Fall is around the corner and so are weddings.

     The perfect card for a perfect wedding.  When fall comes around I always thing of all of the happy married couples to be.  Everyone wants to get married in the fall.  Oh the changing leaves, oh the cooler weather, and oh I want and indoor / out door wedding.  Leave all of that to the wedding planner.    The one thing a wedding planner can't offer, is a special card from the heart.
      When it comes around to those elegant cards, it is sometimes hard for me.  I am so used to making cutie patootie cards.  Here is a card that I have created and I hope it helps all of those who enjoy card making.
On This A2 card I used the Sweethearts cartridge.
The dress is cut at 3 inches and the words at 2 inches.
For the designer paper, I used a piece out of the Hodge Podge stack from Paper tray Inc.
I used a Martha Stewart scallop dot punch and a Swis Dot cuttlebug folder.
For the dress, I did a trick using something MOMO uses often and that is to run the layer through the Xyron machine and add glitter.  Here I used Dazzling Diamonds by Stampin Up.  Diamonds are a girls best friend you know.
I ran my ribbon through the hold in the punch and then wrapped it around my card.
I used pop dots to pop up the second layer of the dress and also on the veil.   To top it off I added a heart bling at the bottom of the Mrs.
This one was  fun to make and I hope it helps you.
