Wedding Congratulations

RSVP Addition

My son Josh is standing at one of his best friends weddings in July. He had to send back the RSVP and wanted to include a card of congratulations for it. He brought me the card and the envelope so I could make one to fit the card. I also went a step further and matched the card to the RSVP card. I didn't include a picture of the RSVP card though as it has her name and info on it and I didn't think that would be quite right!

I used the Sketch Challenge from Splitcoast Stampers for the layout, and stuck with black and white as those were the colors of the RSVP card. The main panel is a cuttlebug embossing folder; textile. It is mounted on a black photo mat that I took from a random wedding mat pad. I like the texture of it and thought it would go well with the embossing. The cross piece is made of the same paper. The salutation comes from my Best Wishes and Blooms set by Unity Stamp Company.
As finishing touches. I added rows of pearls to the top, centre and bottom and then to the flowers on the cuttlebug panel. The ribbon and bow are the final touch to the outside.
The inside liner is embossed with the same design and a ribbon added to unify the card. The pearls and stamps were both bought at The Paperie.
