It’s almost June and time for weddings.  I’ve made several wedding cards this year and wanted to show a few that I made last summer as well.

As I’ve mentioned before, I like to take the invitation and use it to be inspired for making the wedding card.  On this first card I used the actual ribbon from the invitation.  The invitation itself was red, white and black, too.

The invitation which inspired this next card was a very clean and simple one with some blue accents.

Can you guess what the invitation looked like for this next card?  Well if you guessed black and white and traditional, you are right.

On this final card I used the paper insert from the invitation as the main card stock for the backgrounds.  The Wild Hearts backgrounder was almost a perfect match to the border around the text on the invitation.

So the next time you get an invitation, give this a try.  Let the invitation inspire the direction or design or colors of your card.  Or actually incorporate parts of the invitation itself.  It’s really fun!

**I’m still out of town visiting my sons and their families and haven’t had as much time to blog as I originally thought I might.  My little 3 year old granddaughter had her tonsils out on Friday and unfortunately developed pneumonia.  She ended up having to stay in the hospital over most of the holiday weekend.  She is home now and doing much better.**

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy Tuesday!
