Wedded Bliss

This is the time of year that I LOVE to go to weddings.  We have only been to one all summer, which is quite depressing to me.  You know what that tells me?  That we are getting so old that all of our friends are already married!  We do have an invitation on our fridge for Kelsay and Ryan's wedding in October, but we will be in the DR so we won't be able to make it!  I am so sad but I will be making them a fab scrapbook to make it up to them.  Maybe I can get them to freeze some cake for us. :)

In honor of summer weddings, I decided to make a cute little wedding card.  I used this sketch from Mojo Monday.

I don't have any big circle dies (I need to get some!), so I went with the square sketch.  I started by using my oval Designer Frames Embossing Folder because I NEVER use it, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity!  It is pretty small, so I decided my card would be 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  This is a cute little size.  I really should do more cards this size, because I never have much to say on the inside of my cards and they end up looking kind of blank anyway! Ha!

I love making these flowers and they are super easy.  Punch out 5 scallop circles and  spritz them with water.  Crumple them up, then unfold them.  Fold them in half, then in half again.  Unfold them a little and glue four of them together in a circle, then glue that onto the last one.  I used my heat tool to dry them before gluing them, and used a hot glue gun to glue them together, just because I am impatient and want it dry NOW! :)  Then I spritzed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  It looks more white in person than it does in the picture!
