Tis the season for winter (or summer) weddings!?

I love weddings.  They are always such beautiful occasions.  I don't, however, love wedding cards.  As we all know most wedding cards are pretty generic and plain old ugly.  They stick an old pic of a red rose and some sappy sentiment on it and call it a day.  Case in point:


This is especially true if you opt to get a "money card".

I was asked to make a money card for an upcoming wedding (in Australia, no less).  So I looked through all my trusty Silhouette files and found a money envelope and decided to decorate it with very chic and classy papers.  Since weddings are super special occasions I felt that metallic papers would do the trick.  I have to say I am quite pleasantly surprised with my end result.

Let me know what you think...

Been feeling very "bedazzly" lately. :)

It's kind of vintage feeling, I love that.

This is the inside where I included the date and names.
Underneath there is space for a hand written sentiment.
I used linen paper which is great quality and can be written on
since most metallic papers won't hold ink of any kind.
The stripes are on the envelope, which I also created with my Silhouette.

Off to an Aussie wedding.

For my next project I'll be channeling Chanel...hmm should be fun!
