Wedded Bliss

Embellished Events, Everything Eleanor, Petite Pairs
 Yes, wedded bliss.  That is what a daughter of our church was just blessed with.  As a community, we celebrated with her at a bridal shower.  I just love those occasions!  Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to this one, but sent the gift along.  Yes, the gift is the card.  Oh, first I have to tell you about the front here.  Well, the circle was stamped with the Everything Eleanor stamp after I markered only the outside.  I didn't want the lines on the inside.  The bells are from the Embellished Events stamp set.  They were first inked in VersaMark, then inked in Crumb Cake, then stamped down.  I used my Iridescent Ice embossing powder to make it show up darker and shiny.  The doily sizzlit is such a nice frame for these stamps.  Best Wishes is from the Petite Pairs stamp set.
Apothecary Accents
And then the inside.  yes, that is a gift card holder as part of the card.  I saw that someone made a card out of a 12 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock.  Well, I figured this would be a lot easier.  I took a 3" wide piece of cardstock and scored it at 1/2", 1 1/2", & 2 1/2".  After that I punched an extra long slit with my word window punch.  The edges are attached to both sides of the inside of the card with Sticky Strip.  I also put a bit of Sticky Strip next to the opening holding of the gift card so that it would tightly hold the card.  So, what do you think?  I kinda like it.  :-)  This way the gift cards don't slide all over or fall out of a pocket.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station.  Many fun hours of crafting to you!
