"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies"
People often seem to keep their wedding cards. I have seen scrapbooks made up entirely of wedding day memorabilia, including every card given the couple by their family and friends.
If you live in a remote area or have limited access to shops, buying a special greeting can be doubly hard. I've seen lots of repeat cards in those memento albums as well, having lived in remote areas a lot of years myself. Sometimes the choice is not as large as we would like or there may be one card that makes all guests think of the happy couple, so many people wind up buying just the one style of card...that doesn't ever have to happen to you again!
Perhaps you already make wedding cards, invitations, save-the-date cards, thank you notes and order of service booklets. I hope you will feel free to inspire us with your work and maybe even share a wedding story or two by uploading some examples using the form at the bottom of this page.
I went to a family wedding where I took great delight in thinking about the bride and groom and in choosing new paper, stamped images and embellishments I thought they would like. I took time to add lots of little details like the gilding of the edges of my layers, doodling, embossing the stamped image and adding ribbon.
I used a new collection of papers that had just come out (they were made by Stampin' Up!) as well. And adding the little pearls just seemed so right. I even customised my hand made envelope by lining it with matching paper and writing the bride and groom's names in my best hand written, flourishing, illuminated font. I wrote exactly what I wanted to write inside my card as well, because I could :)
Of course, I also enjoyed myself crafting this card, but let's not tell the bride and groom there were any other reasons for me to sit down at my craft desk.
