They said I do

No challenge here just a show and tell. I made this card using a template I purchased from Priscilla Styles. I just love the style of this card. You can also purchase a matching template for an envelope box. You can check it out here.

I used #320 Kissing Tilda and #126 Kissing Edwin. These are available over at Magnolia Stamps US. I also used #519 New Bench but I cut the legs off to make it a swing. I added some beads as the chain. I cut out the template for this card a second time and trimmed it down for matting. If I had just used the printed paper it would have been too light to hold the swing plus I like using more than one color.

Here is a close up of Edwin and Tilda. Notice they are not facing each other. I wasn't sure what my sentiment was going to be and then I had this bright idea. Here is a pic of the open card. The sentiments are he said and she said on the outside.

I used my Cricut Alphalicious cart for the letters.

On the inside I used they said and then I do with Congratulations in the middle.

Here is a pic of the envelope with matching paper on the outside. I added magnets to hold the envelope box closed.
