Wedding Cards Using Summer Stories

Wedding season is upon us and if you're like me, you have a ton of weddings to go to this summer. I LOVE weddings and equally LOVE to make wedding cards. Here are a few ideas for making cards the new couple will always treasure. 

For the "Mr. and Mrs." card, I used a sheet of pink polka dot paper from the Summer Stories 6x6 pad and layered a couple cut out cards (from the 12x12 sheet "cards") and adhered them to the top of the base. I then traced the people silhouettes, cut them out and attached them to the card. Using my cricut machine, I cut out a few balloons in the "dots" and "filigree" paper and glued twine to the back of the balloons. I attached the balloons on the card and embellished with die cuts and ribbon. 

Tags are always quick and easy and look adorable tied to any gift.
Make a tag out of the gold glitter damask paper, punch a hole through the top,  lace your ribbon through and make double bow. Attach three die cut banners to the front of the tag and adhere the "Always and Forever" die cut on top of the banners. Embellish with enamel dots.

If you're the bride to be, this card could be given to the maid of honor to thank her for all she has done to help you with your special day.
 For this card, I used the same basic theme of a silhouette cut out holding balloons like I did with the wedding card.  I embellished with a few die cuts, stickers and enamel dots.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
