Wedding Card for Katie

When Katie and her family moved into the house next to us, Katie was only 4 years old. Today, she is 23 years old and getting married! I wanted to make a special card and gift for Katie and her husband. The wedding card is pictured on a black background to show off the swirls. It's actually a side step card and stands freely. The bride and groom as well as the "Happily Ever After" are from the Divine Weddings cart. The flourishes are from several different carts. I made a custom size for the card base. It's 6.5 inches long and 3 inches high when folded. The "steps" on the side are 2.5 inches wide. Once you add the bride and groom and all the flourishes, the card is approximately 10 inches wide and 6 inches tall. So, I made a custom fit box to hand deliver it in.

I also wanted a handmade part of her wedding gift, so I made a floating frame. The "G" is from the Storybook cart and the words are from Divine Weddings cart. All the letters are cut in vinyl and applied to the outside of the frame and there is no backing in the frame.The beige color is the wall color of my family room {where I hung it for a photo}. The frame came from Michael's.

Best wishes to Katie and Jason!
