Sending Wedding Blessings :)


"When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out."
 — Elizabeth Barrett

Isn't that just beautiful!  Truly a wonderous time if that of weddings and finding true love :)  I'm blessed to have married my best friend many years ago and here we are today, 4 children and lots of bumps in the road later, but still blessed beyond measure! 

When a package of CottageCutz dies arrived in the mailbox, I was tickled pink to see this gorgeous horse and carriage die!  It's just over the top fairy-tale sweet!  For my card, I wanted to do something a little different to make it shimmer and sparkle.  I used heavy weight cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  Taking the pieces, I used Modge Podge evenly coating the surfaces and then sprinkled it with super fine Martha Stewart glitter.  So Romantic!  I added to to cream/gold/chocolate brown papers to give a little contrast to the white sparkle and tada - wedding splendor!  This makes a wonderful wedding or anniversary card for those storybook weddings :)

 

You can find this die and many others from the Wedding Collection at The Scrapping Cottage located here!  These dies are so incredible - a clear, crisp impression and so versatile!  I already have another idea swirling in mind for this one! :)

(Forgive the poor lighting in my pics!  I have to re-take this one for a better look at the sparkle & shimmer!)

Big hugs!
Bigger Blessings!
