Wedding Bells Are In The Air!

The RSVP to my cousin's wedding read something like this:

  • __ We'll be there with bells on.
  • __ We'll be there without the bells.
  • __ We'll be there, but are undecided on the bells.
  • __ We're unable to attend with or without bells.

Everything about this wedding has been unique.  I can hardly wait to attend to see what other delightful details are included!  And, of course, I responded that I'd be there with bells on.  Well, I won't actually be wearing them…but, my aunt (the mother of the groom) was a little concerned that guests would really bring bells and ring them throughout the ceremony!  She said one gentleman had already threatened to come armed with a cow bell.  Guess that is the risk you take with such a charming invitation!  🙂

Anyway, congratulations to Scott and Devin!  I hope that, bells or no, their day is filled with much love and happiness!  I've been experimenting with a couple of wedding cards in their honor…

Wedding Card Bloom 1  
Wedding Card Congrats 2

Unfortunately, I found out that white cards don't scan (or photograph) very well, but you get the basic idea!  They look much prettier than the harsh, hospital-white photos you see here.

With a color palette of Whisper White and Sahara Sand, I tried to create a card that was both simple and elegant.  The background is appropriately layered with Bride Specialty Paper, with the striped piece sponged in Sahara Sand ink.  (Can you tell I love Bride paper?!  I think it must be featured in 75% of my posts!  What more can I do to convince you it is Too Cool?!  Buy it!)

White Organza Ribbon and half-back pearls (from the Pretties Kit) were used as accents.  (This is somewhat of a sneak peak, because the new catalog has self-adhesive, half-back pearls available individually!  No need to buy a large kit for these awesome embellishments!) 

Card #1 Details: The flower from the retiring Bella's Bloom set was embossed in white on Whisper White card stock, then sponged with Sahara Sand and punched with the Wide Oval punch.

Card #2 Sneak Peak: I used the Congratulations stamp from a brand new stamp set (from the new catalog!) called Perfect Punches.  This set is awesome!  In true Stampin' Up! style, all of the sentiments coordinate with different punches!  Love it!

Well, soon I'll be off to the grand affair!  Did I mention the groom is wearing flip flops?!  Yep!  Should be fun!  Have a great weekend.
