Wedding Card

My best friend's son is getting married next week so I needed to make a wedding card. I got my Wedding cartridge for free from! I love that you get points when you purchase certain cartridges and you can purchase cartridges and other items with these points at You can even add the points that you receive in the "gift" cartridge to your savings points. I did have to pay $10.00 shipping this time but last time they let you use extra points for replacement of shipping charges. I don't know if they will do that again but hey, $10.00 for a cartridge is a great deal!!!! I must confess, I took Robyn's wedding card design from and revised it a bit for my card. I just loved hers. My friend's future daughter-in-law's bridesmaid dresses are a cornflower color and I did not have any cornflower ribbon but I did have the ribbon that was on a basket that I had won at her shower so I thought, why not reuse it! It had the right silver glitter wire on the borders so I just taped it around the cornflower paper that I had and used also for the larger border. The card measures 6 x 6 inches. The base is an embossed Bazzill Basics Paper that I purchased at Pat Catan called Swirlpool-Bazzill White. The blue border is a random piece of 12 x 12 paper that I had and measures 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. The white piece on top of that measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. The blue strip underneath the ribbon measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. The veil was cut from the same Bazzill cardstock and I added Frosted Lace Stickles to it and the buttons on the back of the dress. I lined the inside with the same cornflower paper as on the front. Now I just hope I can find an envelope to fit a 6 x 6 inch card! Or possibly I can make one, we shall see.
