Love is in the air!

I have had two weddings to go to in October. One was the wedding for which I made the invitations and programs that were posted earlier . I needed two cards to go with my gifts and I had seen someone post something similar to these. She commented that she thought sometimes simpler was better. I agree. I used Spellbinders nestabilities to cut out the computer generated names and embossed the backgrounds with Cuttlebug embossing folders. I incorporated the colors of the weddings in the cards and stamped a verse inside. People appreciate personalization, and these are personalized not only in color, but they have their names on them. The cards are both larger than A2 size (the brown/cream/green one is a half sheet size), so I used the bands or ribbon to disguise my "piecing" of the embossed panels. They were fun and easy cards to make.
