Wedding Card

I made this wedding card for friends.  This is by far the most complicated card I've ever made.  It took me quite some time to figure out what I wanted in all of the numerous spots to fill and how I wanted to personalize it just for them.  Of course I couldn't just take a standard trifold card size either.  A couple of the panels weren't the right size for what I wanted so I adjusted the over all measurements. And the layers!  There's layer upon layer.  The front has eight and a couple are even popped up.  I most like the bride and groom hearts on the front.  It's difficult to tell but they are stamped and heat embossed in a sparkly lace design.  The Celtic crosses are just for me :)

I love how this turned out and they loved it as well.  It's not something I'm going to be doing very often, but I really enjoyed making something so special for such a special occasion

Lexi's Creations Fancy Folds
The Secret Crafter Challenge 170 Ribbon
