FCCB 165 - Wedding Days

Happy Monday!  It's time for another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!  This week's challenge is Wedding Days - we want to see your wedding card or gift creations!

I created this card for my step-niece's wedding.  The blue background paper is actually from her invitation.  The top half of the invitation was blank and had a black satin ribbon tied around it.  I was able to cut off the portion of the invitation with the printing on it and use the blank half for the background of the card.

I love this silhouette couple on the Wedding cartridge.  I decided to cut the image out twice, once in black and once in white shimmer paper, then cut just the dress portion from the white shimmer cut for the bride's dress.  The image had small round cuts down the back of the dress, but I hid those using my Gypsy and instead put small gems.  I also highlighted the cuts on the dress using my Star Dust gel pen.

I used black satin ribbon from my stash on the card.  This ribbon is thinner than what was tied around the invitation, but that's of course where my inspiration came from!  I hope my step-niece likes her card that was inspired by (and partially stolen from!) her invitation.  :-)

Link up your wedding creations over at Fantabulous Cricut by Sunday evening.  I'm looking forward to see all your fabulous creations!!

  1. Such a pretty card! I really like how you cut it twice so you could get the shimmer for the dress and the gems are so pretty too!
