6 Wedding Cards

My baby boy is getting married in September. Why is it that even though he is 27 he is my baby boy? The colors they picked for their Fall wedding are persimmon and fern. The fern matches perfectly with Stampin' Up's Always Artichoke but there wasn't an orange color that matched the persimmon so I used Bazzil's Saltillo. On a couple of the cards I also used Bazzil's metallic Rusted cardstock to give the invitations some shimmer. I also splurged on the striped satin cardstock for the first card. All stamps are from the To Have and To Hold set except the background stamp for the last card was stamped with the discontinued French Flair stamp. Which card do you like best? Travis and Nikki picked different cards but Nikki and I picked the same card! I like this girl!

Since I'm excited about Travis getting married and it's been a while since I offered blog candy, I'll put all the ones who pick the same card that Nikki and I did in a hat and give away a stamp set to the winner. Good luck guessing the right card! Just in case you can't see them well enough, just click on the picture and a really big picture of them will pop up. You will be able to see the detail better but it is still a fairly bad picture. I already sent the cards to Nikki so I can't take a better picture. I'll draw next week, probably on Monday since I'll be away at our church's Girl's Camp for the rest of the week. Boy, will I be behind on my emails by the end of the week!

HARD decision. All of them are so beautful Elaine. I even got the kids in on this one to choose their favorite. We voted for the card with the glitter (dazzling diamonds?). Top row, middle one. Were we right? P.S. I also like the top right one as a close runner up FYI!

Diana said...

I like the top middle one the best.

Quon said...

I think out of all of them I really like two of them. My first favorite has to be the middle one on the top and my second favorite has to be the third on on the bottom.

These are all truly gorgeous- amazing how many styles you can get with one colour scheme and image!

I like the bottom left best- the 'to have and to hold' one!

I like both cards on the right, but the bottom is my favorite. I love how you used the flower right where the bouquet should be--very creative.

Have fun at Girls Camp!

My favorite is the bottom right...love the french flair in the background. The one above it would be my second choice. Love that color combo.

Joyce Spear said...

Wow, hard to pick a favorite because they're all delightful! My personal favorite is at the bottom left, "To Have and To Hold."

I wanted to say how much i like the one on the bottom right. I love the clean lines and the way the flower "boquet" really pops. Have fun with all the wedding plans!
