For my card I made a gate fold card from white cardstock. I embossed two smaller white cardstock panels for the front and then used Distress Ink in Spun Sugar to highlight the embossing. I used gold mirrored cardstock for the frame, cut out with my Silhouette, and then some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers on the corners. I placed some half backed pearls on either side of my flowers. I tucked the top right corner of my frame under the flower to keep it closed. Inside I used more gold mirrored cardstock for the inside panels and the corners, also a Silhouette cut file. My image was colored with Prismacolor pencils. I knew their colors were pink, so that was why I used pink for all the accents.
And now since I have a captive audience, just a little bit about my own wedding. I was married in September of 2000, a beautiful Fall wedding in the Church I was baptized in. Thankfully all the farmers (including my Dad) were done harvest and could attend. Now I know how many years it's been by what year we're in. GENIUS! For my something new my Mom made my wedding dress. I couldn't find anything in my size to try on and so we picked out a pattern instead. I'm very blessed to have a Mom that can do that and be such an important part of our very special day.
The story I would most like to share with you is about our honeymoon. No not that story, naughty minds. We were in the airport going to Prince Edward Island for our Honeymoon on July 24th, 2001. Because we both worked in schools, we were obviously not allowed to take time off in September for our honeymoon so we waited until summer holidays the next year. The attendant asked us if we had been in possession of our luggage the whole time or if anyone had tampered with it. The Husband said, "no, but it might explode." Complete silence everywhere, audible gasp from me. Then he added, "you know, because they're so full". His attempt at humor. If this had been after September 11th, 2001 I am completely confident the Husband would still be in the Regina airport. But as it was I said, "you never say that word in an airport!". And the lady behind the desk said he should use the word, "expand". So we very, very luckily got to go on our honeymoon together. I tell people I was going either way.
