Spring weddings.. new beginnings for brides Kate, Kami and Claire!

Kate: As I often do, part of the wedding invitation was incorporated onto this first wedding card.

The rounded corners from the invitation were also copied on two corners of the card.

I have also entered Kate’s wedding card into this week’s challenge at “Stampin’ Sisters in Christ” to use soft pastels on your card or project.

Kami: On the second invitation, there was no part of it that could be used for the card.  The invitation was completely black and white with a strong graphic, so I drew from that for the wedding card design.

Claire: For the third wedding card a large floral area of the invitation was cut out and used.  The frame on the invitation piece was completed by using a matching Copic to draw the lines on the card base.

Claire married a farmer and the reception that my husband and I attended Saturday night was very rustic.  It was adorable with burlap table coverings and hanging lanterns.. like a hoedown.. very fun.  And it was complete with a Holstein cow wedding cake!!  Here is the card I made for her bridal shower.

What a busy happy time for these beautiful young women!
