Symmetrical Bride and Groom Card

Symmetrical Bride and Groom Card

You’d think I had a myriad of weddings to attend this year with the latest interest in making bride and groom cards. Not sure what the fascination is lately but I had another idea for modifying the tux and dress card.

I will be using my latest bride and groom, tux and dress card as an anniversary card for a good friend. I can’t help it, I think this tux and dress is adorable!

So, I have the tux in a two inch square on the left.  And a dress on the right, again in a two inch square. Each square is lined with silver cardstock. I silver embossed the words “forever and always” underneath.

It was extremely difficult to capture the pearls in the photograph. I think the flash on the camer and the DCWV glitter paper I used on the dress did not get along well.  Anyway, I put a few pearls on the waistline and one at the neck line. Gives it some flare.

Pretty simple and straight forward card. Guess that’s what appeals to me about it. I call it my Symmetrical Bride and Groom card because of the 2″ squares and the underlying text. I debated about putting the squares at an angle, one overlapping the other. But I couldn’t decide if the bride should be on top or the groom. So I put them side by side! =)

The tux shirt is glitter paper from DCWV. I used a 1/4″ hole punch for the buttons.  Just hand made the tux shirt shape and the bow tie. The dress is from My Sentiments Exactly. I stamped the back of some DCWV glitter paper and cut out the top part of the stamp. I did use dimensional puffy tape behind the 2″ squares.
