Wedding Thank You Cards
My brother is getting married next month. They have chosen the Seattle Seahawks colours for the wedding: Lime Green, Navy and White. I'm in the process of making 50 of these cards with printed envelopes, stamps and mailing labels for everyone from whom I can get addresses. The bride didn't sent out invitations, only an email link to a web invite for everyone so there is no list of all the mailing addresses. Hopefully this will make thank yous a little easier.
The idea for this card was inspired by RBright found here on Splitcoaststampers. I really liked the straight lines and the circle medallion around the Elegant Thank You (Stampin' Up, retired). I couldn't get my circle cutter to make a nice layers around the white and none of my Nesties fit. I then found this medallion Nestie that was a bit small but I really liked how it looked peeking out from behind the sentiment.
The card base is Gina K's Luxury white. The green panel is Wild Wasabi and I used a CraftsToo embossing folder for the flowers. The blue ink and paper is Night of Navy. I also put two small half pearls on the sentiment.
Hopefully she will like them enough to actually use the cards.
Challenges this Card Meets:
Crazy for Challenges - Let's Get Wordy (Focus on the Sentiment)
Creative Corner - Many Thanks (Is fifty enough?)
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
PaperTake Weekly - Old, New, Borrowed and Blue (Old - The Sentiment, New - The Navy Cardstock, Borrowed - The mailbox I used to have the White Cardstock delivered, Blue - The Ink for the sentiment.) Yeah! I did all four!
