Handmade Cards: The Wedding Edition

In a one-week span I had two weddings.  Therefore, I have had a very busy couple of months!  Here's some of the cards I created in the last little while:

Bachelorette Martini Card
First up, the bachelorette party.
This card was for my friend Amy.  It features a martini-glass cut out, where I then sandwiched glitter and confetti in between plastic to create a super fun girl's night out theme.  I used the same martini outline in black & white polka dot paper, and just some plain strips of paper & ribbon on the opposite side to balance it.

Square envelopeSquare wedding cardNext up is a card I made for my friend Katy's wedding.  I decided to go with simple, traditional wedding colours for this one.  It's a square card on silver cardstock, followed by gold vellum, patterned white paper, and two sticker strips that say "wedding".  The middle stamp says Happy (heart) Day, and there's some gold swirls above and below the stickers.

I created a square envelope by using the same size circles and layering them (4) and tying with ribbon.  This tutorial explains it much better!

And here's the last one - Amy's wedding card!
I knew Amy was going to have a fall themed wedding, as it was taking place up in northern Ontario, where the leaves had already started to turn... So I thought I'd make her something to match the surroundings.  I used a few different Cricut cartridges - for the leaves, the letters, and even the couple (It's actually Ariel and Eric, from the Disney Dreams Come True cart!)
