Wedding Butterflies

No, I don't mean cold feet!  I made this card for a friend that got married today.  I think I've only made one other wedding card.  I don't know why they intimidate me, but they do!

This card actually came together easily.  I was inspired by cards I saw at my last demonstrator meeting.  Stacey, a demonstrator that just joined us, brought cards from a swap she was part of.  The theme of the swap was black & white.  As soon as I saw them I knew it would be perfect.  My friend's wedding was black and white!


I used the Taste of Textiles specialty paper.  It's hard to tell in this picture but butterflies and card base are done with the same paper.  It has a pearly sheen with tone on tone stripes.  It is gorgeous in real life!  The black has a linen texture to it and is also from that pack.  I used the Texturz plate for the big shot, to give the diamond embossed pattern. I punched the bottom with the Eyelet border punch.  Of course I used the  Butterflies die. :0)


This paper is not double sided so I lined the inside with another piece.


Here is the card and envelope.  You can see the stripes better in this picture.  I bet you're wondering about the envelope.......


The card was so pretty and had lots of texture that it seemed a shame to put it in a plain Whisper White envelope.....I all of a sudden thought, if I can run the card stock through the Big Shot, why not the envelope!  Since I dotted the black card stock with the white gel pen, I decide to dot the envelope with a black marker.  I left a space in the middle to write their name.
