So Saffron Wedding



My friend's son is getting married next month, so I am not wasting any time getting my card ready! Now all I need is a gift. This card was super simple to make, but I think it looks very special.

I made it square to fit Stampin' Up! square envies and I made the envelope flap match, although I didn't picture it here.

I used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder to jazz up the middle part of the card and I attached my sentiment to it and tied a piece of seam tape in a bow.

Cards are quick to put together when you have your punches handy. A little tip that always gets me finished quickly is to have some sentiments already stamped onto neutral papers and then pop them out with a punch. Later you can add your borders in colors and put them together to frame your sentiment. Or, try making several in the same color schemes and have them laying on your desk top for a quick pop onto a plain card. I tell you that no matter how many cards you make, you sometimes don't have just the right sentiment when you need it.
