Wedding cards ...

... this was made for the mother of the groom who wanted specifically a "Scooby" (Subaru) car and a Jasmine flower.  The base is cut from an A4 ivory as is the topper.  The hearts are nestabilities and it is finished off with some white flowers and leaves from MCS Click, Print & Go, with a few gems in the centres of the flowers.  Three pearls at the bottom and some gold peel-offs around the edge.

... is an 8x8 inch card, again on the ivory card as the base.  This was to the happy couple from us!!! The background was matted on to gold mirri card.  The topper has been gold-leafed around the edge.  The downward strokes on the "W" has been glittered.  The ribbon and the bow have been decoupaged.  Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
