My sister is getting married on the beach in Cape Hatteras, NC next month. Today I made her a card. I scraplifted an idea from Cousley over on the Scrapbook.com galleries.
The marquee shape is from Elegant Edges. The sand dollar is from Life is a Beach, and the shells are from Paper Doll Dress Up (it's actually from the mermaid's outfit!) I used colored pencils to accent the shapes, and foam adhesive to pop them up. Congratulations is from Holiday Cakes. I embossed the background using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. The punch is Martha Stewart Deco Fan. The ribbon is just some from my stash. On the inside I used another marquee shape in ivory for the card message. I also made a pocket to add gift cards.
The second card is one from my stash, I can't exactly remember how long ago I made it. It's a very simple card. I added the yellow "ribbon" (not sure what you'd really call it) to make it look a little more finished. I have a box of cards so that if I need a quick card I have a few to choose from. I really didn't have much time today to craft, so this was perfect.
