Bride & Groom Card

Today is the last day of summer semester for my EDS program, and as of this afternoon, I will have completed 60% of it!  {{YIPPEE!!!!}}  Now, you might wonder what that has to do with this post, but I actually do have a connection.  One of the guys in our program is getting married, and I made this card to go along with the Home Depot gift card we all contributed to for him and his new bride.
This card was so easy to make, but I love how elegant it is!  Using my CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge, I just followed the instructions for size and cut, and it did the rest to my White Daisy card stock base.  Since I didn't know their wedding colors, I chose to back the cutout with silver glitter paper.  I debated adding metal flowers from the Brushed Assortment, sequins, or silver shimmer trim, but decided the card looked great as is.
To hide that square inside, I lined the card with piece of White Daisy card stock that was 1/2" less than the card base itself. I stamped "Best wishes" in Slate (from the Artfully Sent collection) and the banner and Mr. & Mrs. from my Celebrate Love stamp set.  (BTW, this stamp set is retiring and is available while supplies last.)

We had to sneak the card around in class to get everyone to sign it before presenting it.  Best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs.!

Great card! Easy and effective, can't beat that combination. And congrats on being 60% done with your Specialist degree requirements, too.
