Both Sides

I had a little bit of fun with these cards....I started off making a Wedding card for the Creative Crew Challenge, using the colour challenge fom Our Creative Challenge. I used the bride stamp that I received in a RAK from Sue (aka coffeestamper aka Perk) which set the tone for the wedding card - CAS, which in itself is a challenge for me. As I was making it, it got me to thinking about Weddings....

Now, I do want to state before I go any further, that I am happily married with a fabulous husband...but I was thinking about the Wedding Day and all that it brings. It seems to me, that no matter now organised you are...at some point in the day, the stress gets to you, hence the second card - I wanted to show the real facts about a Wedding Day!! Yes it is the biggest day of your life, with so much leading up to it and so much planned for the day...and then there are the hopes and dreams....the excitement is huge and the pressure very real!!! The image on the second card made me laugh when I saw it...it is stamped off from my friend Deb's stamps...along with a few others...I am sure they will 'see the light of day' before too long! LOL!!

Both cards have embossed backgrounds, with the image being stamped onto Nestie, then chalked. The Bride has Kindy Glitz on her dress and veil to make it look special for the occasion! It also has a 'Funky Heart' by Fiskar punched out of embossed hearts, it is sponged and has ribbon threaded through and an embellishment added. paper piercing finished this card off. The 'Stress' card has a strip of DP with scalloped border added across the middle and Die Cuts from Provo added. This too is finished off with paper piercing!

Thank you for stoppping by, I would love to hear your Wedding Day stories...so make sure you leave a comment!! God bless you!

  1. You know this is so true. I just went through all the stresses of a wedding. It was beautiful and the bride kept it all together so well. She just made it up in her mind that she was going to enjoy. I admired her for that. These are terrific Linda. I love the before and after idea. Way to go.... Hugs.

  5. These are both super Linda! I laughed at your bride/stress combo. True I'm afraid! I actually had more stress when my DD got married than when I got married! LOL! When I got married I was young and my dad being the pastor... the ladies of the church just took over and took care of most everything. My wedding stories though do include a couple mishaps... some I can mention, some I can't! We had a 2pm wedding and just as my dad started the opening prayer a train started to pass... the tracks were RIGHT next to the church... a train almost NEVER went thru... but it did that Aug. 14th at 2pm! You couldn't hear a thing over it so he just kept praying and it went on and on and on! Then, just as we were saying our vows, my BIL who was an usher (age 14 at the time) fainted right over. So... there are a lot of laughs when we remember it now... but in the end, we got hitched and still are, soon to be 38 years later! So there are my wedding memories! My DD's went MUCH better but with much more stress! Love your cards Linda... you too are such an inspiration!!!
