Wedding Card

A friend of ours from church was married in Ireland over the summer.  She is returning home to receive a blessing in our church, so I have made her a card for the day.

One of the benefits of attending a blessing after the wedding, is that I saw photos of the bride and groom on their big day, this gave me ideas for making the card.

I wanted to spotlight stamp sunflowers, but didn't have a suitable stamp set.  Once I searched through my stamp stash, I found a set of daisies by Altenew which would look like sunflowers once coloured in yellow and orange.

After background stamping with the 'sunflowers', I die cut her new name using the Altenew Big Alphabet die set, and only coloured the letters of the name. The 'Mr and Mrs' comes from a Sizzix set.

 I added a few gold sequins to complete the card, along with a nice Anna Griffin sentiment inside.

This is an incredibly beautiful space to have a wedding reception. The space at wedding venues Los Angeles is a long hall with a few side rooms (perfect for dancing and hor d'oeuvres). The windows at the end of the hall led to magnificently gorgeous panoramic views of the city.
