First Wedding Card of 2013

I received my first wedding invite this year, which means summer is approaching!  This card is a bit bigger than the usual ones I make because I want to stick a gift card into it – it is 8.5 X 5.5 (basically an 8.5 X 11 sheet of cardstock folded in half).

After surveying the wedding stamps (especially sayings), it looks like I need a few new stamps (that is my story, and I am sticking to it).  I used two stamps that are old 2004 Stampin Up, ones that I have not used in years, and cannot find the names or which stamp sets they belonged to. 

I laughed when I completed the card, because I lost complete focus on the fact that this card has to be mailed across the country.  Between the flowers, butterflies and puffy bow, mailing is almost amusing – fortunately, there is a picture of it prior to “flattening” by the postal service.
