One of my close friends from university married the love of his life this
September. Before the big day I spent a week or so trying to find a card to
celebrate their marriage but I couldn’t find one that I really wanted to give. The
range of Mr and Mr marriage celebration cards is so very small, so I decided to
make one using my paper stash.
I looked for colours that I knew that they both liked and
this formed the main inspiration for the card. I wanted something simple but bold. Using pinking shears I cut a rectangle of striped orange and white paper to form the background. I used my clear
stamps and silver ink to create the Mr & Mr message on white card and mounted the message on blue paper. I finished the card off by adding a
wooden heart button and a thin piece of off white ribbon. It was a really quick project and only took me about 20 minutes to
make this card...it took me longer to write the message that was inside the card!
On their big day I felt a huge sense of pleasure adding my handmade card
to the pile of cards to celebrate their special day.
