A Beautiful Wedding

We're home again after attending a beautiful wedding yesterday in the Southern Highlands.  The happy couple had gone to so much trouble to create a perfect day - quaint, country church followed by a gorgeous outdoor reception at the Montrose Berry Farm.  They couldn't have asked for better weather although by nightfall it had become rather chilly, but not a whisper of a breeze.

Wedding Cake



There were so many little details, even on the tables - vases of flowers along the whole length of each of the three tables, little bundles of books tied with string, even little teacups planted with succulents, and for each guest a little jar of homemade jam (mine is boysenberry, my DH's is pear & vanilla).

My DH and I stayed in a beautiful B & B, with each room having a different theme (we had the Swedish room) and this morning we were treated to a very yummy breakfast.  We had a bit of a look around Bundanoon (which is where we were staying) before heading home around 1pm as we need to be back around 3pm.  Such a lovely part of the country, we need to go back again but stay longer next time.

Anyhow, enough of the wedding.  I thought it time to show off my card.

I found the textured paper when I was in Melbourne recently and thought it rather elegant with its random hearts.   I stamped the words (SU 'Heard from the Heart') onto the shimmery cardstock in Jet Black Archival which fades slightly giving it a softer look.   A length of black satin ribbon with a touch of bling completes it.

I really should have photographed the inside prior to writing on it, but because I didn't want to goof up, I stamped the words (SU 'Occasional Quotes') and then wrote on the insert before sticking it inside the card.

For a wedding gift, the young couple had asked guests to contribute to the 'wishing well' so I made this little envelope pouch to match the front of the card and popped some money inside.  The finished card was then put inside a co-ordinating envelope and tied with a black ribbon.   This way I figured the 'gift' couldn't accidently get parted from the card.

I was very happy with the finished card and hope you like it too

Happy crafting!

  2. Of course, I was eager to see the wedding card you made, Helen, but loved seeing the wedding photos, as well! Such a beautiful day for such a wondrous event! The card is absolutely ELEGANT! Love that silver embossed paper on the front of both the card and the gift envelope. I love SU! for their great sentiments, and you have beautifully chosen the perfect ones for this card. Your card will be a keepsake for the couple, I know.
