Here's the card I made for him at 11:00 last night while he was still out working.
I found a card on pg. 130 of the SU catalog that I loved the layout of, so I used the basic sketch of it to create my card. I tried to go very MANLY, but as you can see, I just had to add a few sequins to make it stand out! I left the little fringes from the sequin trim to rough up the look a little.
The point at the card front is made by marking the center with a ruler and then each side at 1-1/4", then using the trimmer to cut away the excess. The chevron embossing is spritzed with Early Espresso and the Spritz Tool, and "enjoying" is gold embossed on Mossy Meadow. The bottom strip is from the new Vintage Typeset DSP. I'll be using that on so many things!
I tied off the bottom with Baked Brown Sugar thick twine.
And here we are, saying I Do, on a breezy July day on the Miles River. *sigh*
