Wedding Card

My MIL needed a wedding card that she could put money in. She told me that she did not need anything fancy, chuckle. I have had a role of paper that I purchased years ago that was so beautiful that I could not bare to cut into. I thought that this was the perfect occasion to get over that fear. This was a bit complicated and took a little time. I made the scroll from from vanilla CS and rolled on it with crumb cake ink and the Very Vintage. I rolled it off once before rolling onto the paper to soften the look. I then curled it and burned the edges with a candle to age it even more. The sentiment was printed from the computer and the birds were made with the Bird Builder punch. The small hearts came from the Owl Builder punch. The large heart was from the Heart to Heart punch and covered with SU's Champaign glass glitter. The ribbon is silk ribbon from when I thought I was going to get in to silk ribbon embroidery.

The inside had a place to present some money for the newly weds. I used two scalloped circles and some ribbon to hold it secure. There was several other details but it was a while ago that I made this card so I cannot remember them all.
I have yet to hear whether or not the couple enjoyed the card.
