For their special day....a beautiful wedding card.....

 In June, I held a Specialty Card Class.

 In this class the girls made six cards in total, 2 wedding, 2 sympathy, and 2 get well. 

Today I wanted to share with you the first of these cards- a gatefold card  (center opening) in basic black.

The dress was cut out of whisper white cardstock with our dress die, and elongated,and I cut a curve with scissors at the bottom edge, then embossed.  I added some  pearls at the neckline and a flower at the waist.

The tuxedo part is simply a basic black triangle with a white triangle (modified) on top.  I  cut these triangles with my paper trimmer.

The bow tie I cut freehand with scissors and then use a hole punch for the center of the bow tie. 

A quick coloring of the pearls made this tux extra special. Did you know it is really simple to change the color of basic pearls....simply grab a permanent marker ( I use Bic) and start coloring.

On the inside I put a piece of whisper white cardstock so that there was room to write , and added a wonderful image stamp from the Best of Brides and Babies Stamp set.
