card requested by my brother. But did I make those cards requested by my loved ones? Noooooo. I had my heart set on making these wedding cards for strangers (where are my priorities?). Well! So I made the first one:
and then I thought, “well, I have to make eleven more…hm. Let’s eliminate the different colours of green, pink, and orange – let’s just make it all purple – that would make it go faster” So here is the second card with the hedgehog’s surroundings in pale purple:
…and the other bonus to the all-purple theme was, I could use up some of the light purple cardstock that I bought years and years ago!
I went back to the first card and added a fun little hedgehog in the inside:
I drew a veil on this hedgehog, and then used a white gel pen for the veil and flowers. Then it occurred to me that this looks really neat, for a lot less work, which matters a lot because I still had ten cards more to go!
So, this is what the remaining ten cards look like:
*shamed grin* Well, this is as simple as it gets! I like the pale purple better than the grey for this, because the white spots show up better. This was very quick and simple, but it still took me a loooooooong time to get those cards done, because I still had to write messages on the inside and address the envelopes! I think this was just a project I used as procrastination of making the cards I need to make! *another shamed grin* Oh well. I really, really love these Penny Black images!! They are the clear stamp versions. I bought all the clear Penny Black stamp sets that I could find at Paper Garden Projects when they were having a sale! These stamps are not made of high-quality photopolymer, but they stamp well nevertheless.
The sentiments (“Best Wishes” and “Congratulations”) are from Flourishes LLC’s Flourished Words stamp set (which is high-quality photopolymer). This set is so versatile! For the “Best Wishes” on the first two cards, I actually cut apart the phrase so that I could position the words in a diagonal instead of having it in a straight line.
