For Her Wedding

Hello to all my buds who so kindly comments on my posts! This card and gift card holder was made for my sister's (Annie) great friend who just got married. I really did not have a lot of time to make this so I made it very simple, but I do like the way it turned out.

The card was made using white cardstock and the DP is from Handmade Flowers from Paper Pizzaz. I just love these papers. I used Deckled Nestabilities in SU's Sage Shadow and White. The Sentiment is from Flourishes Many Sentiments and I used Sage Shadow Ink to match. The pearls came from Michael's and the ribbon is May Arts.

The Purse Card Holder is from Gina K's Designs Blog. I just love this darling bag and I have made at least three more from Gina's tutorial. If you go to her gallery, you can see the card holder. The tutorial is on page 41 of her blog. Again I used Sage Shadow for the purse and the same DP to make it look like the card. I used some white flowers that I got from Michael's and a spacer with brad. I don't recall where I got the spacer and brad...sry. The ribbon is SU's Sage Shadow. I also used magnets from Gina's shop for the closure.




If you look at the card holder when opened, you can see where the card is supposed to go...I have a piece of white paper stuck in where the card will go.



We are having some nasty weather here...It has been storming most of the day and tomorrow there is supposed to be a 90% chance of more rain. Ugh!


I have made a new place where I take my pictures now. I hated that awful tent. It took up so much room in my studio...all I did was get a foam poster board from Hobby Lobby. I cut it so I could have a backdrop and a floor for the cards. Put my photo lights on and ta da! I do think the pictures are better with this new system. I hate it, but I have so many cards that I want to post that were taken in that awful tent...so bear with me when you see those cards...you will know it by the darkness of the photos and you can see the back where I used pins to hang the backdrop...I am so glad I got rid of that tent. You can click on the picks to get more of the deets.

Thanks again for stopping by and leaving such awesome comments!!
