wedding card

Today I was supposed to be in PA for a friend's wedding....but sadly my husband and I chose to stay in MA due to the hurricane making its way up the east coast.

We were really looking forward to seeing them, as it's been about 5 years since we were all together last. I am very disappointed that we can not be there to celebrate with them, but I am happy to share the card I made for Brienne and Nathaniel.

I used the layout from Moxie Fab's horizontal sketch challenge:

I made a card inspired by their wedding invitations. Although printed (beautifully) on cardstock, it looked like a lace overlay on top of a natural-colored fabric.

I used kraft as my card base, and on stitched squares of white lacy fabric. The sentiment was printed in the same font as the one on their invites!


Thanks for stopping by!
