Be In My Wedding?
I have had the hardest time asking my friends to be in our wedding party due to their busy, hectic lives. Also in my thinking is who really wants to wear a bridesmaid's dress? No one. I wouldn't.
But, I am absolutely thrilled, honored and so very grateful that the recipient of this particular card has agreed to stand beside me on our very special day.
Since I'm a wimp and couldn't even ask face-to-face, I made this card in hopes that it would do all the work. I used the digital stamp "Happy Mother's Day" from My Favorite Things and altered it so that the lady was carrying a bouquet rather than the original flower pot. I did this by printing the image and cutting out the lady's body and using it as a template to trace. I then stamped a bouquet image from Hero Arts. All images are on Georgia Pacific cardstock and are colored with Copic markers.
The sentiment is computer-generated on patterned paper, and was punched using an EK Success paper punch. Texturized cardstock and Martha Stewart adhesive pearls were also used to create this card. The inside of the card has the recipient's name with a question mark.
Thanks so much to my dear friend for agreeing to take a part in our day!
Stay tuned, because I hope to have two friends with me on our wedding day. Another card is under construction.
