Make it Monday ~ Going to the Chapel

I tried something new this weekend, and you are the first to see it!  If you follow my Facebook page here, you know I love to make baby- and birthday-related paper crafts, including cards. 
This year, I'm stretching myself to go beyond what's comfortable.  Sooo, on a recent trip to Michaels, some wedding stickers whispered to me (yes, craft supplies really do call my name, especially when they're 40% off) and I scooped them up.  There is just something about a gorgeous dimensional sticker I can't resist!  Here's what I pulled together:

I wanted to make something simple, yet elegant.  So, I pulled out my Sizzix Boutique and embossed some pretty swirls onto the white cardstock.  I love the texture the embossing adds to the layers of paper and cardstock.

I got so excited about the way the card turned out, I made another one :).  This time I added a polka dot embossed cardstock to the swirls and used a sheer gold ribbon accent instead of twine. 

I can't wait to get these in the mail to Divine Designs by Nancy in North Carolina...if they do well, I hear wedding bells in my future!

Nothing says love like handmade...Thanks for popping in today.
