A Card In Honor of the Royal Wedding

Did you watch the Royal Wedding?  (If  you haven't there's just a bit of a spoiler alert here in this paragraph) Prince William & Kate Middleton are now the new Duke & Duchess of Cambridge!  I didn't get up at 3am to watch, but I did set my DVR.  I'll have to play back later to watch their vows, as I came in when they were coming down the aisle.  But after seeing their "double" kiss on the balcony at Buckingham Palace (the sweetest thing!) I just wanted to post my Congratulations to the Royally Happy Couple!  I remember watching Prince Charles & Princess Diana's wedding, but this one has to be my favorite so far...LOL.

Anyway--I made this card a while back (long while back), but I thought you'd be interested to know that I used a gold foil chocolate candy wrapper for the mat, which I used a border punch on.  The flowered overlay is from some beautiful wrapping paper that I just loved, and the sentiment is a sticker.  But isn't this sentiment just Perfect for this new married couple?!  Which, of course, is why I chose this card to highlight today, even though it's not as "weddingish" (yeah, I know...not really a word).  =)  I cut two corner punches from the lavender cardbase and added a touch of dark purple ink to the cut out corners to finish it off. 

The camera I used when I first made the card and took the photo wasn't that great, so I apologize the coloring is not better. 

Thanks for stopping by today -- keep an eye out this weekend for some blog candy, as I'll be celebrating my one year Blogaversary!  =)


  1. A true romantic you are! Very lovely card in honor of the Royal couple! It was such a beautiful wedding. Ever since my DH heard that Prince Charles has never had to put toothpaste on his own toothbrush, I have been hearing about that! I plan to put it on his TB tonight as a joke! Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. Such a lovely card. Thanks for your emal today too, you r so sweet. take care, gerri

  3. That purple scripted paper is very old...think its from a Somerset Studio mag. My new motto (starting last yr) is glue that paper, cut that ribbon and burn that candle!Im really trying to use all the things I have saved over the years. (Dont get me wrong there are still some very very special things that I have saved....LOL)gerri
