Vellum Butterfly Wedding Card

Morning everyone!  Another non-DT card from me today….  You may remember that I showed you a thank you card made for my brother to take to South Africa with him next week?  Well, today I have the card I made for him to give to the happy couple whose wedding he is attending there.

Steering well clear of digis, I thought it might be nice to create a memento card for them, with their names and the date of their special day.  I used my Silhouette to cut the names, date and frame from cardstock and a little sparkly vellum.  The names and date were glued directly to the card base, while the frame was popped up on 3D pads for a little extra depth.  The butterfly was created using my Martha Stewart punch – my favourite embellishment for wedding cards and invitations!

The asymmetrical frame tricks the eye a little – I can assure you that the names and date are perfectly centred, but the unusual shape of the frame keeps making me check it…!  It’s been driving me a little bit potty, can you tell?

Best wishes to the happy couple!
