Finally, A good Wedding Card!

Happy Easter Everyone!
It is a warm 74 degrees here in Joshua Tree Ca. and I am relaxing on the couch. No cooking a huge meal for me today which is a change and kind of nice. I hope that you all are enjoying your Easter and having good family time with one another.
I made a  wedding card last night and posted a picture on Facebook and a couple of people asked what files I used so I thought I would blog it for you and tell you. First I have to say I really have a hard time making wedding and anniversary cards and most of the time I end up throwing them away and buying a card. I was really surprised and pleased that this one came out so nice. So here is what I used to make this card, thank you for those of you that asked how I made it.  I am happy as always to share how I did something and if you make one I hope you will share it on SVG cuts Facebook page. I would love to have the chance for a fresh idea too. On to the card
 I used Solar White Neenah cardstock from  Simon says Stamp for the base. The patterned paper is from Stampin up they call it designer paper. I cut the scalloped ovals at sizes to fit the silhouettes from Mary's file Kate's Silhouettes and the ovals were from the Scalloped shapes file also a SVG cuts file.  I cut the dress out of white American Craft card stock and embossed it using a embossing folder from Stampin up called Petals a Plenty. I used perfect pearls on the dress although you can't see it in the photo but it looks pretty. Then I put pearls from Michaels on her head as a head piece. I used the same pearls on her bouquet and added a swirl of pearls I also got from Michaels to her dress then added some extra pearls on the bottom to add sort of a tie. I used one pearl for the boutineer and of course added butterflies from my Martha Stewart three butterfly punch. I decided the butterflies needed some pearls too so I added them as well.The finished card size turned out to be 5 1/2 x7. That was about it except for the words which I thought about as I made the card because throughout their  married life they will forever and always remember this day. Ours was the hottest day on record in September of 1978 and I had on a long sleeved dress. The two minutes of reflection and "music" seemed like at least five minutes and my poor spouse to be had a terrible headache from nerves. We still laugh about that day and the "two" minutes..
Forever and Always they will remember this day, forever and always they will laugh and share with their children the mishaps that happened on that special day, Forever and always may they look back on this day with fond memories. I pray it will be a long and happy marriage for them both! Thank you for visiting my blog, both the sets I used are available at or just click on the link and it will take your right to it. As I always say please out do me and show me I would love to see them. Thanks again and a very Happy Easter to you all.
