Wedding Card

Earlier this summer I had made some wedding cards for my stash. One was specifically made for a friend's wedding this Sunday. However, my stash, including the one earmarked, quickly disappeared. My mother ended up using them all. The woman gets invited to more weddings than anyone I know. Anyways, now that my friend's wedding is fast approaching, I just realized I don't have a card for her!

For this card, I actually designed it all by my little self. No plagiarism anywhere. The finished card is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. I have 5x5 envelopes, and like to use them whenever I can personally deliver the card. This is based on the Matchbook card. See tutorial here. I modified it to fit what I needed when finished. My friend is Asian, and didn't register anywhere for her wedding. So the easiest thing is to give "Red Envelop" (aka cash). I wanted to have a place on the card to put the envelop, without it falling out.

I began by cutting a piece of 4 3/4 x 11 cardstock for the base. I scored at 4 1/2, 4 3/4, and 9 1/2.
I used the Cricut to cut my shapes here. The scalloped oval came from Storybook cartridge. The ovals came from Wild Card. The oval in Storybook is a bit fat. I wanted it more elongated. The dress is popped up, embellished with rhinestones, Stickles and a little bow. The charm in the corner is the Chinese character for double-happiness. The colors here are based on the invitation colors. I remember my friend telling me her colors are purple, green and silver.

The inside.
I put tape on both ends of the small flap. This will house my Red Envelop.
