A Wedding Card for the Happy Couple

Last month, our youngest son's friend tied the knot with his high school sweetheart.  Oh my, are they at that age already????  Yikes.

When I first set eyes on this wedding image by Sister Stamps, I knew it was a must-have.   I love white-on-white cards and thought it would be perfect for this special occasion.  The details may be a bit hard to see but if you click on the pix to enlarge it, it'll be easier to see.

Here's a close-up of the sakura flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts and buds by All Natural Accents....

Some of the cards I make have flowers and embellies so a box-type envelope was definitely in order but I never looked into purchasing one.  THEN at a recent rummage sale, I spotted this "Envelobox by Crafter's Companion that was placed in a Ziploc bag.  Ohh, I felt like I discovered gold and grabbed it QUICK. Guess how much I paid for this????   Just 3 bucks.   Woo-hoo, what a steal of a deal.....cha-ching$$$$$.   Well, I was so eager to try it out but holy cow, I read the instructions over and over and over, and tried to make an envelope several times to no avail.  Then the light bulb went on.  I checked YouTube and THANK GOODNESS I found a tutorial.   It was soooo EASY-PEASY.  YAY!!!!

Here's the envelobox I made for the wedding card.  I also used the "Fancy Tags Two" die by Spellbinder.

Ingredients for the card....
Cherry Blossom Embossing folder
Spellbinder dies
Silver textured paper from "Christmas Foil" pad by american Crafts from Ben Franklin Crafts
Fran-tage from Ben Franklin Crafts
Edge punch by Stampin' Up
Corner Accent die by Joy Craft with the center section snipped off
Sentiment by Hero Arts
Ribbon and charm from stash.
