Someone's Getting Married Today

The youngest daughter of friends of ours is getting married this afternoon.  I'm posting this early because we'll be getting ready to join the festivities at our traditional Table 7.  You might think that the card is a little different for a wedding card, but if you look at the invitation below you'll see why I put it together this way.  

You see the tractor there amongst the flowers, but it is not a farm wedding.  The groom happens to like tractors and I was lucky enough to have a tractor stamp that I got from PictureShow Stamps a while back.  I colored it green and yellow and I do know that it's not exactly a John Deere like the one on the invitation, but I think it'll do.  I first stamped some wheat in the background with Hero Arts Tall Wheat.  The sentiment is from SU's Word Play.  The daisy was die cut and I added the MS micro beads to the center.  I also added a sticky rhinestone for the ring.  The doily is an SU die cut and the embossed panels in the background are SU also.  (If you need to know the names, drop me an e-mail and I'll get back to you on it.)

On the inside I added a sentiment from another SU set and the silhouetted flowers from Upsy Daisy.  I used the window frames die for that - die cut the white and traced the outer side for the black frame.  

Did you see what I wrote on the tractor?   I'm pretty pleased with this as my creativity has been at a low ebb lately and I do like the way this came out.  Hope they do!

Now, I'm off to get beautiful ----- well, presentable will do.  It's going to be a hot, but fun afternoon and evening.


  1. Wow Lorraine! They are going to LOVE this card! You did an amazing job of taking all of the key elements and colors from the invitation! I love all of the shape and texture...and humor :) Hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding! :)
