A Wedding, and a Retirement Card

Hello and welcome here!  It's been a long while since I've posted something other than for the Design Teams I'm on, partly because I didn't want to be tied to the computer so much, and partly because I just wasn't creating anything.  But since work is done for the summer (I work in a school), I've had time to myself and have been bitten by the creative bug again!

Here are two cards I made for work.  One lady was getting married, and the other was retiring.  The cards  needed to be bigger so that everyone could sign them.

Card Size: 5" x 7"
All white cards are always so hard for me to photograph and edit.  It tends to overexpose when I lighten it up a bit, so I have to leave them a little darker so that you can see the details. I kept it Clean & Simple to reflect elegance.  The image I used is a digital image I found HERE, at Wedding Girl Blog.

Recipe: Digital Image-Wedding Girl Blog Bride Silhouette, CTMH CS-White Daisy & Spring Iris, Spellbinders-Labels 10, EF-Craft Concepts Budding Vine, White Grosgrain Ribbon, White Satin Edge Ribbon, Pearls, Foam Squares.

Card #1 Challenges Entered:
Paper Craft Star - Embossing
Ruby's Rainbow - Emboss It
Creative Card Crew - Swirls and Pearls
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Girly w/ a digi image

Card Size: 5" x 7"
This card was for a teacher who was retiring, so I wanted it to be a little extra special.  I love the lacy feel of the Floral Frames and Romantic Rectangles by Spellbinders, and I was able to layer them up because of the large size of card I needed to use.

Recipe:  CTMH SS-Sweet Flowers, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Sweet Leaf & New England Ivy, CTMH Ink-Creme Brulee, Blush, Vineyard Berry, New England Ivy & Olive, Spellbinders-Romantic Rectangles & Floral Frames, Foam Squares, Pearls.

Card #2 Challenges Entered:
Paper Pretties - Celebrate-Any Occasion Card\
Papercraft Star - No Designer Paper

Enjoy,
Deneen

Wedding card is played an important role in every person's wedding. You have to make it best and more crafty is well because you use it to invite people for your marriage.
