Good afternoon
My friend asked me to make a wedding card for a wedding she was attending. I saw the invite which was cream with accents of black and red so I thought this may be the theme and set about making this card
I went simple and elegant, less is more as I usually do for cards I send or am asked to make so the card base is ivory hammer card and I also managed to purchase some ivory hammer paper from Hobbycraft to match for the insert. (looks white in my photo but in real life is ivory!!) The card is A5 in size (8 1/2"x5 1/2").  I used Tie The Knot Cricut cart to cut the cake   cutting the shadow twice to pop dot in black, base in black and layers in cream. I then 'went to town' with lots of red crystal gems and pearls to finish off. The text is computer generated font is amaze.
Hope you're all enjoying the snow I love it as long as I don't have to try and drive!!
Keep warm and have a lovely weekend everyone!

Hey Julie. Gorgeous wedding card my dear. I just love your sophisticated design, even though you think it is simple. It is so elegant with a lite touch of class.
