Brocolli and a Wedding

This is the first wedding card I've ever made. I love how it turned out and plan on making more. I just hope I will have a reason to use them... hint, hint... Mitchell, Chase, Taysia!

My nephew Brock married a beautiful girl named Koaly. Her real name is Heather but she goes by Koaly. Together they are Broccoli... get it? Instead of rice we threw broccoli at them when they were leaving. What a cute idea.

I used texture card stock paper and dry embossed it (using a dot embossing folder) for the dress. I added white daisy ribbon and a large circle sparkle to the waist to dress it up. I used the same white daisy ribbon and tied it on the side of the card.

If you look closely I also added white shimmer trim to the center, top of the dress (to make it modest... hahaha.) Just kidding, I added it to cover the black card stock that was showing.

For the boys shirt I used texture paper and dry embossed (using a striped embossing folder). I also added square sparkles for buttons and tied black ribbon for a bow tie.

The black card stock base I used added a nice touch with all the sparkles. I also used a lot of 3-D foam tape to add layers to the card. I love how the card turned out once it was all put together.

I found this card (below) on Pinterest and fell in love with it. It was the card that inspired mine. The pattern for this card can be found at This card opens in the center which was a nice touch. However, I didn't use the center opening for my card. I really like the white glitter paper that was used for the dress.

I added two hearts on the inside of the card and dry embossed them both. I used two different embossing folders, one with Japanese writing (at least I hope it's Japanese) because Brock speaks Japanese.

Have you made any wedding cards? Where did you find your ideas? I plan on making more like this one but I Waldo want to try making some other types of wedding cards too.
