A very special wedding card,

I made this card last week for a friend of mine, he's the brother of my son's Karate instructor, and, he was thrilled to bits when I presented it to him, it was funny really becuase all the fellas were ooohing and ahhhing over it, it was a bit of a strange feeling really, because I've never had guys make such a fuss over my cards before,

The biggest page was embellished using the Birds and Swirls cuttlebug embossing folder with the Big Shot, I also used the Double Heart sizzix die and a domed initial sticker, I did the other side of the page the same but just changed the initial.

The second page was kept fairly simple, I used the inside of the Double Heart Die and just finished things off using some gold peel-offs.

The main page is not as difficult as it looks, I used the White Celebrations keepsake board for the hearts, finished them off with the Stickles range of glitter glue in Crystal, and also used some silk roses, the small book is a rubber stamp I've had in my craft stash for years and just never used it until now. I finished off the 'spine' of the book with a gold 'pull bow' and another small embossed heart.

Thank you all for letting me share some of my 'better' creations with you all, so untill next time, take care everyone,

Beautiful creation, it really is!!! I love the wedding book stamp, very elegant, just goes to show everything gets used even if it takes a while.
