Bridal Shower and Wedding Cards

Happy Sunday!

Today I have a bridal shower card and two wedding cards to share. My brother's best friend got married on Friday so I made a card for my brother and for myself to give. Of course, I also made a card for the bridal shower which was held in February. I used Shimmery White cardstock for all three cards.

Let's start off with the bridal shower card:


The dress is a die from Memory Box that my good friend Jean gifted me. Some tulle and pearls finish off the stylish wedding dress. The flowers were die-cut with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits (flowers) and Stylish Stems Framelits (leaves). When creating this card, I envisioned the bride throwing the bouquet over her shoulder.

A peek at the inside:


The congratulations sentiment is from the So in Love stamp set which I die-cut with the frame from the Rose Garden Thinlits. The sprigs are also from the same thinlit set.

My card was inspired by a card I saw while surfing the Web, but I don't know who to give credit to:


It was hard to get a half-way decent picture as I kept getting glare and reflection from the Silver Foil Sheet. The sentiment was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.

Here is a look at the inside:


I kept it simple by just embossing the sentiment.

No stamping on the card I made for my brother Kevin to give:


Again, I used Silver Foil Sheet so it was hard to get a good picture. In case you can't tell, this is shaker card. In addition to sequins, I die-cut mini hearts from Silver Glimmer Paper.


The sentiments are stunning die-cut in glimmer paper.

Although the weather wasn't so nice, the wedding and reception were lovely.

That's all for me today. Thanks for stopping by!

hi, Lisa
ich bin immer noch ganz begeistert von diesen Hochzeitskarten! Eine großartige Idee mit der Spiegelfolie!
Ganz lieben Dank nochmals für deine wundervolle Karte zu meinem Geburtstag! Leider kann ich im Moment keine Fotos hochladen und kann sie leider nicht auf meinem Blog zeigen. Hole ich aber nach!
Wünsche dir ein frohes Osterfest und ganz viele Knuddels
