Wedding Card

My boss is getting married on Saturday and I thought I'd make him a card. It's not a big fancy affair, just a small group of family and friends out of town. So I thought a simple card would be best. Tried to make it not too masculine and not too feminine.

This card used products from Papertrey Ink, except for the ink for the flowers. I used kraft card stock and stamped the cake with Fresh Snow ink then stamped the flowers in Pink Grapefruit ink by Versa. I added the leaves using New Leaf ink then embossed the card with my nestabilities. The Cake, Flowers and Leaves are from the Piece of Cake set. The sentiment is from the Sweet Love set. This is another one of those cards that looks so much better in real life.

Thanks for taking a peek today and I'd love to hear what you think.

Simply gorgeous, Val. I love the kraft base and the colors that you used. Too bad I can't enlarge the photos on your blog. I would love to see the details. ;-)

I love "clean and simple" cards, and this one is just beautiful. I love the wee little sentiment, and the gorgeous wedding cake, and the kraft paper. Awesome card!
