Best Wishes

This is a card I made to go along with the framed layout for a wedding gift. The base is SU Very Vanilla CS, the striped paper is by Rusty Pickle. I used a MS border punch on the black CS and Spellbinders Cartnation dies for the flower and added a black pearl from my stash for the center.. The heart stamp is by Verve, as is the "Best Wishes" sentiment which is stamped in SU Cherry Cobbler.  The border is from SU Vintage Vogue set stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

A Wedding Gift

This is a layout I made and am framing it and giving it to a friend for a wedding gift.  I used a photo from their wedding invitation, scanned it and changed to b/w. I also used the sentiment and the date in the hearts on vellum from the invitation.  I hope she likes it. I think it turned out really great.
I used DCVW and SU cardstocks, Rusty Pickle striped paper, MS border punches, Spellbinders carnation dies and francy tag die. The black pearls are from my stash. The flourishes are a My Favorite Things die and the title is cut from the Elegant Cakes Cricut cartridge.
The corners are made by cutting a 2" square and then cutting into triangles by cutting from opposite corners, using a border punch centering it on the long edge of the triangle.  It is not my idea. I saw it on another blog, but don't remember which one.  I thought it was a neat idea. You can use any border punch.
